No More Christian Nice Girl
When just being good nice-instead of good- hurts you, your family, and your friends
by Paul Coughlin & Jennifer D. Degler, PHD
No More Christian Nice Girl is about how Christian women fall into traps of niceness instead of goodness. The book explores the ways God has called us to be His good Christian women. It is written in a way that is easy to read and has a story running through the book demonstrating the way a nice girl lives and how she changes, it is a good way to apply what the authors are writing about to a real life scenario.
Something about No More Christian Nice Girl just didn't sit perfectly. I did enjoy it and think there are many valid points in the book. I know what it is, it is that I just don't want someone to read this book and come away with an attitude of harshness. I really did enjoy the fact that false niceness is a sin and Jesus wasn't always a "nice guy". There are times in our lives when we have to stand up and do the right thing, standing for what is good. I do not think I am a "Christian Nice Girl", but I do hope I am kind and balance out truth in love. I do recommend this book for women, especially if they feel caught in a facade of being a "nice Christian girl" and really just living a life of self-protection.
I was provided a free copy of this book from Bethany House for the purposes of review, the opinions expressed are my own.
