Clear Biblical Thinking and Practical Application The dating versus courtship arguments in my opinion, have largely fallen into two inadequate camps. Courtship (often) is defended as the preferable option because it was the norm in Biblical culture. Our modern context is usually written off while the cultural practice of the past becomes the normative Biblcal command for us now. I had trouble making that leap. And I found that many who “kissed dating good-bye” made it into a Biblical command, rather than what it is, a wise application of Biblical principles. The other side, who “gave dating a chance”, often failed to wrestle significantly with the Biblical material and empahsized following Biblical principles within the flawed system of dating.

Wow. Best book I’ve read on dating for adults! This is a fantastic book. The Phillips worked with the singles ministry at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, and they have a real love for singles and lots of practical, wise advice. I wish I had read this book when I was in college; it would have saved me a lot of wasted emotion and wondering why guys were so frustrating!

The BEST dating book from a Christian perspective hands down If you’re a single or dating Christian (or know a friend who is a single or dating Christian) you MUST get this book for yourself (or your friend). The value of this book cannot be underestimated in an age where even Christians do not have a proper understanding of the nature of dating that leads to marriage. The authors (Richard and Sharon Phillips) are a married couple with very solid theological backgrounds. Though their theological background is Calvinistic or Reformed this book can be a valuable resource for ANY evangelical Christian no matter what his or her denominational background is.
