Reviews - What do customers think about Boundaries In Dating Participants Guide?
A must-read in today's dating scene Feb 28, 2007
This is a great book. If I try to tell you all the reasons why, I'll just end up copying it word for word. So I will attempt to highlight a few of the book's strengths. First, I liked that it doesn't make dating bad ipso facto. A lot of dating is sketch in this day & age but dating in and of itself is not, and can, in fact, be good. The authors, who are both Christian psychologists, illustrate how dating is a helpful aid in the marriage discernment process, and how at the same time, it can be a tool for our own personal spiritual growth.
It is balanced between evaluating the person you are dating and evaluating your own character and what you bring to the relationship. It is sometimes tempting for Christians to seek perfection in a date/future spouse, but the authors help the readers to refocus their sights on righteousness, not perfection, reminding us that we need to take the logs out of our own eyes before we deal with the specks in others.
The book is nicely organized into 4 parts: You and Your Boundaries, Whom Should I Date?, Solving Dating Problems: When You're Part of the Problem, and Solving Dating Problems: When Your Date Is the Problem. As an added bonus, there are Take-Away Tips at the end of every chapter that summarize the main points just outlined.
I know for my part that this book has helped me understand past relationships, as well as discern for the future. It is a welcome antidote to the prevailing theories of love, sex, and relationships. I recommend it without reservation.
Safeguarding the sacred soul of self and others Feb 21, 2007
This book, now abridged in audio, cuts to the heart of relationship issues. Fundamentally, in relationships, many problems surfacing years into the future, can be prevented by focusing in on our own and our prospective mate/date's spiritual character and ability to grow. This book tackles the fundamental reason that many relationships do not suceed, a failure to establish the boundaries that safeguard the most precious soul. It is a book to give, to read and to ponder, about valuing the self and others as sacred creations.
Excellent Read Feb 10, 2007
Dr. Cloud's book is excellent! He uses easygoing conversational language that keeps the reading light. I am reading and discussing this title with my girlfriend and it has led to some fun/interesting conversations. Through sharing this book we have learned much about each other, grown individually and grown as a couple.
The author also uses caring language and helps you understand mistakes you may have made or continue to make in relationships. Dr. Cloud may confirm your thoughts and leanings or give you better and newer understanding of why we do what we do in our dating relationships.
Great Book...no matter how long you've been dating.... Oct 25, 2006
I was sort of peeved that I didn't read this book sooner, definately could have helped me avoid so many relational disasters. Some parts of the book were painful but oh so necessary to read. It helped me make real changes in my thinking and behavior and gave me a terrific insight into what to look for in those I date.
I read and RE-read so much of this book, it's pages are dog-eared. You won't regret buying this one. It helped me greatly. I'm now happily married and my husband and I both read this book prior to finding each other. Needless to say, we had much to talk about when we did finally meet and this book was at the center of it.
I should have read it sooner. Mar 6, 2006
As a Christian man who got involved closely with two psychopathic women, I also understand that dating is a two way street. This book, more than a handful fo times, showed where not only I was wrong but where I should have also put up some boundaries in order to save myself some frustrations and heartaches.
Keep in mind that this book is from a very Christian perspective, so only read it if you plan on treating your women right, with the value they deserve, and not like some ghetto-slaving gutter-skank.
