ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich., Jan. 11 /Christian Newswire/ -- Author Lori Wagner offers a cutting edge resource for young people and singles with her first full-length publication released this month. "Gates & Fences: Straight Talk in a Crooked World" enters the literary market highly recommended by reviewers. Breaking through negative thinking that considers restrictions unfavorably, this fresh and compelling work asks its readers to consider Biblical boundaries as a source of blessing and protection.

Described as inspiring by some, others may consider the content controversial. "I have teenagers," said Wagner, "and it's tough raising them in the culture of moral compromise we live in today. I hope to encourage young people to make wise choices for the here and now and for their futures." Wagner's proactive approach applies Scriptural principles to the day-to-day decisions young people and singles face. Chapters like "Modest is Hottest," "Don't Touch," and "Truth or Consequences" examine concepts of modesty, purity, and even STDs.

Wagner's frank discussions on topics ranging from setting priorities to wearing thong underwear provoke readers to examine their motives and consider the direction of the path their choices are placing them on. Enthusiastically endorsed by pastors, and with inter-denominational appeal, this avant-garde exposition offers help and hope to a generation raised on what Wagner calls "the doctrine of self-gratification" which ironically fails to satisfy.

The book is unique in its approach. Its spiral-bound format and Q&A and journaling pages at the end of each chapter motivate the reader to interact with the concepts explored on a personal level. The 138-page book features brief chapters, creative photography, and utilizes personal stories, humor, research, Scripture and prayer to keep the reader's attention from start to finish. "Gates & Fences" is currently being used in a classroom setting for group study, home school curricula, and by individuals.

A sample chapter, table of contents and reviews are available from the publisher's website: www.affirmingfaith.com. Books are available for purchase online or by sending $12.95 + $3.00 shipping and handling to Affirming Faith, 1181 Whispering Knoll Lane, Rochester Hills, MI 48306.
