Dianna Anderson offers a fresh approach to the purity conversation, one that opens a new dialogue with the most influential Christian authors of her generation.


Anderson's new sexual ethics draw on core biblical principles and set a standard for today's Christians that may be as influential Joshua Harris' I Kissed Dating Goodbye , Don Raunikar's Choosing God's Best , and Elisabeth Elliot's Passion and Purity .

Anderson uses her own illuminating experience with the purity movement to:



Reach out to women and men trying to reconcile their own sexuality with their understanding of "what God wants," cultural stigma, and media pressures Demonstrate how Christian ideas about purity have infiltrated American politics and culture-and why women are losing Offer an affirmative, healing path for everyone to understand their sexuality: one that reconciles scripture, culture, and common sense

Provocative and engaging, she will revolutionize the way you think about sex, abstinence, politics, and faith.
