Honor the King with your life. Swear allegiance to Him and to Him only, serve the King in truth, justice, and honor. Offer compassion to the weak, the destitute, the widowed, and the poor. Live for the King serve others without cause for personal gain. Never adandon a fellow Knight in battle or in peril. Equip, train, and prepare for battle against the forces of the Dark Knight. Serve the King and faint not in the day of battle. Use not the sword for personal gain, but rather to execute justice and the will of the King. Be merciful, loyal, courageous, faithful, nobel, but above all, be ye humble before the King and before men. Let your words be always spoken in truth. - The Code Sir Dalton And The Shadow Heart

Pure: A 90-Day Devotional for the Mind, the Body & the Spirit By Rebecca St. James

 Rebecca St. James's messages of abstinence and modesty reflect her passionate love for Jesus and her commitment to living for Him. Rebecca does more than talk the talk--she walks the walk. And in this daily devotional, she offers young women the encouragement they need to join her in living a life of all-out purity. It's not just about sex. It's about mind, body, and spirit.

This 90-day devotional proves that purity is anything but old-fashioned and boring. It's edgy and relevant. Rebecca lives it--and readers can live it too. It starts with Day 1 . . . and ends with everyday radical living.
Rating: 1/5 Age Range: 14-20
I have to say I was highly dissapointed with this book. The first few days were fine, but I had a few problems with some of the things in the book. I won't rant and rave long, but I will say that one of the things I had a problem with. In the book, she mentioned a play she was in where she played a "less than honorable woman" in a play, depciting Jesus redeeming her. Thats not a problem your thinking? Your right! But she said she came out in a revealing outfit and shocked people! This to me is contradictary! If someones not walking the talk, then why listen to them?! 
In addition to this, it seemed to me that shes leeniant on the whole "dating" thing, and doesn't really state her beliefs. 
On a more positive note, I do believe she tries. She does have positive Christian music to share with the world. All in all, I wouldn't reccomend this book. If you enjoyed this book, please don't be affended! Everyone gets something different out of books, and this is only my opinion! If you have a different opinion of this book, please leave a comment!
