This book contained sensible, level-headed guidance. The writing style is clear and understandable.
Sound Biblically-warranted principles are given guide Christians through right attitude and behaviour in relation to dating and relationships. Concepts of selflessness, activeness, patience, honour and faithfulness are magnified against our cultural backdrop of self-gratification, immediacy, personal preference and disregard for the other.
The use of personal testimonies from the authors and oth This book contained sensible, level-headed guidance. The use of personal testimonies from the authors and other Christians is mostly helpful. The probing, but honest self-examination questions are helpful. I was less keen on an overly-self conscious effort to engage the 'yoof' which was demonstrated by the authors' liberal citation of 'yoof-friendly' paraphrases of Scripture.
I personally don't believe young people are too stupid to understand a modern English translation, founded on the original Biblical languages. Even the use of the newer more gender inclusive language New International Version grated. I am a woman and I Rachel gardner dating dilemma never fainted yet over being addressed as a member of mankind. I find these aspects of the book a bit patronising.
In addition, the paraphrased Bible versions obscure meaning and insert anachronisms. These were sometimes trite, rather than axiomatic.
The book is laced with a gracious flavour which is helpful, however, I sometimes found Rachel gardner dating dilemma weak on naming sin. To someone who is already mired in guilt and shame the language of 'mistake' rings hollow. To the self-righteous, they need the law to bring their
Rachel gardner dating dilemma into view, like King David, when confronted by the prophet Nathan.
Then the grace of God can be meaningfully and abundantly offered, through Christ Jesus
Rachel gardner dating dilemma Lord, who died for us sinners. The book also conveys a quiet understanding of God's guidance which includes extra-biblical revelation.
These days I'm more comfortable with the concept of providence. This emphasis on God having said, x, y or z to individuals can be used to rationalise making unwise decisions, or sin.
Despite my caveats, I think this book could be useful in the context of Christian accountability relationships to prompt helpful reflection, discussion and prayerful transformation, in the realm of relationships. Aug 14, Ian Rees rated it really liked it Shelves: Good stuff, well thought-out and covering a wide range of subjects. It has a lot of discussion questions so could probably be used for getting young folk talking about dating - not sure how many teens would want to work through all the material provided on their own.
