Book Review: Pure


Inside the Evangelical Movement That Shamed a Generation of Young Women and How I Broke Free

by Linda Kay Klein



Pub Date 04 Sep 2018

I am reviewing Pure through touchstone and Netgalley:

I must say this book leaves me with mixed feelings, though she does bring up good points mainly against the Purity movement which became an entire industry in the 90’s, an industry that came out of the white evangelical Christian Culture, and though agree there were negative ramifications to this movement, I think the idea of abstinence especially in your teen years is a good one, though. She does make a good argument about how the movement often traumatized girls, made them feel bad if they had any kind of slip up.

Sadly during this time a youth pastor was convicted for the Sexual enticement of a twelve year old girl, which caused Klein to question the movement.

I give Pure four out of five stars!

Happy Reading!
