Wonderful Nov 8, 2008
This is a wonderful work. It covers a wide variety of topics relating to vocations, dating, sex, relationships and the Catholic teaching behind each of them. He supports his ideas with references to Catholic documents, the works of the saints, secular authors, interesting statistics and, most importantly, Sacred Scripture. I would highly recommend this to any high school or college student as an essential piece of work to read. However, that is not to take away from the book because I would consider it extremely useful for parents, priests or anyone in Catholic education to read as well.
Absolutely Beautiful Oct 2, 2008
I adore this book. I am a female in my 20's and was introduced to this book several years ago by the mother of a boy I had a crush on (a little awkward, but whatever). It changed my life.
I have tried reading other Christian books before, but they always made me feel bad about myself (I was a wild child, who hates to read). This book was different. Not only did I get through the book without feeling like a sinner, but I finally understood why I've made questionable decisions throughout my young-adult life. It also showed me how and why to make the right decisions in the future. I finally believed that I'm not a bad person, and that if I love someone, and they love me back, we'll want nothing but the best for each other.
Since my first read, I've given it to my friends, parents, sisters, boyfriends, co-workers, and have referred back to it any time I need an lift. No matter what your age, gender, marital status, religion, or sexual history, this book will help you learn to love in a totally different way.
Awesome! Aug 25, 2008
As a teenager, this book has helped me develop a better relationship with God and myself. It may seem like a book that tells you to save sex for marriage but its way more than that. It answers a lot of questions that teenagers face everyday & are afraid to ask their parents. Jason Evert explains things so well and in a matter that teenagers can understand. I highly recommend this book for every Catholic teenager.
Rubbish Aug 5, 2008
"Is french kissing a mortal sin?"
The first section of the book seemed pretty bad, but as soon as I got to this question I had to laugh out loud. A mortal sin...french kissing...are you kidding me?!?! Talk about making frenching sound better than it is. After all if it could be a mortal sin, it must be good, right?
eAll in all this book has a way too conversative view on sex, and it seems like it was written for a 13 year old. For me, a 22 year old that is soon getting married, this book was of little value. I don't feel that the author is speaking to me or being honest. In the trash it went.
Excellent book for teens Jun 30, 2008
We gave each of our three oldest sons a copy of this wonderful book by Jason Evert. The author has a unique, humorous and special way of communicating the truth in love. This book is especially helpful for the teen years, but I would strongly recommend it for young adults as well. I also highly recommend his video "Romance Without Regret."
