The Father's voice is very evident in this book! Dec 17, 2008
Yes, the voice of the Father...the voice I very much needed to hear. Dean Sherman writes with frankness, eloquence, and tender-heartedness on the subject of relationships. His wisdom is practical and profound. He expounds on the Scriptures' admonitions regarding sexual immorality and general immorality in a way that convicts without condemning. This book showed me that I had such a low view and goal for relationships. The Father's purpose and view of them is so much greater and better and higher! He desires so much better for all of us than we do. It is eye- and heart-opening and powerfully transforming knowledge! I highly recommend this book!
The best book on relationships Sep 13, 2005
Dean Sherman's Relationship-book (formerly titled "Love, sex and relationship") is an excellent book.
Without any doubt this is the book that helped me the most in my early twenties when I was wrestling to find out what godly and good relationships look like. Reading this book helped me see that the main thing for ALL of us is to have our relationship with God in order! When I'm whole and fulfilled in God, then, and only then(!), am I ready to enter into a relationship with another person.
Far too many relationships and marriages for Christians (and non-Christians!) consist of two lonely people trying to suck out a sense of purpose and love from the other person. Shermans points out that we were always meant to get our true sense of purpose and love from God, not our spouse or any other human being.
There is no way that any spouse (how wonderful he or she may be) can fulfill your deepest desires. There is a God-shaped hole in all of us, and only God can fill that. A beautiful relationship comes when two whole persons (in God!) come together and form a strong union with God as a natural center.
The book is brilliant, and it's obvious that it helps a lot that Sherman didn't meet his wife when he was 16 or so. He met her when he was 28, and it adds a lot of strength to the book that Sherman knows firsthand how it is to be single and to feel desperate for a spouse.
Five thumbs up for this beautiful book that I keep buying and giving away to people!
Excellent Insight Apr 13, 2003
Dean has tackled one of the most difficult, and often times most misunderstood, areas Christians face- How to handle relationships and sex as a Christian. His biblical insight and application on this subject helps shed much needed light on these topics. The book is for every Christian, and for many non-Christians as well. It is very down to Earth in its approach, and very solid in its message. It isn't the "typical" message your parents or pastors may have taught you. A MUST READ for any single- young or old- considering dating and relationships.
