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 God's Word. Since then, I've 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."

The way of a man with a maiden explained
5 stars By Joel Radford, Jan 17 2013
Most of us can sympathise with the book of Proverbs when it says: 'There are three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden' (Proverbs 30:18-19). Romantic relationships are indeed complicated and usually surpass our understanding. Particularly when they involve our own pursuit of a spouse.

But Joshua Harris is here to help as he wades into the difficult subject and teaches us the basics of Christian courting. In the first part of 'Boy meets girl' we are taught what is:
(i) purposeful romance (the relationship should have marriage as its goal);
(ii) wise romance (not just romantic feelings);
(iii) a right decision about who to marry and when.

Then in the second part of the book Harris gives counsel to those courting on:
(i) growing as friends;
(ii) communication;
(iii) the roles of men and women;
(iv) involving your local church in your courtship;
(v) maintaining sexual purity.

The third part suggests items that should be discussed before the marriage, including past sexual sin.

Overall, the book gives much wise counsel for would-be husbands and wives. Not only that, the book is easy to read and interspersed with helpful (and often entertaining!) illustrations.

If you want to understand the way a man should behave with the maiden he wants to marry, Harris is a most helpful guide.

wisdom
5 stars By kikoprincess, Jul 06 2012
Boy Meets Girl was written by Pastor Joshua Harris who wrote I kissed dating goodbye (I'll review this later). In the first chapter Josh tells us how his attitude changed from not being ready to be married to being attracted to one girl... but eventually marrying another. He explains that courtship fills the gap between friendship and being lovers. Courtship is a relationship between a man and a women who are actively and intentionally together to consider marriage (p27). There is a purpose- to see if God wanted the two people to marry.Josh communicates his messages really well through the use of real stories and honesty. Although the concepts in the book aren't new, he certainly makes them really real and achievable despite the pressures of the modern world where sex is rampant, love is given freely and divorce is prevalent.

Marrying Wisdom and Relationships
5 stars By Cat, Nov 17 2007
Boy meets Girl is a must read for teenagers and young adults. In fact I wish I had read it years before I did - it may have saved me a lot of heartache.
Joshua Harris writes with wisdom well beyond his years as he reflects on his personal journey and retells stories of the challenges and blessings friends have experienced whilst seeking out their future spouse.

This is a book I didn't just read once and put on the shelf.  It has become somewhat of a reference guide that I keep revisiting as it provides me with clear identification of the 'markers' I need to seek and avoid during the process of courtship.  Everytime I read it I see courtship in a new and more Godly way. A fantastic read.
