Book Description

Aug. 1 2008

Leslie Ludy, author of Authentic Beauty and the bestselling When God Writes Your Love Story, reveals how a young woman’s pursuit of acceptance and sameness directly counters her true purpose—to be set apart by her love for God and God’s love for her.

This empowering message filled with inspiring stories, personal illustrations, and a foundation of God’s Word to awaken young women to sacred femininity and a life infused with meaning. Each chapter encourages readers to release worldly standards and set their sights on a more worthy pursuit as they:

  • surrender to God’s love and wholeness

  • embrace the real blueprint for beauty

  • enjoy spectacular purpose

  • captivate the masculine heart

  • cultivate spiritual strength
  • This journey will spark a desire in every woman to leave the fairy tale of the masses behind and walk toward the unique beauty, love, and dreams God has for her.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible book! Sept. 24 2013
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This book truly teaches about following Jesus and only Jesus.

    Yes, it gives practical tips that some may find restrictive (wearing clothing that doesn't cling, not flirting or trying to draw attention to yourself, etc...) but the tips are given not to create a drudgery, miserable life but to teach young women to set themselves apart for Jesus. To make Jesus number 1 in all areas of our lives.

    Leslie does an incredible job of exhorting young women to better themselves according to Jesus' ways and not the world's. She is very sympathetic, is not arrogant or know-it-all, and shows compassion while still refusing to settle for less than our absolute best for Jesus.

    I recommend this book for any women who has chosen the set-apart life for Jesus (and set-apart does not mean nun-like).

    5.0 out of 5 stars This book is not for the "lukewarm" Christian women! Aug. 26 2008
    By Hailey Hooey - Published on
    Set-Apart Femininity: God's Sacred Intent for Every Young Woman Leslie Ludy's new book Set-Apart Femininity is not for "lukewarm" Christian women or for the faint at heart.

    Having been reading Eric and Leslie Ludy's books for the last four and a half years, I can say, Leslie has a much more fired up tone compared to Authentic Beauty. In a way, Set-Apart is a sequel of sorts to Authentic in the fact that Leslie still talks about Godly women and how to be a woman glorifying Jesus Christ.

    However, in this book, she takes it deeper and turns it up a notch! She is asking women everywhere to truly make Jesus Christ the main priority in their lives. She is asking us to make Jesus our heavenly Prince and give him the rightful authority over our lives that he deserves and to seek not only physical purity, but mental and spiritual purity as well. She is asking women to truly and sincerely seek God with all of our hearts, minds, bodies, and souls so we can glorify Him and live our lives to the fullest.

    If you are ready to separate yourself from the world and live a set-apart life for Christ than this book is for you!

    On a more personal note, this book was very moving for me, and I highly recommend it to any woman, young or old, who wants to surrender the control over their lives and hand the reins over to Christ.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Set Apart MUST Read Aug. 27 2008
    By Nathan Johnson - Published on
    Set Apart Femininity is just like what Leslie Ludy beckons young women to become: a lily among thorns. Even in today's Christian culture, few books touch the issue of dying to self in order to earnestly seek one single thing, a passionate love relationship with Jesus Himself. This book is a treasure and a beacon of light within the shallows of mediocrity and complacency. It shines forth the truth of the Gospel and the lifestyle Jesus calls us to. Leslie Ludy, with her poetic and stirring prose, blazingly calls young women to the indwelling life of Christ - not what you can do or perform but what He can do in and through you! It is about a life completely given over to the King of kings and the Lord of lords; for Him to spill and spend your life as He chooses.

    As a man whose heart is set on Jesus, Set Apart Femininity captures the essence and beauty of what I deeply desire for my future wife to be. Yet this book was both inspiring and convicting to me personally as well. Though the book was written specifically to young women, men can glean a lot about the character of Christ and what we as believers (both male and female) are called to be. This book is an encouragement to stand in the face of culture, stand for purity and truth, and allow Christ to live His spotless life through us.

