Book Review - No More Christian Nice Girl
I usually don't buy books of this genre but since the No More Christian Nice Girl: When Just Being Nice--Instead of Good--Hurts You, Your Family, and Your Friends book was offered to me for review for free by the publisher (Bethany House), I decided to go through it. As I started reading, I became more and more interested in going through the entire book. I am glad I read this book as it was not only entertaining and interesting but also very informative and filled with lot of practice advice.

Although the book focuses on girls, it can be applied to both genders. The central concept is that being too nice and trying to please everyone can do you and your family more harm than good. As per the book, being a good Christian and following Christ doesn't mean that you be nice no matter what and become a door mat for other people to walk over. Instead, the book recommends being more assertive, bold, authentic, and level-headed. The book cites various instances where Jesus Christ was assertive instead of trying to be always nice. Although the book seems repetitive at times, overall, it is a good book, filled with many words of wisdom.


I have received complimentary copy of the book. Please also see Disclosures and Disclaimer
