What Are You Waiting For?

 First, I chose this book to review because there were still almost 60 copies available. Not the most popular book on the review list. Why not read it and write a review? It's just about sex and the one thing nobody ever told me about it. But really, it was way more than that! I love the opening paragraph, "This book is not for spiritual monks. If you spend more of your time at church getting to know God's word than out in the world living it, you probably won't like this book. It's raw and real. If you can't handle words like masturbation, orgasm, and porn, you should just put it down now."
   According to some reviews I read after ordering the book, this is for young, single, Christian women. I'm none of those except the Christian. I've been married for almost 10 years now with 3 children, so of course we've did the deed. This book still taught me some things about what the bible says about sex, love, and relationships.
    All I have to say is "yada, yada, yada." No, not just chatter talk because I don't know what to say. In the bible it tells us "Adam lay with his wife Eve and she became pregnant (4:1). Hebrew word for sex in this verse is yada. The definition of the Hebrew word is "to know, to be known, to be deeply respected." How many of you know this involves more than just the physical intimacy with another person?
   This book gets a little more in depth, but is filled with too much info to put in one review. I really recommend this book to any young woman. The author did a lot of research and biblical studies for this book. She explains so many scriptures and what God really wants for us where marriage and sex is concerned. My friend keeps bugging me to borrow the book, so it's her turn to get informed. She will find out the one thing no one ever told her about sex!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. This is only my opinion and nobody else.