    Like a diamond hidden within the rocks, Set Apart Femininity is a priceless treasure in book form. You will not only want to read it more than once but will be compelled to share it with everyone you know. This is no doubt Leslie Ludy's finest book to date, which I am highly recommending to everyone I know. Find the true treasure, not in yourself, but in Him.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Quite the challenge! Sept. 18 2008
    By ZoeGirl - Published on
    This book has captured what it means to be a Godly Christian woman. And its not about wearing a potatoe sack and doing whatever guys tell you to do. You are allowed to be beautiful, to shine - but also to fight for truth, to stand up for those that everybody else ignores or passes by. Being a woman is not all soft and flowery, though there are those aspects also. But as Leslie pointed out, it is time to get some fire back into our hearts! Not a self-centered fire that burns and destroys, but a holy fire that inspires. I felt my heart being moved, and my spirit rising up to join the ranks of Godly women everywhere who have made the choice to be Set-Apart for Christ and His kingdom. Read this book and be encouraged, challenged, and empowered.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Appears to question the sovereignty of God as presented in Scripture?... March 31 2010
    By H. Stull - Published on
    I really enjoyed this book up until the chapters where Ludy begins to subtlely question the doctrine of God's sovereignty. Yes, the book was a little repetetive and I had a few minor issues, but I thought Leslie had done a really great job of challenging teen girls to be set-apart from the world. That is, until she repeatedly asserted (somewhat indrectly) that Satan has his own power apart from God. Ludy says that she had mistakenly believed that God causes or allows all things. But that she NOW knows that it isn't true. A careful reading of this chapter (can't remember which one specifically; gave it back to my baby sister) makes it seem that Ludy spends little time in the Old Testament, particularly the book of Job. Her list of things that do not come from God begs the question: If anything that might possibly have a negative effect in our life is not from God and is from Satan, is God powerless to stop it? Her handling of this topic is really head-scratching, particularly after the solid content of the previous chapters.

    One other comment: while much of what Leslie presents in the early chapters has been gleaned from the Bible and is solid instruction, not a lot of what she writes pushes the reader toward Scripture for themselves. I wish she would have taken more time to give credit to where she got her ideas and to push girls to study God for themselves firsthand from His Word.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Conviction vs. Condemnation May 30 2013
    By Brittany - Published on
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I had a friend of mine recommend this book, so I was happy to pick it up and start reading it. Through the first few chapters I was very impressed. She speaks to the reality of the cross, that we are nothing without Christ. And I continued to look forward to the rest of the book. While I'm still working through it, I find it grieves my heart. I often think "Perhaps this is conviction?" And in some ways I do feel conviction. But more often than not, so far, I've found that her case examples of christian women she uses, she condemns. While she may be 'fired up' she almost seems to mock. For instance on page 87, she says regarding a woman saying her approach is far too extreme " I am assuming that to this woman, the verse "come out from among them and be separate, and touch not the unclean thing" means something different than what it actually says. I am as also assuming that she knows very little about the many amazing, christ honoring Quakers...etc." And while the words themselves perhaps do not send people under the bus, the repeated examples of Christians who have it all wrong, leave a bad taste in my mouth. Do the people that she has in her life have a faulty view of the gospel? Possibly. No, probably. But the way she uses these conversations makes me feel like she is abusing relationships to support her claim. I'd be afraid to have a conversation with her about my incorrect views for fear of being used in the next book.

    I'm going to finish reading this book. I think she's passionate and wants others to experience Christ in his fullness. I'm trying to hear her heart and not her words, and I know the main message is to let go of any other worldly claim upon your life and run towards Jesus. And in that I wholeheartedly agree. I've found that books like "7, a mutiny against Excess" cause a greater conviction in the same direction, while leaving the reader empowered rather than shamed. I hope as the pages continue, My opinions will be further changed.
