    1. Okay Mrs. Gresh. Okay. You know, if it weren't for the fact that I know some of your "information" in your book is either false or wildly misconstrued, you may have swayed me. But that whole thing about Christian teens in Europe group dating to keep off each otheryou do realize that there is way more teen sex in Europe than here, right? The difference is they don't have people like you mucking up their education and stopping them from learning about safe sex. Also, you're whole "no meditation" t [...]

    2. When I first received this book, my first reaction was one of excitement. (I LOVE NEW BOOKS!) My second reaction was “Oh snap! Now everyone is going to know I read this!” But I am reviewing it nonetheless and I hope you stick around to hear what I have to say about this book.Back in 2008 I went to one of Dannah Gresh’s Pure Freedom events and ever since then, when I would hear the word “yada” my mind would instantly take me back to that event where I learned the true meaning of the wor [...]

    3. This one word is the premise for “What are You Waiting For? The One Thing No one Ever Tells You About Sex,” written by Dannah Gresh. Yada is a Hebrew word that means “to be known, to be deeply respected,” and is the word used when talking about a husband and wife “laying” with each other. It is found more than 900 times in the Bible, and aside from marital relations, it is most commonly found in verses that talk about being known by God. Gresh strives to show us that sex isn’t just [...]

    4. Excellent read on how and WHY to keep your virginity until marriage. Great read - and is great for boys, too.

    5. This book blew me away! Dannah Gresh answered every question I had about being a Christian young lady seeking purity. I will be recommending this book to ALL of my friends. Truly a wonderful, Christ-centered book that will JURISTICALLY change your view of sex and God's true intent! If the Lord blesses me with a daughter in my future, this will be a must read for her!

    6. I am currently reading, What are you waiting for by Dannah Gresh I read one of her other books, prior to this and I loved it. I chose the book because it focuses on celibacy, purity, and God's design for sex. I bought the book from last week (paperback). The paperback was on sale and cheaper than the Kindle (way cheaper 4.99). The price is back to 8.98 now. Kindle is 7.99.The book is not for the meek, the shy, the closed minded. Gresh talks openly about sex and sex-related issues. Gresh discuss [...]

    7. Another book I picked up for my youth girls that, when reading, I just kept thinking “Man I wish I had somebody tell me the stuff when I was a teenager!” It may have saved me from so many mistakes and misunderstandings. Growing up I knew what the rules said about having sex. And I was a rule follower, so I didn’t. But no one ever really talked to me about the WHY God wants us to waite beauty of doing things his way. This book does a great job of Hoping girls understand why God’s plan is [...]

    8. Interesting take on the topic of sex and the importance of waiting until marriage to have sex. Though sometimes presented like an infomercial (especially in the beginning), I believe there’s a lot of truth in this book and I would love for my future teenage daughter (whenever the Lord blesses me with her) to read this. I believe this book can be motivational and encouraging for women who wish to live a life of purity and honor God with their bodies. While it’s targeted to younger believers, [...]

    9. So beautifulI took my time to careful imbibe and ingest the wonderful truths in this book.My heart has been so much convicted by the rare truths found in this book. I am changed forever.This book is about pursuing purity,intimacy with God and more. It's for girls of all ages,even guys too can benefit a lot from this book.I just discovered Dannah a few months ago through her "get lost" devotional on the you version bible app,and,now,am so glad I did find her.She has lots of humor too,so you won't [...]

    10. Dana gives real, practical and honest talk about God's word and sex. She helps girls understand the value of the Truth of God's word on their Spirit. She explains how God designed our brains and the implications on our sexuality. Must read for high school and college age women and great tool for mentors and mothers.

    11. Growing up in church, our "Christian Sex Education" was more like "Sex Mis-Information". While I appreciate what the adults were attempting to do, I don't condone their methods of "keeping us pure" by frightening us with stories of those infected with HIV, abortions, and teen pregnancy. Fear only works for so long. I stayed in the teen group a little longer than most, and in the early 1990s I can remember all of the youth group being herded into the basement of the church. The church's TV and VC [...]

    12. One evening a few months ago, I asked the Lord a very specific question that had been gnawing at my soul for a quite a while. The next day, a Facebook friend posted a link toWhat Are You Waiting For?While not exactly question I was seeking, it was close enough that this seemed like a divine book recommendation.Author Dannah Gresh opens with the warning that this book is “gritty” and if you’re the kind of girl who likes church more than the real world, you shouldn’t read it. She then proc [...]

