In Leslie Ludy’s book, Set-Apart Femininity, you are given a message different from any other you’ve heard about what it means to be a girl. Ludy offers you a fresh perspective of God’s incredible design for women, and offers a life of fulfillment in Jesus that is completely countercultural. It’s a radical call to abandon the culture’s version of womanhood and live a life that stands out from the crowd, one that loves like Jesus loves, no matter what the cost. Although her views of our culture and American Christianity are somewhat harsh in their nature, she makes powerful points about how one of the reasons we are being held back from this set apart life is because of self-focused thinking that is so prevalent in the American culture today. She doesn’t cut to the chase about anything, she just explains everything up front. She shares many stories from her own life and previous books, as well as stories and examples of Christian women of the past who lived out a radical version of femininity as missionaries in their day in age. This message is very personal to the author, and that passion is very clearly communicated in its pages. This book is not for every teenage girl or adult young woman. It’s for the ones that long for more than our culture’s version of femininity has to offer. It’s for the ones that don’t mind living differently from the rest of the world, no matter the cost. It’s for the ones that would be willing to give up anything for the sake of Christ. If this sounds like you, then you can find a copy from most major book distributors today.
