The Thrill of the Chaste (Catholic Edition)

Finding Fulfillment While Keeping Your Clothes On

by Dawn Eden

Dawn Eden, internationally known speaker and author, presents a completely revised Catholic edition of her bestselling work, The Thrill of the Chaste. In this version, Eden shares her story of conversion to Catholicism and invites readers into a Catholic understanding of chastity and its spiritual benefits. 

When Dawn Eden released The Thrill of the Chaste in 2006, she was a Jewish convert to Protestant Christianity, preparing to make the final leap into Catholicism. Now, nine years later, Eden has extensively updated The Thrill of the Chaste, sharing how her Catholic faith, the lives and intercession of the saints, and the healing power of the sacraments have led her to find her true identity in Christ.

This revised, Catholic version offers spiritual and practical advice for both men and women seeking to live chastely in a world that glorifies sex. Eden offers tips to help readers avoid temptation and live faithfully—including dressing modestly, but not being afraid to feel good about the way they look; trusting that God has a plan for their life and relationships; and making sure their “yes” comes from the heart.

Features & Benefits:

  • The Thrill of the Chaste is gaining renewed interest among Catholics because of the popularity of Eden’s second book, My Peace I Give You.
  • Eden has been a guest on the Today Show and spoken on chastity, healing, and conversion in more than 150 venues worldwide. She is visible on her blog, The Dawn Patrol, and at

“Dawn Eden’s wry, poignant Thrill of the Chaste isn’t just another chastity primer but the narrative of a soul redemptively recovering from Gen-X cynicism. Her raw chronicles conjure awkwardly familiar memories without glamorizing sin, all the while focusing on changing the person, not the past, and doing so with the hope of Christ.”
Colleen Swaim, Author of Your College Faith

“Very few writers can crank out prose that is at once elegant and funny, engaging and eclectic, and spiritually enriching with no treacly aftereffects—a combination that sums up Dawn Eden’s sweet spot as a new evangelist. I know her sorrow-tinged, but ever hopeful, story is going to change lives.”
