Man did I open a can of worms! CHRISTIAN MODESTY- the Public Undressing of America by Jeff Pollard is exactly what this advertises. I purchased this ebook because I am very much interested in dressing modestly and was wondering why the church does not promote it.
“How many of today’s preachers were “raised on TV”? Pinpoint accuracy might be difficult, but one thing is certain: it is quite difficult to fine one that has not been influenced by Hollywood, whether he grew up with a TV or not? [Chapter VII The Impact of Meida, paragraph 1]
The above statement is found midway in the book, the author actually takes the reader from Genesis where God clothed the man and woman to what we see today. I found the sentences I quoted intriguing because it states an obvious concept: Not dressing modestly is normal.
Without rambling on and on and quoting the entire book to you I can summarize what I discovered by simply saying the way women and men dressed today was presented in such a manor that most Believers do not realize far from Genesis they have strayed.
One of the things the author pointed out: Women would not think it appropriate to go outside in their bra and panties yet they will walk around in a thong bikini; men are no different.
I recommend this book to everyone particularly Christians and church leaders in particular. My only regret is I purchased an ebook and not a print book.
