Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a call for all Christian women to examine their personal faith presuppositions, and deliberately choose a life of Biblical “dignity.” Our goal should be to be women known for spiritual depth and Biblical substance. Professor de Rosset and her fellow contributors challenge women not to be frightened to allow “theology [to] inform our choices.” As thinkers and readers, we should never stop wrestling with issues of truth that go way beyond gender. The author touches on making God-choices and being true to ourselves with behavior “driven by truth not desire.”

I love it! I endorse this all inclusive call to make time to ponder, pray, and above all think through to action the challenges contained in this excellent book: the people you lead will thank you for it!

 —Jill Briscoe, LLD, serves at Elmbrook Church in Wisconsin and globally as minister-at-large with her husband, Stuart. She has authored numerous articles and more than fifty books.


Unseduced and Unshaken raises the bar for young Christian women by calling them to embrace the call to love God with all their minds, as well as their hearts, souls, and strength, and to embrace fully his calling on their lives. The world and the church need women like this, and I applaud these authors for sounding a message that counters the dumbing-down messages women are hearing today.

—Carolyn Custis James, Author, Half the Church and Founder of the Synergy Women’s Network, Inc., a national organization for women emerging or engaged in ministry leadership.

Though marketed to young women, Unseduced and Unshaken provides insight to women of all ages - and even men. (After having her for class, my brother says he'll read anything Rosalie de Rosset writes). :) Through her regular interaction with young women at Moody Bible Institute, where she has taught for over four decades, Dr. de Rosset, along with four additional authors, discerns what Christian women need to hear in this present day.

I must confess my general hesitancy to promote any book written for Christian women. I find many to be trite - lacking in theological depth. Or they are filled with cultural (and unbiblical) stereotypes, or the advice is silly and romanticized. But this is a book I want my daughter to read one day. It is filled with biblical and theological truth - and heavily underlined in my personal copy.

The book begins with a discussion of dignity which de Rosset defines as, "a strong, chosen, deliberate way of life, the result of the totality of a person's choices and worldview" (p. 24). A dignity that does not allow one's voice to be silenced. For a woman of dignity knows that "not being able to bring your voice to a relationship means you are not really counted, valued and cannot possibly be truly cared for" (p. 44).

This allows for a unique discussion of submission in Unseduced and Unshaken. A discussion that does not reduce the idea of submission to a list of do's and don'ts. Or a who-makes-the-final-decision conundrum. Instead, Pam Macrae writes in chapter two that, "the matter of godly submission with dignity, which means living in preferential deference to the other, does not eliminate one's voice; it should characterize it" (p. 42).

When I hear the word seduce, I think of a brazen vixen, oblivious to an innocent man's wedding ring. With her long black lashes, polished lips and glistening skin she expertly maneuvers him away from all things chaste and moral. Unseduced, would be that man's extraordinary willpower to resist such advances.

Rosalie De Rosset's book, Unseduced and Unshaken, isn't only about withstanding sexual temptation. The book is about that and so much more. Unseduced and Unshaken explains describes a postmodern culture as a seductress. De Rosset points out the predatory nature of advertising, pornography, peer pressure and other things that particularly young women must be wary to stand firm against.

De Rosset uses classic literature and well known movies to exemplify both desirable and unbecoming character traits. She enforces the need for dignity, modesty, self-confidence and strong, Biblical theology.

One of the most valuable aspects of the book is the extensive list of suggested reading in the appendix. De Rosset lists all of her sources and whets the reader's appetite to know more about each one of them.

The book is easy to read and extremely well written, calling on a vast vocabulary. While the book is directly targeted at young women, De Rosset's points apply to every Christian.

As a father of five daughters, I recommend this book highly. It is not only well-written and precise, it's one of those books that sinks in deeply to your soul and into the marrow. I've been waiting for Dr. DeRosset to write something like this for a LONG time. I hope she writes again very quickly!

Not only is this author a trusted source, she lives what is in this book. She was one of my favorite professors in college, and I have returned often to her class notes as I have mentored young women. Now I will hand them this book, read it along, and give them the notes that I at one time only I had access to. Big thanks to de Rosset for following God and modeling what a Godly women should look like.

This book is a must-read for every woman, not just young women. It gives great direction and advice for all of us, regardless of age. Dignity and respect are almost forgotten terms in today's world. It is beneficial to read about the need to strive for dignity and respect in our everyday relationships. It makes an impact on the rest of your life and the way you live it, for your own self-respect and as a God-pleasing way of life.

I have had the good pleasure of having Dr. de Rosset as a professor. More then any other teacher i have had Dr. de Rosset is by far the most profound and captivating. Not only is this book a source of wisdom (for both men and women) but it comes from a godly source. I encourage everyone to read this book, and challenge themselves to start living with dignity.

This is a wonderful book for late teens to college aged young ladies (and really for any woman). Somehow true womanhood has been washed away in a "soundbite and tweet" culture. This book brings us back to choosing ahead of time how to think and respond to the circumstances of life that every woman faces. At the end of each day too many women lay down their heads on a pillow and rehearse the day with regret. This book will aid you in becoming a woman of choice and character that will allow you to rest rather than regret.
