There were some bits in here that I really did like, but so many more that I didn't.

John and Stasi say that they understand women and their personalities run the gamut, and that they tried avoiding stereotypes. However, I got the distinct impression that a "real" woman would be an E*F* Myers Briggs-type. (I'm an ISTJ, so naturally, I balk at that.) I constantly felt that they were playing to a woman's emotions.

They were so determined to prove that women are defined by their beauty that they seemed to almost demonize efficiency and task-orientedness - two things that are central to my personality; so I walked away feeling vastly misunderstood and like my strengths are still unappreciated. Now, I don't disagree with the fact that beauty (inward and outward) is a defining quality of women, but I believe that a woman can embrace her God-given strengths (even efficiency and task-orientedness!) in a way that exhibits beauty.

A huge concern for me while reading the book is the way that they refer to the reader as the Bride of Christ. This is repeated over and over again, and I find it rather dangerous. Never in the Bible is a woman (or a man) called the Bride of Christ – the Church, as a whole, is the Bride of Christ. We cannot each be the Bride individually.

What else?

•The authors kept comparing a woman's life to the romances found in books and movies like The Titanic, Braveheart, The Last of the Mohicans, and The Lord of the Rings. Over and over and over, the same references were made. I sort of wonder if they realized that those are all fiction?
•They mentioned that they "didn't have the time" to go into certain biblical accounts of women. But they spent so much time on fictional characters (see point above)! Gah!
•John and Stasi didn't always differentiate who was speaking when, or they would wait too far into a passage to clue the reader in. Frustrating!
•Several times, John quoted himself from the book he wrote for men, Wild at Heart. I just think it's weird to quote yourself.

Two quotes that I did like:

"What would it be like to experience for yourself that the truest thing about [God's] heart toward yours is not disappointment or disapproval but deep, fiery, passionate love?" -p. 113

"Unveiling beauty is our greatest expression of love, because it is what the world most needs from us. When we choose not to hide, when we choose to offer our hearts, we are choosing to love.... Our focus shifts from self-protection to the hearts of others. We offer Beauty so that their hearts might come alive, be healed, know God. That is love." -p. 147
