What are you waiting for? Everything! Author Dannah Gresh is very straight forward about sex in her book "What are you waiting for? The one thing no one ever tells you about sex". This is definitely not a book for a delicate, light conversation on the topic. In fact, Gresh speaks very candidly about sex and what the Bible has to say about it. Topics include homosexuality, pornography, intimacy, romance, premarital sex and more.
I feel she definitely did her research; she includes Bible verses, scientific facts, research and studies, and real life experiences on this typically taboo subject. Whether you have had pure or impure relationships you can benefit from the biblically sound advice of this book.
On a negative note, I felt Gresh could have been a little more discreet with some her comments. I think her goal was to add some humor to the context, but I felt it inappropriate and unneeded. I definitely would not recommend this for high school grades; unless the reader has already experienced an unbiblically pure past.
