Girls Gone Wise book review
“Girls Gone Wild” was a lot better than I anticipated. I suppose you could say I judged a book by its cover, but this time I’m glad I read it. Mary Kassian addresses the Proverbs 7 woman, the “Girl-gone-wild”, and compares her characteristics to a “Girl-gone-wise”.
Her book lists 20 different points of contrasts, including heart, attitude, appearance, roles, boundaries, speech, and teachability, with Scriptures from Proverbs that correspond with each. She addresses many hot topics of today, like modesty, purity, and biblical femininity, handling each well with Scripture and biblical wisdom.
Her book isn’t about teaching young girls to remain “technical virgins” while still being popular or still keeping up with the world’s standards without totally jumping off the cliff. No, her book is about being innocent of evil, clinging to what is good, forsaking the things of the world, and being willing to look, act, talk and think different than the girl-gone-wild.
And this advice isn’t just for the unmarried, but just as applicable for married women who still need to battle these issues and remain loyal to their husband and a pure bride of Christ.
This is a great book for any woman at any stage in her life, whether she’s struggling with any of these in particular, or if she just needs a reaffirming push in the right direction.
