By God's grace, this book helped me immensely to open my eyes to a totally new picture of what relationships between a man and a woman are about! The book caused me to back off from looking for a partner and evaluate myself first and foremost. Don't think that this is a book on how to find the right partner - you will be disappointed. Instead, it's a book on how to live a God-glorifying life with your relationship life, and this is what makes this book absolutely awesome - it's God centredness!
This book helped me to totally change my mindset of how I think about girls. Don't expect this book to give you a formula on how to find the right partner. The book is actually not so much about relationships than it is about how to live a life that honors God, be that as a single person or as one in a partnership. Hence, it's focus is on living a God glorifying life...and that is what makes this book so awesome! Absolutely worth reading!
This book was quite different in terms of the ideas of dating in modern society. It's hard to draw that line of commitment and boundaries when it comes to dating and so this was an interesting perspective the writer has taken. I found it quite interesting but i didn't enjoy the read as much as everyone else who suggested it to me. Still a good book to read!
Joshua starts off his point quite well, but does not provide an adequate alternative. Identifies problems, but does not provide solutions. I know it is a popular book, but it is his opinion on dating, does not fully consider all the issues, and I personally think a lot of hype is placed on the book that relies on current christian views and reinforces that.
Josh uses scripture and experiences to show readers how to have healthy, happy relationships with the opposite sex, without dating! The idea of having a balanced and Christ-centred relationship is rich and evident throughout the book. A must-read for anyone in the dating-game.
