Dianna Anderson offers a fresh approach to the purity conversation, one that opens a new dialogue with the most influential Christian authors of her generation. Anderson's new sexual ethics draw on core biblical principles and set a standard for today's Christians that may be as influential Joshua Harris' I Kissed Dating Goodbye, Don Raunikar's Choosing God's Best, and Elisabeth Elliot's Passion and Purity. Anderson uses her own illuminating experience with the purity movement to: -Reach out to women and men trying to reconcile their own sexuality with their understanding of "what God wants," cultural stigma, and media pressures -Demonstrate how Christian ideas about purity have infiltrated American politics and culture-and why women are losing -Offer an affirmative, healing path for everyone to understand their sexuality: one that reconciles scripture, culture, and common sense. Provocative and engaging, she will revolutionize the way you think about sex, abstinence, politics, and faith.
