    1. 4.5 starsVery good read! Lots of good information, Biblical wisdom, and real, raw, and redeeming testimonies to share. Juli Slattery gets to the heart of the issue: Is Jesus Christ Lord of your life - including your love life your sexuality? Sex and the Single Girl is written in a Bible study format, and I think it would be great to do with a group of close Christian girl friends.I look forward to reading more by Juli Slattery.

    2. If you're looking for a sound Bible study from a trustworthy source that helps women discuss and work through issues relating to sexuality and spirituality in an honest, healthy and authentic way, your search is over. Sex And The Single Girl is an outstanding Bible study that does not shy away from the issues that women in our culture face today, but teaches them how to make good choices when faced with temptation and difficult decisions. This book is structured as a 6-week Bible study with 5 da [...]

    3. This Christian book is designed to be read in daily or weekly increments over 6 weeks, but I read it all in two days! It has reflective questions at the end of each section that can be answered alone or in a group study. I loved that this book is saturated with Scripture! Almost every other page quotes Scripture or refers to a Bible example. The writing is thoughtful, and exhorts the reader to think carefully about God's Word, and to examine our hearts circumspectly. It really puts a spotlight o [...]

    4. I'm so glad I chose this workbook for review! This a 6-week study on a topic Christians tend to shy away from but is in dire need of being addressed. This book was exclusively written for the single girl. Dr. Slattery touches on very important topics about sex that many young girls struggle with: premarital sex, masturbation, pornography, sexual fantasies among others. With much love and patience, Dr. Slattery gently guides the student through misconceptions many girls have about sex. Each week [...]

    5. Marriage and sexuality were always intended to teach us about intimacy with God.-Juli Dr. Slattery I would recommend this book to every girls and women out there. The more I read this the more I realize our definition and perspective of sex have been twisted by the world.There is a big question of why parents and most of christian leaders never explain about sex and sexuality to young people at church. They just simply get “Don’t have sex before marriage” speeches. Other than that all the [...]

    6. I received a complementary copy of this book from . I was hoping to read it to be better-equipped to provide guidance for others I counsel, and to guide myself if I become widowed in the future, but was disappointed. It provides a fundamentalist Christian perspective on sexuality that made me feel excluded. It presumes a familiarity with biblical scripture, and does not copy out all of the verses selected, which would have been useful because my Bible version did not appear to be the same as the [...]

    7. Set up as a six week study, covering five days a week. It's comes across as better suited for the college aged but I found quite a bit useful for all ages. This is a great book for parents to go through with their teenagers. Each days reading is distinctly laid out ending with a reflect and respond section for journaling, reflection and deeper thought or discussion. At the end of each week there is a "Pulling it All Together" section- bringing together the key "truths" from the week as well as a [...]

    8. Juli Slattery's Sex and the Single Girl highlights all the ways in which our sexual choices as human beings are also spiritual choices. While it's written entirely for "the single girl", it's a book that brings together biblical study with reflection exercises -- for six weeks' worth of pastorally sensitive study and reflection. Sex and the Single Girl includes topics like the importance of sexuality, expressing the connection between spirituality and sexuality. There's a rich discussion about G [...]

    9. To be honest, I not yet done completing this study because I am reading it slowly and try to digest all the information! It is so rich in biblical truth on a topic I feel needs more people to speak biblical truth in. Set up as a 6-week study with 5 daily readings, this study provides a thorough background on God and sexuality, as well as applicable truth to apply to your everyday life. As a Christian single the truths give me a why to views on sex, relationships and more. It's a great study to d [...]

    10. I won a copy of this book.This book is not for me. It's just more indoctrination using the bible and God to make us feel bad and guilty. If God made me, he also made my urges. Why should I feel bad for feeling how I do. Week 4 goes into the specifics of sex, like masturbation and oral sex (outside of marriage). Being gay is okay, as long as you don't act on the urges you have (God is just testing you, perhaps, to see if you'll follow the rules?). And don't worry if you don't follow any of these [...]

    11. Oh wonderful devotional, where were you when I was in my teens??? I loved this devotional. It was perfect for what I have gone through and continue to struggle with. Slattery does such a great job connecting our sexuality with our spirituality. Sex is not supposed to be some dirty word that Christians don't talk about. Christians NEED to be talking about it but in the right ways. God created sex so of course it's connected to our spirituality. I would recommend this to all women who struggle wit [...]

    12. I have read countless books on things pertaining to sexuality problems including: lust, porn, masturbation, sex, etc. But this is my favorite book on the topic. Juli Slattery clearly defines terms like sex, sexuality, intimacy (all terms we use interchangeably) and what to do with them. This is my second time going through the book, but I love that it was written to be done in a group with the questions. It really helped my accountability group. Hands down one of my favorite books. I highly reco [...]

    13. I know it’s designed as a weekly study, but I devoured it in a day. I discovered this book when it was recommended by Girl Defined Ministry on YouTube and rushed to read it. It is a beautiful that allows you to understand the plan God has for you. The author does not force you to believe the way she does, but instead challenges you to discover Him on your own. I would recommend this book to any Christian girl who is struggling with the aspect of God’s plan in your life.

    14. Interesting studyI was intrigued by the title so I grabbed this book while it was on sale. I loved reading this the past 6 weeks. I think what I loved most about this was the way she explained how to deal with gray areas. I highly recommend this to anyone who is single and maybe a little confused about what is "okay".

    15. I received a copy of this book from a giveaway. This is a work book for the single Christian girl on the topic of sex. This book takes a personal approach and is easy to read.
