Sex and the Single Christian Girl
Fighting for purity in a rom-com world
by Marian Jordan Ellis

Can Purity Survive Real-World Temptation? "True love waits" - but what exactly are you waiting for? After all we're constantly being bombarded with Hollywood's idea of romance - that sex is no big deal, that everyone is doing it, that it's the only path to a happy ending. Maybe you've even begun to wonder, What am I missing? Is the wait really worth it?

Marian Jordan Ellis has been there. She knows the pitfalls of giving in to temptation - but also the blessings of God's best found in waiting after she committed herself to Christ and to sexual purity. Now, from one Christian woman to another, she hopes to spare you from the heartache of sexual sin and instead point you toward God's best. Marian offers lots of practical advice backed by biblical truth, to equip you with the tools to overcome past mistakes and future temptations. 

Marian Jordan Ellis holds a master's degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and is the founder of Redeemed Girl Ministries. She is the author of several books for women including, Sex in the City Uncovered, and The Girlfriends Guidebook. A sought after speaker Marian shares her testimony at college campuses nationwide through her Girls' Night Out event. Marian is married and makes her home in San Antonio, Texas.

I have to say that I love the writing style in Sex and the Single Christian Girl, its so easy to read and follow. Although I wouldn't call this my kind of book, I couldn't put it down. I do have a few issues with it though (nothing like Ten Days Without though) I don't really like that all the blame for the pressure on sex to be put on the media. The media simply gives people what they want to see, they don't manufacture anything.

There should be more of a focus on the relationship pressures of having sex. Its harder to put the blame on your partner, but the biggest pressure comes from them, and the second biggest from your friends. I did however like that Marian Jordan Ellis, put things like marriage and romance in perspective, and with a good Christian background. If you were interested in the Fantasy Fallacy, True Love Dates,  or I Kissed Dating Goodbye this would be a great book to read.
