Item description for Secret Keeper: The Delicate Power of Modesty (Secret Keeper Girl) by Dannah Gresh...
Overview At a time when many girls and young women today cannot even define the word modesty, Gresh teaches them that modesty not only issues a challenge for one man to romantically earn your virtue, but it also expresses your love for and obedience to God.
With Victoria's Secret now targeting 18-24 year-olds with the PINK line, and Abercrombie & Fitch successfully selling clothing through a catalog available only to those 18 and over, the need for a clear voice on modesty has never been greater. In this reformatted edition of Dannah Gresh's bestselling book on modesty, teen and twenty-something young women are given actual pictures and examples of modern clothing-a modesty fashion show, of sorts. Dannah's approach to explaining the critical nature of modest is both cool and relevantThe photos will also show the girls how to take the 'Truth or Bare Fashion Tests.' In essence, this will provide concrete, 'how-to' modest dressing skills.Brand new products to this line are the Secret Keeper Devos and Power Pak!

She is direct, reasonable, mature, and friendly. It is a smart girl's guide to thinking through the decisions many girls allow the crowd to make for them.
Awesome book that was truly needed! Jul 20, 2006
I truly do love this book. I saw it on the internet and ordered it, and what a blessing!! Modesty in our day in age is so rare now--even among Christians. This book was so needed, and wonderfully written. It talks not only about "dressing" modestly, but about modesty of the heart, and much more. It even showed the guy's perspective when we do dress immodestly--which really showed me A LOT! I would have not known, and it's so wonderful that Dannah wrote about it. We females need to realize what we do to the men around us when we dress immodestly. Especially Christian men. We think it looks good, but we forget about the men around us and the struggles going on in their minds. What an eye opener!
It not only talks about that dressing modestly is because God tells us to and it pleases Him when we do, but she explains that the Bible tells us that we are only to "intoxicate" one man with our beauty and the deepest secrets of our bodies. And when we dress immodestly, we allow "many" men to lust after us, which is sin.
There's much more I could say about this book, it is so wonderful! I have found myself reading it over and over again. It is easy to read, yet packed with tons of great info that all Christian and non-Christian females need to hear.
Every female should read this book!
Empowering women Nov 22, 2005
I bought this book as a gift, but when I began flipping through it, I quickly became skeptical. I am in full support of encouraging young women to respect themselves. I desire to see young women today accept themselves and embrace their power. However, teaching young girls that their purpose in life is to find one man to love and care for, is a big step backwards. I also firmly believe there is no excuse for a man stalking or sexually harassing a girl. The suggestion that these things happen because the girl did not pray while getting dressed that day, or the idea that by saying a prayer we can know for certain what God intended in the grey issues in the Bible is outrageous. If you are looking for a book that will encourage intellectual thinking, spiritual growth, independant decisions and confidence in a young woman's life - this is NOT the book.
Great for teens! Nov 15, 2005
This book is really good. A lot of times books that talk about modesty overlook the heart issue completely. There is so much more to modesty than what you wear. This book does a good job at bringing that out.
It also has a positive tone, which is very rare as well. I like that it is realistic and offers practical solutions. For example getting guys undershirts. It is true that it's hard to find shirts that are long enough and this is a practical solution. Something that girls feel like they can actually do. This is a great book!
Good when compared to the world's standards, but falls short of God's Nov 4, 2005
When you compare secret keeper's standard of modesty to the world's standards, it sounds pretty good. But just because a lady dresses "better" than the world's standards doesn't mean her clothes are modest. (The other reviewer was right, the picture on the back would probably not be considered modest because it draws men's eyes away from her face to her legs.)
You see, the real standard is God's--does what I wear cause my brother in Christ to stumble? (Luke 17:2) If it does, it isn't modest. Period. The author clearly underestimates what can cause her brother's in Christ to stumble.
Basically, she improves on what the world offers to Christian young ladies and that's why I gave her 2 stars, but the standard she presents in the book falls short of God's.
