"Linda Kay Klein's new book pulls back the covers on 'purity culture' and the harm it has done to a whole generation. An important book from an important new voice."

– Rev. Brian D. McLaren, author of The Great Spiritual Migration

"Klein’s book will get God up doing a standing ovation in creation for revealing that God’s message is to love all of ourselves—mind, body, and spirit. This is to embrace the gift of life and to live in freedom with integrity and joy. Any form of purity that does not celebrate this, does not celebrate God working in our lives."

Rev. Dr. Emilie M. Townes

Professor of Womanist Ethics and Society, Vanderbilt University Divinity School

"Linda Kay Klein’s PURE is an important book for this moment in history, as women come to the collective understanding that the institutions we spend our lives serving are not created to serve us. PURE emboldens us to escape toxic misogyny and experience a fresh breath of freedom."

—Glennon Doyle

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author of LOVE WARRIOR and founder of Together Rising

"Linda Kay Klein takes us inside religious purity culture as only one who grew up in it can. She shows us how the system of mind-and-body shaming works within a religious movement so culturally and politically influential that it must be understood by us all."