    13. I really liked this book. It was practical and down to earth and gave real answers from Scripture, from research (but not in a dry, research-y way), and from lots of interviews and personal experiences. I appreciated that it gave real answers to difficult questions. Much as I am a fan of Lauren Winner and her book Real Sex, I think this one is better.The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that Gresh, like other authors I've read, feels the need to validate marriage and family over femini [...]

    14. Oh. My. Word. Such an incredible book. So far I’m about three fourths of the way through it and let me just say, it’s such an excellent tool for sexual purity. It’s written towards a female audience, but I think it would be extremely beneficial for guys to read as well. She goes back to the greek root words used in the Bible to show the true meaning and intention of sex, and how God views it. She also talks about the science of sex and how it affects your brain. It’s probably the best bo [...]

    15. Book Review: What Are You Waiting For?Author: Dannah GreshWhat does God think about sex and all related topics? We don’t have to search far to find the answer to that question. Ms. Gresh has done all the work for us in her inciteful, spiritual filled book. She doesn’t shy away from any of the controversial questions of our time, that turn out to be questions for all time.This book is recommended for single women and the information definately applies to them, but even as a long married woman [...]

    16. This is a great book for all women and young ladies. In the introduction the author states that the book is more straight forward than anything that she has written in the past. As always this author's heart for young girls is evident in her pursuit to rightly divide the word of God. I believe this book would be good for any woman: married, single, dating. In reading it the student is immersed in the truth of what God intended sex to be all about. It systematically shatters the worlds theories o [...]

    17. This book was awesome. I have read most of her books, but the honesty and vulnerability of this one really made it special. Dannah is so good at using her own personal stories plus the truth of God's word to answer really tough questions. Every page was so infused with truth, but she was also so gentle in dealing with these hard heart issues. I would recommend this to any girl who is old enough to be thinking about relationships and sex really, but it is particularly helpful if you have struggle [...]

    18. In What Are You Waiting For?, Dannah Gresh is very frank and to the point. While it may be off-putting to some, I found that it suited the subject matter covered - which included several real issues that many young Christian women struggle with today (but may not feel comfortable discussing) and what God's Word has to say about them.I especially like that she does not just give you advice so you can quietly "fix the problem yourself", but rather strongly encourages you to seek out others to help [...]

    19. Dannah Gresh has done it again. Unafraid to answer all the tough questions, she has answered some of the toughest that young girls will ask in the pages of this book. Her writing style was warm and non-judgemental. She told the truth in a way that will change young girl's lives, no matter their struggle. Dannah is brave, honest and her approach to this topic, I felt, was perfect. She didn't water down the truth, nor did she go too far with it. She is an amazing Christian author whom I hope will [...]

    20. a very candid, straight-to-the-point and realistic read. indeed its the one thing no one ever tells us about sex and its the most important thing one has to know about this subject. it is biblical but not in an ancient way but its message is very practical and timely. thank you Dannah for following through and finishing this book for us. highly recommended for all, teenage girls and boys alike.

    21. Amazing! Dannah Gresh writes about how having a godly view of sex is more about having a right relationship with God than just waiting. She emphasizes the fact that God created sex to glorify Himself, draw people closer to Him, and provide a picture of His love for us. An amazing book that I recommend to everyone--married, single, divorced . . . everyone.

    22. This book will really and truly blow your mind. If you’ve struggled with understanding sexual purity and the hold it’s had on your life and how you can break free, you need to read this. I truly believe all ladies need a deeper understanding on what God thinks about sex. This book is deep and it doesn’t sugarcoat anything!

    23. Gresh's discussion on Hebrew tradition and vocabulary is enlightening. I agree with another user's comments, however, that she advocates a very "romantic comedy" view of romance. A masterpiece it is not, but I did learn a lot of wonderful information from it.

    24. This was a really good read. It was well-argued and well-written. The stuff she's saying isn't exactly the easiest thing to hear, but sometimes that means it's what we need to hear the most. Overall I thought this one left my head in a really good space and gave me plenty to ponder.

    25. Don't be intimidated by the subtitle-this book is phenomenal! It answers some tough questions about sexuality in today's world, and helps you better understand the God-given purpose of sex. Worth the read if you are in your late teens or older.

    26. An excellent resource for talking to teen girls about sexual issues. I love Dannah Gresh and her openness, honesty, and good Biblical research. A must for your library if you're working with teens.

    27. Information to share with teens hat I mentor, but also eye opening insight into to Hebrew word of "know" in the bible. Gives a deeper meaning and understanding to the intent of sex.
