Item description for Finding Mr. Right: And How to Know When You Have by Stephen Arterburn & Margaret Rinck...
Overview Now available in trade paper, Arterburn's humorous bestselling guide helps women know what to look for in a man and what to be as a woman.
The modern dating scene can be more than a little confusing. Popular books try to reduce finding a mate to a game with important rules. Magazine articles ask the question, "Who needs a man anyway?" And your Bible study leader seems to imply that the day you give up on getting married, the man God intended for you will ask you out. "Finding Mr. Right" offers a different perspective.
Authors Stephen Arterburn, M.Ed. and Meg J. Rinck, Ph.D. reject the idea that a woman looking for someone to marry is on a desperate, demeaning hunt. Neither do they believe that if a woman is simply patient, her one and only perfect mate will one day walk out of the mist and hand her a bouquet of flowers. Instead, they recognize that wanting to get married is a legitimate desire.
"Finding Mr. Right" outlines steps you can take toward a strong, satisfying marriage relationship, including:
Become the confident woman who can attract the kind of man you want
Make lifestyle choices that increase your odds of meeting someone
Recognize the qualities that make a man Mr. Right
Avoid the behaviors that sabotage a good relationship
Build a solid relationship with the right person

Reviews - What do customers think about Finding Mr. Right: And How to Know When You Have?
Could have done without the preaching Feb 5, 2007
The title of this book is a little mis-leading. It should have been called "How to find Mr. Right using the Bible". I am Christian but I found all of the constant refrences and Bible quotes to be overwhelming. I was searching for a book about how to find Mr. Right, not really a book about how to use the 10 commandments to find a decent non-good-looking guy. It does however have many valid points and the Bible is a good refence point for most things in life.... but this was just too much God for me to handle for entertainment sake.
Great Book but should have left out the bible quotes Apr 1, 2004
I throughly enjoyed book. I found it to be fresh. I have read almost every relationship book out there and found this to be a keeper. I am 54 and don't feel I need to "save" myself for marriage. I have passed over the "preaching" lightly with humor. Buy this book you'll definely learn something from it.
Could have been Excellent ... Aug 11, 2003
I really enjoyed this book until I reached pages 125 - 152 where the author(s) begin to tell us (women) "Where and How to Look for Mr. Right". Anyone who knows the Bible knows that women are "good things to be FOUND". We have no business looking for men, researching the web (Eharmony.com - the author(s) really pushed this website, it makes one wonder...?), having friends/family "set us up" etc. This is not biblical. Yes, God desires that we marry. God presents the woman to her man just has he presented Eve to Adam, Eve didn't run around looking for Adam. Eve was made for and presented to Adam.
Disturbingly enough, there's also a chapter that not only encourages, but also shows women how to FLIRT! In this chapter, you will find your "flirting style" and find that "flirting is fun!" I can't find any reference to "biblical flirting" in the Bible, therefore you won't find me doing it.
Other than the chapters I spoke of, I liked the book. It was thought provoking and covered issues other books on courting and relationships do not.
I gave the book 3 stars because anyone lacking wisdom and who may not be rooted and grounded in the Word of God may do as the book suggests in those 2 chapters and be in for a rude awakening.
okay... Feb 1, 2003
A lot of the advice written in here is very good but a lot of it also isn't. Some of it is so obvious but anyhow, I felt that the author pushed the point that people should take it upon themselves to find Mr. Right. When we should really trust God to do it for us, I've read dozens of dating/courting books and the one that I like best is "When God Writes Your Love Story by Eric and Leslie Ludy." Its more realistic.

Very good book to help put into perspective who the Mr. Right's are and how to go about seeking them out. I also have the book by Stephen Arterburn called "Avoiding Mr. Wrong" they are both excellantly written with a christian base. I recommend this to anyone and I plan to buy a copy for my 19 yr. old daughter.
