Item description for Devotions for Dating Couples: Building a Foundation for Spiritual Intimacy by Ben Young & Samuel Adams...

Today, there is a great deal of emphasis on the mystical and intangible nature of relationships but very little emphasis on the real, practical steps involved in building an enduring love. In contrast, authors Ben Young and Sam Adams place great importance on the value of spiritual compatibility in Devotions for Dating Couples.

Designed especially for highly committed or engaged couples, it helps readers:

  • Understand and avoid the most common barriers to spiritual growth
  • Have an increased desire for fellowship with God
  • Share and explore spiritual issues together
  • Pursue godliness, personal relational health, and wholeness
  • Each of the nine sections includes Scripture quotations, suggested meditation passages, and discussion questions, as well as anecdotes from real people including the authors. Intended as an eight-week study, weekday devotions are to be completed by both individuals, and each weekend study is to be completed together as a couple.

    Reviews - What do customers think about Devotions For Dating Couples?

    Great study!  Mar 16, 2006
    My Boyfriend and I are almost through this study, and we have learned a lot about God, and about each other through it. It is great doing something like this together and being able to keep each other accountable. I recommend this to any dating couple who wants to grow closer to God and to each other!
     
    What we expected  Mar 15, 2006
    While some complain about the lack of depth in conversation questions, I would call it an opportunity for free discussion. Because the questions are rather general, one feels much more free to allow the conversation to wander from the original topic, providing more insight into the beliefs and backgrounds of your dating partner.

    As far as the format, there is simply nothing else out there. We looked hither and yon for an individual bible study with weekly couple components. This is it.
     
    A non-threatening primer  Jan 29, 2006
    My girlfriend and I were trying to find a book that would just help us get in the habit of doing devotions together and praying together, and for the most part, this book did the trick. While some of the topics covered will seem old-hat to people that have been raised Christian or been Christian for years, they sometimes serve as a nice "refresher course" - something every Christian needs now and then.

    Overall, I felt this book was very non-threatening, and a good way to accomplish the goal we were trying to meet. If you're looking for a way to introduce devotions in to your relationship without making it seem like a chore or a source of conflict, this book is a good bet.
     
    Dating Devo  Oct 17, 2005
    My girlfriend and I are just finishing this devo up this week and I must say that I have really enjoyed it. My girlfriend and I have gotten many hours of discussion and learning from the book. I kind of agree with other reviewers that it can be simplistic but it is the beauty of it as well, and we say it as more of a guideline for more discussion which is why whenever we got together to go over the questions we were discussing for hours. I would recommend this to any couples as a good first devo together and then maybe moving onto devotionals that go deeper.
     
    Digging Deeper...Together  Jul 16, 2005
    This book has been amazing. My boyfriend has gone to church all his life and I started in 7th grade, we're now Freshmen in college, but we've know eachother for about 6 years and have been dating now for 2 years. I have always been slightly intimitated by his praying and his knowledge of the Bible but this has really opened up lines of communication that have enabled us to dig deeper and to honestly want to encourage eachother in our quite times as well as keep accountablity. Some of the Saturday discussion question have really allowed us to be real and to trust in eachother on a whole other level. We are still working on the book but it has already helped us to continue in our desire to glorify God in our relationships both with one another as well as others around us and to also hit home base on some topics that are never discussed. I'd recommend it but make sure that you pray about it and that it is something that God wants for the BOTH of you to do. :)
