Wait For Me: Rediscovering the Joy of Purity in Romance is a 2002 book written by Christian pop and rock singer/songwriter Rebecca St. James. It was inspired by her popular song, "Wait For Me" (from her album Transform) which was also the title of her 2000 46-city concert tour. The book, like the song, is about the values of remaining a virgin until marriage. The title also carried through to her 2003 compilation album, Wait For Me: The Best From Rebecca St. James. The book reached #1 on the Christian Booksellers Association Best Seller List for Young Adults.
|“||Using Scripture, pop culture, and her own experience as a point of reference, Rebecca paints a relevant and appealing picture of the value of waiting. But Rebecca also reaches out with compassion to those who have already made mistakes and reveals the mercy and healing that God brings.||”|
