Never Judge A Book By It's Cover

Words cannot describe how suprised I was when I got the mail today and my newest book What Are You Waiting For? The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About Sex by Dannah Gresh arrived. Great I thought, some kooky religious book about why even kissing before marraige is bad. Just what I want to read this summer. I flipped to the first page to skim over what nonsense I had in store for me and two hours later I found myself reading the acknowledgments. What?!? I had read the whole thing in one sitting? I couldn't put the book down, I literally sat at my desk engrossed in this book and dead to the world. This book was mesmerizing and an absolute must read for anyone. Mrs Gresh talks about religion and sex and it really revolutionized how I viewed it. She wasn't one to shy away from any hard topics and even discusses: porn, masturbation, and homosexuality (although I loved the book, I still don't agree with all of her viewpoints towards homosexuality, still a little bit narrow minded for me). Her quest to finding the life changing truth about sex is amazing and inspiring. It causes one to think more critically about our fast paced sex crazed culture and evaluate how it affects our relationships. I can't rave enough about this book. What a total suprise. I expected to hate it and I ended up loving it, what a read!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
