“I should have read this book 15 years ago. I should have been able to tell my 23 year old self that God loves you because you are His child.” Read the review
A big thank you to Enduring All Things for the honest book review of The Scarlet Virgins!
“So much literature that I’ve seen on the topic simply bashes purity culture calling its perpetrators “bigots” and “hypocrites” and “pharisees” and the like.
Don’t get me wrong. Some of them are these things. But I think a lot of parents and spiritual leaders are innocent in their motives and are simply victims of the pendulum swing of culture just as the teens they influence. I really appreciated that Rebecca addressed this in her book.”
I am happy to share with you the latest book review of The Scarlet Virgins from In Our Pond.
“Through her touching book, The Scarlet Virgins, Rebecca chronicles her story of healing and hope, as she sheds the works-based Christianity of her childhood to rediscover grace. Thirty-somethings who has been negatively affected by the Purity Culture will appreciate how the Gospel shines from her writing. Parent, who are trying to work through what you should teach your children, will find lots of Scripture to guide you in Biblical thinking. And church members, you will benefit from this cautionary tale. Buy it, read it, pass it around- everyone needs to read this book.”
