Item description for Prodigal Daughter by Lawrence Gnass...
"America's greatest asset is the moral superiority of its women," wrote French scholar Alexis de Tocqueville in the early nineteenth century. But how would he view the modern woman? For instance, the surly teenager obsessed with boyfriends. Or the arrogant know-it-all with no respect for elders. The scantily clad one who continually pierces and tattoos her body. Or, perhaps the career obsessed woman who considers motherhood a position for the incompetent. Would he consider the state of women today progress? America's women have become prodigals, lost and confused, and our nation's men seem befuddled as to how to help. Sin beckons from every corner, reaching out to destroy the lives of our precious daughters. Schools and many churches contribute to the problem instead of providing the defenses we expect of them. Can de Tocqueville's morally superior woman be resurrected? What worked for women two hundred years ago can still work today, but only if we heed God's timeless instruction. It starts with taking the counsel of the Lord seriously again. A lukewarm effort will not suffice. Change will not happen overnight. The message of Prodigal Daughter must pass from fathers to their children. Only then will we defeat the quagmire that engulfs our female children and help them find their way home. This book examines our nation's moral roots and the downward spiral to the current crisis.
