The Bare Naked Truth by Bekah Martin

Thursday, September 19, 2013

The Truth About Sex and Waiting ... Uncovered Purity. Sex. Boys. Waiting. There's something about those words that makes everything complex in a heartbeat, and raises more questions than answers. Is there something wrong with me if I don't kiss a boy after a date? Or am I doomed if I DID? What if waiting is just a one-way trip to life as a crazy cat woman? And what if I tend to, um, think about a certain boy in a certain way? It seems that the lady at church and your friends have two very different opinions on the subject. And 'Your Budding Womanhood: Staying a Beautiful Flower for Jesus' just isn't cutting it. Bekah Hamrick Martin knows the waiting game isn't easy or straight-forward. In The Bare Naked Truth, she lays everything on the table---including some embarrassing moments---as she explores the honest, naked truth behind what God means by purity. With additional entries from popular authors, you'll see the bare naked approach to waiting isn't always easy, but it's worth the risk.

Goodreads Summary

I think that this book might not be for everyone...but that it certainly contains useful information that will help girls in relationships.  I wish I had had this book about a year ago (I would have loved to know alternatives to every situation).  This book contains plenty of embarrassing stories that will make the reader cover her face with the book, but I think it is worth plowing through.  In the end, I was grateful that the author was that honest.  Everyone has different opinions on boys, dating, purity, etc... and I found the authors' opinion very valuable.

This book does contain multiple Bible references and verses-why this book might not be for everyone.  However, I did find the truthful tone very refreshing and think it would be interesting if young girls gave this book a chance.  This book is recommended to teens/young adults.
