"Boy Meets Girl" presents an inspiring, practical example for readers wanting to pursue the possibility of marriage with someone they may be serious about. Are you ready for "romance with purpose"? If you're fed up with self-centered relationships that end in disillusionment, it's time to rethink romance. Finding the loving, committed relationship you want shouldn't mean throwing away your hopes, your integrity, or your heart. In "Boy Meets Girl," Joshua Harris --the guy who kissed dating goodbye--makes the case for courtship. As old-fashioned as it might sound, courtship is what modern day relationships desperately need. Think of it as romance chaperoned by wisdom, cared for by community, and directed by God's Word. Filled with inspiring stories from men and women who have rediscovered courtship, "Boy Meets Girl" is honest, romantic, and refreshingly biblical. Keep God at the center of your relationship as you discover how to: - Set a clear course for your romance - Get closer without compromise - Find support in a caring community - Deal with past sexual sin - Make the right decisions about your future New Courtship Conversations Eight ideas for great dates that will help grow and guide your relationship. Story Behind the Book "I wrote I Kissed Dating Goodbye to challenge singles to drop the worldly approach to serial dating and reconsider the way they pursued romance in light of God's Word. Since then, I've received letters asking questions like, So, what comes between friendship and marriage? and, How can you know when you are ready for marriage? Boy Meets Girl answers those questions. Now as a happily married man I can look back on my courtship with Shannon and see from personal experience that God is faithful. If you trust Him enough to wait on romance in dating, He will lovingly guide you as you pursue it in courtship...right to that wonderful moment when you kneel together at the altar." -- Joshua Harris

Times have changed Nov 10, 2008
I am a sophmore in college and I read this book with my boyfriend and most of it was very helpful and encouraging. However, I do not remember when this was written but today I feel like some of what is said is a little bit unrealistic. I would recommend this to anyone who is in a relationship and questioning where it is going or just looking for guidance. It has made me even more in awe of how amazing God is and how he just wants the best for us.
"boy MEETS girl" Oct 13, 2008
my boyfriend and i are reading this book and we are really growing and learning a lot from it. we take the time to talk about each chapter individually and ask what each other thought about it. Also, because its our first relationship, this book definitely helps serve as some guidelines... of course alongside with the bible. =)
amazinggggg! Oct 9, 2008
I read his first book "I kissed dating goodbye". I finally decided it was about time I read the second book for when/if I decide to date anyone. This book helped me so much and I really think everyone should read it! If you're thinking about getting it, def do.
Excellent Sep 9, 2008
Great book! Provides a solid alternative to the world's system, and a far better one at that, since it puts Christ first.
This book is more for those in their early 20's, whereas Harris' first book "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" is more for teenagers.
Courageous Sep 7, 2008
My thoughts where changed after reading IKDG and am wholy convinced that it was God who used this book to do what the bible teaches in Romans 12:2. Needless to say I have had alot of bad relationships that have left alot of scars. I can now say my focus is on Gods plan for my life, a message clearly stated in this book on dating. There are things God wants to do first. He wants you to see His plan first. He may have a Million dollar plan for your life! Although I have not read this book, yet, I commend Joshua for the efforts he is making to turn the hearts of those God has chosen through Josh's ministry. My message to anyone who reads these books is to ask God to reveal those things you need to see and teach you based on Josh's courageous ground breaking attempts to turn this big ship around. Read Josh's books with a open mind in lieu of one that is set upon a tradition. I challange this same mindset to search what your heart will say so that you to can reach out and touch the hearts of the hurting.
