Ten commandments of dating by young and adams
This might very well be the most truthful book about dating out there. 1) The authors seem to think that what they say is final.Now, most of what they say is biblical and protective of your walk with Christ, but they don't seem very open to adapting to everyone's different walks in life. And 2) the Bible passages that they use are at the end of each chapter, and some of them don't really back up the commandments.I agree 100% with all of the commandments listed(although, there were bits in between that I thought could be tweaked maybe).Even though I accepted everything they said, it really didn't solidify in my mind.But perhaps that's just because I've never dated before.
What's nice is at the end of each chapter they include consequences and benefits for breaking and keeping the commandment.
I feel that I am more prepared for what lies ahead in my relationship and I now have a very good understanding of what the do's and dont's are if I want to have a great god centered relationship.
And in no way am I saying that I am now a pro and this book is all you'll need to have a perfect relationship but I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about dating seriously. I agree 100% with all of the commandments listed(although, there were bits in between that I thought could be tweaked maybe).
I wrote, This book gives concrete advice rather than just saying, "Pray for your spouse."I also liked that it make some jabs at I Kissed Dating Goodbye, a huge movement in my teen years that I rebelled against - mostly with my lips.
Having never dated before (I'm nearing 21), I didn't know what to expect or look for in a relationship since I was always on the look out for 1.) Is he a devoted Christian and 2.) Can I see myself with him a month, two, ten months, three years, ten years from now?
