About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
The point of her book is so much more than a modesty check, rather it's a heart check. She lays forth the gospel unashamedly, which should either leave you converted or convicted! Through Christ, we learn the true, untarnished definition of love and beauty.
She starts out by addressing the many "causes" in our life that we often attach ourselves to, and why our purpose really should be to live passionately for the Cause--the Cause of Christ. His love radically changes us, so we should show a life of radical outward change. I love how the focus was not herself, nor was it her readers--it was Christ. We shouldn't define ourselves (or beauty) based on what the culture says, or what our friends say, or what our feelings tell us, but rather by God's standard. True beauty can only be found in Christ. True love can only be found in Christ. True purity, modesty, friendship, you name it, can only be found in Christ.
"Occupations, husbands, children--all these are accessories to life. God is life itself." (Uncompromising, pg 156)
She closes her book with a challenge to be a heart claimed by a radical love. Live passionately for the Cause. Let it change you from the inside out today, and tomorrow, and every day after.
And don't let it just be an emotional passion that will pass, but rather practical, godly, day-to-day living.Read more ›
Farver opens with an acknowledgement that passion is good and hard-wired into our DNA. We are designed to be passionate about a cause. The world dangles all sorts of causes in front of our eyes to lure us away from the one Cause that can deeply satisfy the desires of our hearts. These worldly causes include the desire to be considered beautiful, popular, famous, and loved. The problem, Farver contends, is that all of these causes are fleeting and leave the seeker wholly unsatisfied. Rather, she challenges, we can live for the one Cause that claims our hearts with a radical love and provides a fully satisfying life. This doesn't mean she wants to remain single all of her life but that she is willing to seek a relationship with God and allow Him to prepare her heart for relationship with the man He has chosen for her.
The book closes with a modesty checklist and an unofficial checklist to help young women determine if they are ready for marriage. The author begs, however, that readers don't take either of these resources as the final word on either topic. A study guide is also included.
I enjoyed this book.Read more ›
