Amazing Book!! Jul 25, 2009
This book revolutionized the way I looked at relationships. I highly suggest this nook for anyone who has problems with sex in realtionships, having realtionships and most importantly- Having Godly realtionship. This book is the answer to many prayers regarding my realtionship with my boyfriend! Please read this book, and then pass it on to as many people as possible!!!
Some good ideas, but unrealistic and rather irritating Nov 16, 2008
The good: They give a general map of how to act as a single person, and overall, it's pretty decent. A lot of this is not new, but hey, not a bad idea. Here's their general plan:
* First, give over control of all of your life (especially romantic) to God * Spend time getting to know God, and have it be on a regular basis * Keep you heart whole and remain physically pure for your spouse...do nothing that might cause them pain or discomfort * Prepare yourself for your future spouse, including writing or doing things for him/her * Be content in your singleness, develop your talents, and build your relationship with God while awaiting your spouse * Practice being Christ-like with your family, which will serve as preparation for your marriage * Get people on your team to discern God's will for your love life, starting with your parents
The Ludys' tend to be rather irritating in their writing. For instance, they talk about all this time that they spent waiting for the future spouse and abstaining from having sex, and they're like 17 and 20, respectively. Hardly encouraging for those people who make it past college and are still waiting.
Also, as other commenters have posted, some of their language reeks of saccharine (and I have a high tolerance for the stuff). The Princess of Purity and Pearl of Purity...yuck!
Also, they take a rather juvenile position on the kinds of activities they'd want their spouse to have done prior to meeting them. Oh no, a guy put his arm around my future wife and is talking sweet to her! I'm now enraged and jealous over this guy! And obviously, anything beyond this is even worse. Extraordinarily unrealistic.
Its good points got it two stars, but its irritating and immature ideas is what kept its rating to rise above it. If you're looking for a book dealing with sexual purity/abstinence issues, I'd recommend Lewis Smedes' Sex for Christians which was a far more mature, nuanced, and thoughtful book.
The title says it all Nov 2, 2008
Very good book; I recommend it to all teens and/or college aged persons seeking after God's own heart. I even passed this book on to one of my dear friends. Granted, I didn't agree with everything in the book, but it still was very well-written.. I read it this past summer, and it was just what I needed to hear. I felt empowered, encouraged, and uplifted. Even though I am not looking for a relationship at this point in time with my walk with God, I feel better about singleness, though others around me may not support my decision. Has a lot of good thought-provoking ideas, topics, and opinions that really make one think about that aspect of a relationship and one's journey towards that life-long commitment that so many desire. It gives personal examples so that you can relate to the authors and see their hardships, their journey, their struggles. People say I will get married, but only God knows. If I do get married (and only because God has it in his plans,) I cannot wait to see the unfolding/unveiling of how God has written my love story. He already has for each of us, it is just a matter of time until He reveals it to us.
WWAAAYYYY BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS!!!!! Sep 2, 2008
k so, i'm not done with the book yet, I still need to read the last part, but I mean.
The Ludy's have covered everything I was expecting them to cover about relationships, or probably what I was lookin for. They have even mentioned stuff I didn't expect AT ALL to be mentioned in a guy/girl relationships book. It's THAT good. And those, are good and necessary things for a healthy relationship to happen. The book's purposes is to draw you close to God, and put in you this desire to do things God's way, and not your way, which I find AMAZING. And I actually am experiencing that desire now, as a result of reading through it.
And this is so like, not me, but I cried once or twice reading this.
I had a couple questions while I was reading, and a few pages later, they were answered clearly, and biblically.
I agree with basically everything they have said here. But that's probably just me.
if I could give this book 6 stars or more, I would. Period.
New paradigm available here Jul 12, 2008
I searched on this site and read reviews in order to find a book on dating as a Christian that I felt would speak to me where I am- trying to date in a godly manner, not being sure that the person i'm dating is 'the one', and wanting to be drawn closer to God through the process. This book was a great find and I immediately wanted to reread it, get the advice to sink in and re-do the action steps that are included at the end of each chapter. I love how easy the read is while the content is rich and transforming. As I finished the book i left with a greater drive to turn my relationship over to the Lord and trust Him with however He would have it go, while seeking to serve my boyfriend as a sister in Christ who desires for his relationship with the Lord to grow also. I found that the best way to do this was by pushing myself closer to the Lord.
I know this makes it sound like a weight-loss program, but within a few weeks what I applied from this book as well as some fasting and more praying has led to a much more godly and God-driven relationship. I praise God for the instrument the Ludy's words have been in my love-life and I pray you would experience that blessing also.
Awesome!! Jun 10, 2008
Eric and Leslie have such a way of writing great truth about love and relationships taken directly from the Bible with humor and comen sence that makes it understandable and desirable for my generation to want to pursue. I loved this book just like all thier other books because it encouraged me that I wasn't alone in waiting for God to write my love story. It showcases the fact that God alone is the one who can make anything work. Life, love, work, singleness, everything! A great book all the way around!!
