True Love Waits promotes saving sex for marriage after a courtship long enough to get to know your potential partner on all levels of a relationship: intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. The author’s social conservativism is not based on any religious teachings. Rather, it is based on achieving a holistic intimacy with your boyfriend or girlfriend before becoming physically intimate. The book describes the author’s journey from the hippie days of free love to a conservative philosophy of waiting for marriage. The author’s transformation is a direct result of growing up in the 1950s and her teenage years in the late 1960s as well as her raising six children over the course of forty years.

This groundbreaking book breaks with established canons and resists some of the stereotypes of feminist biblical studies. It features a wide range of contributors who showcase new methodological and theoretical movements such as feminist materialisms, intersectionality, postidentitarian "nomadic" politics, gender archaeology, and lived religion, and theories of the human and the posthuman. The Bible and Feminism: Remapping the Field engages a range of social and political issues, including migration and xenophobia, divorce and family law, abortion, "pinkwashing," the neoliberal university, the second amendment, AIDS and sexual trafficking, and the politics of "the veil." Foundational figures in feminist biblical studies work alongside new voices and contributors from a multitude of disciplines in conversations with the Bible that go well beyond the expected canon-within-the-canon assumed to be of interest to feminist biblical scholars. Moving beyond the limits of a text-orientated model of reading, this collection looks at how biblical texts were actualized in the lives of religious revolutionaries, such as Joanna Southcott or Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. It charts the politics of the Pauline veil in the self-understanding of Europe and reads the "genealogical halls" in the book of Chronicles alongside acts of commemoration and forgetting in 9/11 and Tiananmen Square.

Making Chastity Sexy

Even though they are immersed in sex-saturated society, millions of teens are pledging to remain virgins until their wedding night. How are evangelical Christians persuading young people to wait until marriage? Christine J. Gardner looks closely at the language of the chastity movement and discovers a savvy campaign that uses sex to "sell" abstinence. Drawing from interviews with evangelical leaders and teenagers, she examines the strategy to shift from a negative "just say no" approach to a positive one: "just say yes" to great sex within marriage. Making Chastity Sexy sheds new light on an abstinence campaign that has successfully recast a traditionally feminist idea—"my body, my choice"—into a powerful message, but one that Gardner suggests may ultimately reduce evangelicalism’s transformative power. Focusing on the United States, her study also includes a comparative dimension by examining the export of this evangelical agenda to sub-Saharan Africa.

Die US-amerikanische evangelikale Populärkultur der Gegenwart macht Mädchen und Frauen vielfach verlockende Konsum- und Identitätsangebote. Am Beispiel von Keuschheitskultur, christlicher chick und sistah lit, Ratgebern für »gottgefällige« Selbstoptimierung und Aufrufen zum politischen Aktivismus zeigt Monika Sauter: Am Schnittpunkt von Religion, Konsum und Kapitalismus, hegemonialer Familienideologie, konservativer Politik und zivilreligiösem Patriotismus erweisen sich die Affektökonomien der Konstruktionen von Weiblichkeit als kulturell sehr wirkmächtig.
