What Is He Thinking?? Book Review and Giveaway

*****This giveaway has ended*****

      In the past, I only knew of Rebecca St. James as a singer, even though she has written multiple books. I admire the way she is known for taking a stand for abstinence.  She even has a song called, Wait For Me that was written to her future husband (She actually just got married this past spring, but wrote the song not knowing who her husband might be.)  I was excited to see what she had to say in her newest book, What Is He Thinking??

Here is a description:

In WHAT IS HE THINKING??,  Rebecca interviews a range of men from high-profile types to the guys next door, men that every woman can relate to.  Although the interviews focus on single guys ages 20-35, Rebecca also includes words of wisdom from older mentors she respects who have been successfully married for years, people like her dad, life coach, and pastor.

The men share their thoughts on topics like how women can respect themselves and the men in their lives, modesty, purity, taking it slow, friendship, letting guys lead, and more.  The book gives them the floor to say what they would really like women to know.

The men respond candidly to questions such as:
*What is the most attractive quality to you in a woman?
*Is modesty truly attractive?
*Is neediness a turn-off?
*What do you find beautiful?
*How can we be dependent on God for our identity, not on you?
*How can we help you with boundaries physically?

Rebecca also discusses her own dating life, speaking openly about the single life, her struggle with loneliness, and her hope for the future.  She challenges women to see the men in their lives as brothers in Christ and to trust God with their dating lives.

     I liked that the book shared viewpoints from many different men from different backgrounds and that Rebecca also shares some of her experiences in the book.  The other thing I really like was at the end of each chapter there was a short section called "A Few Takeaways For You and Me."  I liked the chapter summed up and important points highlighted.

I think this is a great book for girls in their late teens or early twenties.
