Comments The Thrill of the Chaste: Finding Fulfillment While Keeping Your Clothes On

  1. As much as I was looking forward to reading a discussion of chastity for grownups, as this book was touted in a PW review, I found two of the basic premises of this book to be fundamentally unfounded and strangely naive , leaving me disappointed.Firstly Eden contrasts promiscuity, founded on a faith in one s unproven partners, vs chastity, founded on a faith that God, as you pursue a closer walk with Him, will lead you to a loving husband Um, no God has not promised anyone a marriage partner So [...]


  2. I am completely blown away by this fabulously inspirational book Without being preachy or stuffy , Dawn Eden has laid out a book full of fabulous advice and insight on relationships and chastity that is than useful in today s world This was the right book at the right time, and I would recommend it to anyone


  3. First of all, Dawn Eden s got some balls for writing this book I don t know, man, but if I were a journalist in New York City that used to sleep around and then I became a Christian, I don t think I would be brave enough to write such a transparent book about chastity with such a personal look at all of my past failed relationships and one night stands Living chastely until marriage, like my fiance and I are doing, is something that is so scoffed at in our culture that I don t even usually talk [...]


  4. First edition, 2007.Quite good in some ways It is very good on the need for control of our desires The emphasis is quite obviously on sexual desire and the need for the virtue by which we exercise control of that desire She was a convert to Protestant Christianity, on the way the Catholic Christian faith, when she wrote the 1st edition in 2006.There is a strange emphasis which I cannot figure out on looking for a husband which seemed too much I have asked for the Catholic edition which came out [...]


  5. I really loved this book about chastity The author had a mix of personal storytelling and also insight about God s plan for sex and sexuality Dawn Eden tells the story of how she went from a lifestyle of promiscuity, using others for immediate gratification, to living out a chaste lifestyle in pursuit of something fuller She was incredibly brave to write this book and I m so happy I read it.


  6. As delightful and real to read as she is in person Very real and honest look at relationships and the significance of giving yourself.


  7. Candid and inspiring guide of a kind of how to value and to live chastity.This book is updated version of the original publication 2006, when Dawn Eden was a convert to Christianity Protestant Since then she walked quite a way she has become Catholic and even made vows to live as a celibate as a vocation.So this book is a Catholic version of the original book.The book is refreshingly honest and candid even intellectually honest, which might be a rare nowadays Dawn, a survivor of the sexual abuse [...]


  8. I ve always thought that was the best title imaginable for a book on the pure of heart And now Dawn Eden s early book, written while she was on her way to becoming a Catholic, has been issued in an updated and revised Catholic edition A Twitter conversation with Eden led to my receiving a review copy which I read precisely as a most unchaste film was breaking box office records all across America.I was expecting something a bit targeted a bit on the relationships which would seem to be the onl [...]


  9. Unlike many chastity books that tend to recycle the same St Augustine and Theology of the Body quotes, Dawn offers a fresh take on Church teachings supported by anecdotes and insights from early Church fathers and saints Chastity seems to always be traced back to St John Paul II but the Thrill of the Chaste argues just the opposite chastity has long been a virtue championed throughout Church history, and the treasury of the Church continues to provide insightful and theological truths for the mo [...]


  10. I gave it 3 out of 5, but hovered over 4 I so very nearly really liked it.From the get go, I loved Eden s style and humour and passion and earthiness as she writes about her experiences of breaking away from the shallowness of the Sex and the City culture.What a relief to me on my own similar journey to find an author I can really connect with on the basis that they write from the position of someone who, like me, has actually experienced that lifestyle and it left them wanting Not some fuddy du [...]


  11. Up until page 89, I really wasn t having any issue with what Dawn had written Yes, she does seem to be writing to an audience specifically consisting of females who have every intention of one day becoming married which is a criteria that I fit into , as she often refers back to waiting on God and gives real life examples of how sometimes she we become impatient with God and therefore try to speed up the process by doing our own searching and pursuing I get it I ve totally been in that situation [...]


  12. Finally, a book that gets it This book was amazingly inspirational It talks about sex and relationships from one of the most real perspectives I have ever heardThe author was at one time a typical New Yorker, engaging in both casual and committed sexual relationships However, as she put it, it got her no closer to finding a husband In fact, it left her alone than ever before She makes one of the most poignant remarks that when women go from man to man, you aren t open as the female sexual revol [...]


