Story Behind the Book
"I wrote I Kissed Dating Goodbye to challenge singles to drop the worldly approach to serial dating and reconsider the way they pursued romance in light of Gods Word. Since then, Ive received letters asking questions like, So, what comes between friendship and marriage? and, How can you know when you are ready for marriage? Boy Meets Girl answers those questions. Now as a happily married man I can look back on my courtship with Shannon and see from personal experience that God is faithful. If you trust Him enough to wait on romance in dating, He will lovingly guide you as you pursue it in courtship…right to that wonderful moment when you kneel together at the altar." Joshua Harris
Daniel Holloway5 Stars Out Of 5Opening the Door to "Happily Ever After"February 26, 2016Daniel HollowayQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is Harris's sequel to "I Kissed Dating Goodbye." It is the "rest of the story"; it is the "happy ending." You don't want to miss it. "Kissed" exposes the problems that come w/ dating. "Boy Meets Girl" provides the healthy & happy alternative. 1 of my main reactions to "Kissed" upon reading it the first time was the impressive perception of its young author. Harris was barely 22 when the book was published. Not only was he very perceptive, he demonstrated exceptional ability as a writer -- all in all, he had that "beyond his yrs." quality. He didn't let up any when he wrote "Boy Meets Girl" 3 yrs. later. These are great books for teenagers as well as their parents. If you're a parent, you don't have to wait for your children to become adolescents; get Harris's books now, read them, & let his insights begin to cook in your head. As they do, they'll begin to color your world &, in turn, your children's world. They can bless your family for generations. I like to tell people that I want to be able to reach from beyond the grave to influence the eternal destiny of my descendants yet unborn. Aim high for your heritage!
