Lauren Winner gets The Thrill

"Popular blogger and columnist Dawn Eden has written a refreshing call to chastity. ... [O]ne of Eden's most important decisions in this book is to draw upon Pope John Paul II's theology of the body, stressing the unfashionable notion that the body has a spiritual purpose. Eden underscores that chastity is a lifelong discipline — not just a tough thing that single Christians have to deal with, but also a call to embodied holiness in controlling one's sexual appetite that every Christian must submit to."
