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).
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
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.
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.
