When Dawn Eden first wrote The Thrill of the Chaste in late 2005, she was a Jewish convert to Protestant Christianity, preparing to make the final leap into Catholicism. Now, Eden has extensively updated The Thrill of the Chaste, sharing how her Catholic faith, the lives and intercession of the saints, and the healing power of the sacraments have led her to find her true identity in Christ. This revised, Catholic version offers spiritual and practical advice for both men and women seeking to live chastely in a world that glorifies sex. While first exploring how childhood wounds influenced her understanding of sexuality, Eden offers readers inspiration by drawing upon the spirituality of healing she expands upon in her other book, My Peace I Give You. Eden offers tips to help readers avoid temptation and live faithfully, including dress modestly, but don't be afraid to feel
good about the way you look; trust that God has a plan for your life and relationships; and make sure your “yes” comes from your heart.
