In Sex and the City Uncovered: Exposing the Emptiness and Healing the Hurt author Marian Jordan uses the popular television series “Sex in the City” as a reference point for some of the issues faced by single (and married) young women in today’s culture.
In the book, she discusses the ways that many young women seek to find their self-worth in relationships, careers, money, clothing, appearance, alcohol, sex – and helps them come to the conclusion that none of these things will bring the lasting happiness and joy that they seek. Only a relationship with Jesus Christ can fill the emptiness in their hearts.
Founder of Redeemed Girl Ministries, Marian knows first-hand that this kind of lifestyle does not lead to true happiness because she tried living that way herself.
I would recommend this book as a good resource for those seeking to minister to young adult women today, as well as a resource for those who find themselves trapped in a life that seeks to find approval from the world.
