Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild by Mary Kassian
About: Girls Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild.
Girls have gone wild! And we're not just talking about someone from the romance novel or star from the latest hit movie. She's the girl next door, your best friend, or someone in your family. She may even be you.
That's because the longing, the thrill, and the fun is real. Very real.
Mary Kassian isn't naive to that. But she knows there's another side to it--the devastation and heartache being wild can bring. Her insights from Proverbs on the differences between a saucy, seductive Wild Thing and a smart, biblically-savvy Wise Thing is a must read. Every minute you spend here will help you--or someone you love--replace the emptiness and guilt of being wild with the power of living out God's spectacular design for women.
But be prepared. This isn't your grandmother's handbook on etiquette. It's God's Word powerfully unfolded by someone He's commissioned to speak the truth in love. You'll be captivated, challenged, and impassioned to be far more than the world's model of the perfect woman. You read this book and apply its principles and you'll become something your Heavenly Father and Friend has always intended you to be: A Girl Gone Wise in a World Gone Wild.
"Mary Kassian has done it again. With aplomb, grace, and wisdom, she sets the right course through some of the most treacherous and dangerous issues of our day. With just the right balance of truth and understanding, Mary calls girls and young women to a bold, strong, and biblical model of true womanhood — an understanding that honors God and shows the world a counter-revolutionary model of genuine womanhood. When Mary Kassian writes a book, women can count on sound advice and biblical wisdom from a gracious friend." - R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Mary Kassian speaks with rare insight, clarity, directness, and grace as she challenges the prevailing winds of our culture. She paints portraits of two contrasting kinds of women and sets forth a vision that calls women out of their dysfunction, pain, and deception, to walk in the light of God’s redeeming truth and grace. This book is extremely important, timely, and needed—I cannot think of any category of women (or men, for that matter) who could not benefit greatly from reading it and grappling with these critical issues. A “must-read” for women who desire to honor God with their lives and to influence others to do the same." --Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author, teacher, and host of Revive Our Hearts radio program
