All things bookish!

The Back of the Book (from Amazon):  Your sexual needs are far different from your man’s. 

And they may be more dangerous.

When does an affair begin? Not with the first forbidden touch…but with the first forbidden thought. Unexpectedly, you find yourself enjoying a powerful emotional bond with another man. You feel like you matter to someone again. And the door you thought was locked so firmly–the door to sexual infidelity–is suddenly ajar.

The only way women can survive the intense struggle for sexual integrity is by guarding not just your body, but your mind and heart as well. Every Woman’s Battle can help you learn to do that.

Using real-life stories and examples from her own struggle, Shannon Ethridge helps women like you–whether married, engaged, or planning to marry someday–to:

·     Understand the four unique components of female sexuality
·     Discern the common myths that keep women standing in the line of fire
·     Design a new defense to protect every aspect of your life
·     Cultivate an unimaginable level of intimacy with your husband or husband-to-be
·     Develop an affair with the one and only Lover who will truly satisfy your innermost desires: Jesus Christ

Written in the honest style of the best-selling Every Man Series but with a uniquely female perspective, Every Woman’s Battle will lead you on a lifelong path to true joy and fulfillment—sexually, emotionally, and spiritually.
 
Includes a comprehensive workbook for individual or group study.

NotJustLaura’s Review:  This is the best book on female sexuality I’ve come across and I really wish I’d read it when I first heard of it several years ago.  Writing primarily for married (or to be married one day) women, Shannon Ethridge lays out the reasons why a woman needs to guard her heart, mind, body and spirit and then provides a very practical ‘how-to’ for each area.  In each chapter, she points the reader firmly towards Jesus as our first love – before husband, others and self – and shares how she has learned to put this into practice.  The text is easy to read with lots of real life examples to illustrate the argument.  I particularly liked the ideas for retreats which are included towards the end of the book and am already planning how to carve out time to try one of them.
