Unseduced and Unshaken
We can’t afford to live casually, haphazardly.
Our lives press on at a breakneck pace. So much so that it becomes difficult to even react well-never mind proactively seeking out responsible – conscious choices. Unseduced and Unshaken is that rare resource with a collective eye on the past and a keen grasp of where we need to go.
Written for this next generation of Christian women-who are now making so many critical life-choices-these words deal truthfully on today’s shaky ground of personal responsibility.
Understanding life with a God-centered point-of-view includes thinking carefully about what we women do with our education, our spiritual existence, our leisure, and the importance we place on our intellect, and our bodies. Our choices are physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual. We must think wisely about them. We must remain unseduced and unshaken.
Praise for Unseduced and Unshaken
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!

More praise for Unseduced and Unshaken
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.
