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!

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.

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).Read more ›
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.
