Reviews - What do customers think about Black Christian Singles Guide To Dating?
Excellent book for African-American youth Aug 13, 2001
I though the book was very thought-provoking and offered some Godly, practical advice in a downt-to-earth language that youth will understand and not feel "preached to". I plan on giving each of my college-bound nieces a copy.
This book sucks! Oct 1, 1999
I did not like this book at all. I felt the title of the book is misleading because the author seemed less focused on the Word of God (for Christians), and more on not offending certain groups. I think if this site.com had a 0 star this book would get it.
An excellent book for parents and African American youth. Jan 21, 1999
This is a great book for parents to use to help guide their youth into relationships. Young people will relate to many of the issues that Jackson covers.
