Relationally practical and thought-provoking book were "rubber meets the road" when it discusses the spiritual heart and mind of relationships. Highly recommended for whatever stage of the dating scene you are in!
I didn't even finish the first chapter online, and I knew I wouldn't want to read this book. The four "truth's" he gives are hardly true. Like the third one: "You will date several people before getting married." Not everyone will. I won't. I have made the decision not to date, at all. I believe that when the time is right, God will bring my husband into my life, and He will show me that that's the person He wants me to marry. I've heard so many speakers say that dating young only increases the chances of you getting divorced. Personally, I don't see the point in dating young. As they said, "you're relationship will end"; another point that I didn't like. Who says it WILL end? They even go on to say that even at 18, you're relationship WILL end. I know plenty of people who dated when they were around 18 and are now happily married, for several years. I can't judge the rest of the book, but based on the first chapter, it's not a great Christian dating book. I've never heard a Christian say "oh yeah, dating's great. Experiment! It'll help you later in life". O_o I highly recommend reading the preview here, before buying the book.
This book was an excellent read for my 14 year old daughter. She did not want to read it at first and then couldn't put it down once she got started. This book was everything I had been trying to talk with her about. As a single parent, it's hard and I appreciated the extra help! As Christian women and men we really need to stick together to teach our children the ways of the world and the ways of God. Thank you Justin and Hayley!
