Got a spark from me?)
If those check off THEN make your move to court. Secondly, in the beginning of the book, he does not emphasize enough the importance of God's direct role in choosing our mate.
It should not be based on whether we find the person attractive, or think that just because a person is a Christian, they are court worthy; there is more to it than that. He does not talk enough about how God knows who is best for us. He talks about how family should play a role in the process because they know us well. But he neglects to mention that God knows us best, that He should be the first one we go to when we start to consider our future mate and to ask Him to bring us the mate that He knows is best for us.
As stated before, the author mentions these things, but not until near the end of the book. THEN we follow suit with trust, obedience and patience. As a 28 year old male who has tried dating the worlds way for all of my dating time This book was a breath of fresh air for a few reasons.
While some of the things in here may be "common sense" to some individual backgrounds and results will vary there were some perspectives, thoughts, and questions that I had either ignored, not thought to meditate on, or even occurred to me. I would caution people from falling prey to unintentional legalism with a book like this. Josh gives some good practical guidelines, but also makes it very clear that they should be taken with a grain of salt and that each situation is unique.
The only issue I had with this book, was that he pointed out some lines of thinking I didn't even realize I've had in the past and it was uncomfortable to face. But that's my issue, not his or even an issue of the book itself.
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I am 68 years old and I recommend that every Christian alive on this earth read this book. Putting God and His will first in our lives. In every aspect of our lives. Considering others needs before out own. I wish I could have read this when I was 13 and new in the faith. I did pray that God would bring me the boyfirend of His choice.
But I could have used a bit of wisdom on dealing with the emotions back then. I highly recommend this book to teenagers, adults, parents, grandparents, ministers, would be mentors, in short everyone who wants a closer relationship with God and with each other.
Great account of the author's personal experience through the process of courtship as well as others. It has lots of useful information in getting to know the other person while being guarded and uncompromised. The questions and ideas on getting to know one another in groups is also helpful. There are some things that could have been left out of the book. The flip side is that it is good to have an example so young people will have an idea of what courtship looks like.
I read this book without having read Joshua Harris' famous "I kissed dating goodbye". I was just 15 at the time, and everything he said confirmed what I felt God had been putting in my own heart about relationships--specifically forming "the relationship" with the man God had for me to marry. It was twelve years before I would even meet that man, and another year before he proposed, but we went all the way to the altar following our own convictions and shared our first kiss there despite some criticism from some who thought we were being prudes.
Neither of us would change that for anything now. I think this book is so valuable, not because it says "this is the way", but because Joshua shares his own experiences and says "don't be afraid to let God lead you down your own path of purity. One person found this helpful.
This was recommended to me by a pastor who was my youth pastor years back and is now the head pastor of his own church and still recommends Joshua Harris to christian singles, or couples of all different ages.
