Reviews - What do customers think about Just Don't Marry One: Interracial Dating, Marriage, and Parenting?

Not what it is touted to be  Feb 16, 2008
This book is not so much about interracial relationships as Christian prejudices, doctrine and rhetoric. Not interesting to non-Christians. Also, the topic of interracial marriage is only a "charged" issue if you are in fact from a prejudiced background, religion, culture, or area (and not everyone is).
an excellent Biblically based look at interracial dating  Jan 22, 2008
This is a great collection of essays from various people with all different points of view on interracial relationships. They all have one thing in common, which is a Biblical, Christian perspective. It focuses more on strictly interracial relationships, rather than general intercultural ones. It includes historical information, personal stories, and stories of interracial couples in the Bible.

An addition to my original review. This book is not only for black man/white woman relationships, as the picture on the cover shows. The authors come from a variety of ethnicities, and write about their own experiences. Most of them are Americans and married to Americans, but their differing cultures still affect their relationship.

George and Sherelyn Yancey - the editors, also each the author of a chapter. He is an African American, she is a European American

Craig S. Keener - a European American married to a woman from the Congo

A. Charles Ware - an African American married to a European American

Ken Ham - a biologist writing not about inter-cultural marriage but about all people being related through Adam

Sundee Tucker Frazier - a biracial woman, providing the perspective of the children of mixed marriages (African American father, European American mother)

David Tatlock - a European American married to an African American

Art and Debbie Lucero - a triracial Mexican man (with European, African, and Native American ancestors) and a biracial American woman (European American father and Japanese American mother)

Randy Woodley - biracial (European American and Native American) married to a biracial woman (also European/Native American)

Bob and Jean Chin - Chinese American man and European American woman

Olga Soler - multiracial American woman (Taino Indian, Sephardic Jew, African, French, Moor) giving advice to European Americans who would want to marry a multiracial person

Michael and Joni Emerson - both European Americans discussing the topic "What if Our Children Date Interracially?"

Fred Prinzing - a European American man whose son married an African American

Deborah Johnson - an Asian American married to an African American
Needs a different title  Oct 25, 2007
The title of this book is very offensive. It implies that you are marrying a thing rather than a person. The title alone makes you think that the author(s) are racist. Not a wise choice
Personal and Professional  Jul 31, 2007
"Just Don't Marry One" is a courageous book. It combines professional insight with personal testimony to affirm interracial relationships and to create a reference work to equip professionals. It can serve as a primer for couples and for pastors, counselors, and spiritual friends.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction , Soul Physicians, Spiritual Friends.
OK Book  Oct 13, 2005
Very good book for interracial dating advice by the way if your looking for an interracial relationship your may want to try Matchinterracial or some of the other sites that cater to interracial dating
