Re: Not So Free After All

Talk about timing! Just today I got an e-mail newsletter from Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse with some book recommendations for this year's gift-giving, many of which cover the very subject under discussion here.

Along with Unprotected, which Morse calls "a terrific, eye-opening look at the real costs of the sexual revolution on campus," there's also For Young Women Only, written, just as the title states, directly to Christian teenage girls. Morse says, "A friend gave me this book for my daughter, and I learned a lot from it. Warmly recommended."

Morse also recommends her own book, Smart Sex: Finding Life-Long Love in a Hook-Up World, and I join her in that recommendation. It's one of the best books I've ever read on "the choice between life-long married love and casual sex." As Morse writes, it's a great explanation of why "what you do matters to the whole society and not just to yourself!"

Finally, a recommendation of my own: the recent release You, Me and Who?: Five-Minute Devotionals for You and Your Date by Emily Parke Chase. Emily and her merry band of undergraduates (of whom I used to be one) have been making pro-abstinence presentations in high schools, junior high schools, and church youth groups for many years. Emily knows her subject and she knows kids, and she's helped many of them make wise decisions and see things in a way they never have before.

Thanks to Dr. Morse for her recommendations, and if you're interested in signing up for her newsletter, you can do so at her website.