  13. I found myself of two minds while reading this book The first were those moments when I had to stop, reread a sentence, and wanted to look up at Dawn and say, what This is a compliment within a complaint, because while I didn t always fully understand Dawn at times, she writes in such an easy, approachable style that it really did feel like a conversation.The other side of my mind stands up, applauds her, and gives her a big hug Who is saying what Dawn is saying She isn t just a guinea pig for s [...]


  14. 3.5 stars I found her views refreshing, providing a whole new way of looking at sexuality But she was a bit radical She says that sexual liberation is actually like a prison Which I can kind of understand, especially since she talks about obsessions with sex, and describes her own experiences of having sex to avoid loneliness But for people who have premarital sex in committed relationships, or for people who have casual sex not because of loneliness they must exist , I don t think it s necessar [...]


  15. This is the second book I ve read recently to help with a girls Bible study I am leading on preserving your sexual purity the other being Preparing Your Daughter for Every Woman s Battle These 2 books were certainly directed at different audiences, with this one directed toward adult women That being said, I must admit that I wasn t ready for the bluntness with which the author speaks about sexual topics, particularly in her past relationships Although she s never really explicit, it would still [...]


  16. I heartily recommend this book Dawn Eden writes with verve of her own life, and her decision when about 30, to live a chaste life, and exactly how that has helped her Truly, an examined life Now that I ve finished it, I will add that I wish I had read it when I was a young woman To be honest, I don t know that I would have been able to relate to the amount of scripture quotes which are liberally sprinkled throughout, but Dawn s honest assessment of what exactly, in terms of behavior, will lead t [...]


  17. While I enjoyed reading the perspective of a woman who flip flopped her position on sexuality after her conversion to Christianity, this book read like a memoir than the trove of practical advice I was hoping to find I appreciate the author s transparency with her own struggles, but in some ways the constant stories of her own past made it hard for me to translate them into practical usage for my life today While there are definitely some valuable gems tucked within these pages, this book was n [...]


  18. Practical advice for the practice of chastity not abstinence in a world that has nothing positive to say about such a practice I would recommend it for religious folks only the staunchly secular probably wouldn t be open to these ideas I recommend this to all single Christian especially Catholic women looking to take Thou shalt not commit adultery seriously It s written by a woman who has been there and done that and her advice is sound and down to earth A good read for men, too, in my opinion.


  19. I found the book interesting It was suggested awhile back at church and I was curious enough to read I find the author incredibly brave for using her own personal experiences to get her point across, I also agree with the fact that we live in a world of consumers People expecting things to come to them instead of working hard to get them Also we live in a society that has strayed from traditional values to ones that are morally casual I think this would be a good book to recommend to younger gen [...]


  20. This book was so beautiful, full of truth, and theologically rich I was blown away and inspired by insight after insight I was really impressed with the level of discourse within the book, which I found to be both accessible and deeply enriching, and with Eden s courage in writing it and sharing from her experience I would recommend this to anyone, but especially to young women growing up in our society, left broken in the wake of the sexual revolution There is hope for healing


  21. I appreciated the honesty of this book Living chastely in today s world is hard, and the author tells it like it is She lived a somewhat promiscuous lifestyle, before her conversion to Christianity She talks plainly about the difficulty of giving up sex and her reasons for doing so, as well as her understanding of Christian doctrine related to sex and marriage Good stuff


  22. This was a very interesting book and not at all what I expected it to be The author has a great way of conveying exactly what she is trying to say and getting her point across I never expected the book to have humor in it but it legitimately had me laughing It s nice to read about different opinions and not just the same old opinion of society, I really enjoyed reading this book.


  23. Priest at school asked me to read this to see if it s worth recommending to our female students Not very impressed yetybe the worst book I ve ever read Incredibly over simplified and stereotypical view of men, people of faith, and those that already desire to live a chaste lifestyle Not to mention poorly written DO NOT RECOMMEND no stars.


  24. I loved this book The author had a sense of humor and was able to relay Church teaching in an easily accessible manner This book leaves you with a sense of God s love for us and His hopes for us in the fulfillment of our desires.


  25. If you re disillusioned with the popular culture s flow chart of how to find the perfect mate, this book will give you an alternative Dawn Eden is not afraid to share real life lessons that she s learned and does so in a humorous way despite the serious topic.


  26. The biblical insight and encouragement was very insightful But it was written as a personal memoir than giving advice onto the lifestyle.



  27. For some reason I couldn t put this book down I have my qualms with it yet it was a fantastic insightful read but not for those who have serious problems with severly Catholic stand points.
