Reviews - What do customers think about Young Lady's Guide : To the Harmonious Development of Christian Character?

A Very Practical and Helpful Guide for Christian Ladies in Various Areas of Her Life  Apr 7, 2007
Note: To avoid purchasing double copies, this work is actually also available under a different title A Practical Directory for Young Christian Females by the same author. But they both essentially have the same content, though. And for those who may be interested in the paperback edition of this work, its ISBN # is 1932474293.

This 19th century classic has become one of my favorite books. It was originally written as a series of letters from an older brother (the author) to his younger sister, so there is much sincerity in the advice contained in the writings. Though written in 1800's, the wisdom and message contained in this work are timeless and as relevant for Christian ladies today as they were when originally published. It is primarily addressed toward young unmarried ladies, but there's much wisdom that can be gleaned by the other ladies as well. The author points ladies toward developing a virtuous character and aids the reader in cultivating intellectual, social, moral, and religious maturity. To that end, he provides practical hints and directions for them to apply over many various areas of her life.

Some of these areas covered include: the importance and cultivation of sound doctrine, charity, harmony of Christian character, reading and studying of the Bible, prayer, overcoming temptation, self-denial, conduct and attitude in public worship, meditation, bodily health, mental cultivation and reading (I truly love the suggestions in this chapter), improvement of time, Christian activity and duties, dress, social and relative duties (to church, family, friends, etc.), marriage (characteristics to consider in a potential spouse), submission and dependence and contentment, and self-examination. There is also an appendix that lists recommended books for different subjects.

One word to describe this book would be: Practical. It not only emphasizes the importance of godly Christian character, but provides so much practical directions and hints toward the harmonious development of Christian character. The table of contents itself took several pages because it lists an outline of sub-headings under each chapter to allow a quick reference for different topics. It makes such an extremely helpful and descriptive directory.
