‘I Kissed Dating Goodbye’ Book Review September 25, 2012

Title: I Kissed Dating Goodbye: A New Attitude Toward Romance and Relationships

Author: Joshua Harris

Date I Finished Reading: August 3, 2012

My Rating: 5/5

Joshua Harris’ book presents an idea to our generation that sadly has been lost in our society… not dating. Dating is considered normal nowadays. But at what price? And who ever said that normal means it is good? In his book Joshua Harris does an amazing job at humbly, honesty and biblically presenting evidence on the downfalls of the dating mentality, the flaws in this method, and what the bible has to say about the matter…

I thoroughly appreciated this book. Joshua Harris is a real, down-to-earth and practical author. This work strengthened my stance on why I believe what I believe on this matter. I highly recommend this book to any teen or young adult. Just remember to read it with an open mind and heart…

(Note: This book is on relationships. It is very open and  honest in doing so, and does speak on the physical aspects of relationship.)

‘And the Bride Wore White’ Book Review September 22, 2012

Title: And the Bride Wore White: Seven Secrets to Sexual Purity

Author: Dannah Gresh

Date I Finished Reading: February 15, 2012

My Rating: 2/5

I really wanted to like this book…really!  I was sadly disappointed. Dannah made a few wise points within the first few chapters such as the importance of honoring God in a relationship. But the remainder of the book — the actual seven secrets— was more along the lines of  “date however many boys you want, whatever boys you want (as long as they profess Christ) , whenever you want, as long as you don’t go TOO  far.” I really don’t agree with this point. I mean, is this REALLY  the way of achieving purity? I really don’t recommend this book to you young women. If you would like a good resource on sexual purity, I would recommend Rebecca St. James’ book Wait For Me. This…not so much.
