Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Have you ever given your heart to someone who didn't love you back?

Do you feel like you've experienced heartache over and over again?

If you are emotionally attached to someone, it's easy to cross the line and become emotionally intimate. Then if the relationship doesn't work out, you're left with scars on your heart.

The church teaches us the importance of physical purity; but it teaches little about emotional purity. Christian singles often wear their hearts on their sleeves, which can lead to intense, emotionally intimate, male-female friendships with no commitment to pursuing marriage. People may have had several of these friendships and still consider themselves pure, but in reality they have given away pieces of their hearts that should be reserved for their future spouses. Emotional Purity will show you how to define and set boundaries in your relationships to avoid making the same mistakes. Learn how to guard your heart and keep it emotionally pure.

Using fictional and real-life examples along with sound biblical advice, author Heather Arnel Paulsen outlines the pitfalls of undefined relationships and presents guidelines for living an emotionally pure life.

Synopsis:

Emotional purity involves protecting your heart from becoming too intimate with someone of the opposite sex so you don't have to suffer through emotional damage over and over again.

Synopsis:

Emotional Purity takes a look at the friendships and relationships between single men and women and the lack of emotional boundaries that can lead to heartache. Emotional purity means not giving away your heart without a commitment. Author Heather Arnel Paulsen uses the model of God’ s relationship with us to show that we cannot have an intimate relationship with God until we have committed our lives to him. Likewise, we should not have an emotionally intimate relationship with the opposite sex outside of marriage. It will only lead to excess baggage that we take with us into future relationships.

God wants us to be emotionally and physically pure. Using fictional and real-life examples along with sound biblical advice, Paulsen outlines the pitfalls of undefined relationships and presents guidelines for living an emotionally pure life.
