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).

HASH(0xa31017e0) out of 5 stars This book is not for the "lukewarm" Christian women! Aug. 26 2008
By Hailey Hooey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa3101834) out of 5 stars A Set Apart MUST Read Aug. 27 2008
By NRJohnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa3101c6c) out of 5 stars Quite the challenge! Sept. 18 2008
By ZoeGirl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa3105048) out of 5 stars Appears to question the sovereignty of God as presented in Scripture?... March 31 2010
By H. Stull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.

HASH(0xa310512c) out of 5 stars I have to be brutally honest here. Oct. 15 2015
By Brittany C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While this book has some valid points and wasn't as bad as her others, Ludy's whole effort in writing books to young women seems to be centered on trying to scare these girls in to "holiness". Her writing doesn't at all focus on the love of Christ for everyone, but instead focuses on this do-good-or-else attitude that has young people running and screaming from the church. I despise the way her ideas are set up, with long passages about do this and that the right way (with a huge focus on sex and virginity), and then at the very end there are like two sentences about the grace of God if you have already messed up. Haven't we somehow gotten this backwards? Isn't the whole reason that we love and follow Jesus because he loved us first and died for us and forgave us when we were at our worst? And honestly, what is with this outrageous focus on modesty and virginity, like it's the absolute pinnacle of holiness? What about the fruits of the spirit? Don't get me wrong, abstinence until marriage is a beautiful and God's way for marriage, and I encourage it. However, trying to scare someone into keeping their virginity intact is not only ineffective, it's a really good way to push young girls away from God if they do or already have messed up in that area. I say all that to say this; Moms, if you are looking for a book for your daughters that will uplift them and show them who they are in Christ, I certainly do not recommend this book. Please look elsewhere. I recommend "Jesus is ___" by Judah Smith, or Something by Elisabeth Elliot, or really anything that isn't written by Leslie Ludy. I hope I don't sound too harsh, but I personally read this book as a teenager, and was deeply hurt by it. But seriously, if you want to read an awesome book that promotes holiness and at the same time teaches your true identity in Christ, check out Judah Smith.
