In , Harris's I Kissed Dating Goodbye became a phenomenon both in the publishing world and the Christian singles scene. Dating, Harris suggested, was an ungodly and unbiblical activity that Christians should reject in favor of a more old-fashioned, marriage-driven courtship. In this follow-up book, Harris guides Christians who are eager to say "I do" through the maze of finding a mate. His practical tips are set against the autobiographical backdrop of his own successful courtship with Shannon, now his wife of two years. Harris's words of wisdom aren't terribly innovative; they are the bread and butter of Christian relationship books claiming that good communication, sexual abstinence, friendship and fellowship are at least as important as romance. But lack of originality is the least of this book's problems.

Where Harris's first book encouraged readers to throw off modern ideas of romantic fixation, Boy Meets Girl goes to the next level and urges single Christian men and women to pursue courtship, and ultimately marriage, thoughtfully and prayerfully.

Knowing that many readers will balk at the idea of premeditated courtship, Harris insists that dating should not be emotional recreation but rather a careful decision rooted in obedience to God. While the anecdotes used to reveal true-to-life scenarios about dating pitfalls are somewhat elementary and geared to those in their 20s , Harris succeeds in hammering home the point that obedience to God's word, selfless love, community, purity, and satisfaction in God are the most important aspect of any relationship.

The last section of the book is particularly practical, discussing forgiveness of past sexual sin, questions to ask before tying the knot, and how an understanding of our sinful nature can lead to conflict resolution. For Harris's mere twentysomething years of life experience, his maturity and devotion to God are sincere evidence that he has indeed practiced what he has preached, resulting in a passionate relationship with the love of his life.

But lack of originality is the least of this book's problems. Harris's self-conscious attempts to be cute quickly grow tiresome the Courtship Cop who "pulls over" a couple thinking about marriage too early in their relationship is only the most glaring example. Also, many readers who would otherwise find Harris's message compelling may be put off by the strict "God-given" gender roles he lauds in chapter 6: a man should initiate everything in a relationship, while "ladies" are supposed to "make room for him to lead.

This book is full of Biblically guided advice in courtship and newly-married relationships.

Most of it is commendable, but sadly it all loses its appeal when you find out that the treacherous author recently renounced the Faith and dedicated himself to unbiblical ideas on sexuality and politics. As the title of this review says, good ideas, for the most part. I agree with what most of this book says. The chivalrous behavior, guarding your own and your partner's weaknesses to make sure neither stumble, and lots of other tips in this book are very beneficial. However, one thing I think the author does not emphasize enough from page one is first seeking God before even considering courting someone.

He doesn't seem to understand that a person can directly ask God "Should I court so-and-so? Some might think, well, maybe it is understood to go to God first because it is a Christian book. That might not necessarily be true for some Christians. Yes, biblical wisdom should be used.

But first you go to God and ask Him directly if it is His will to court so-and-so yes, that is allowed. THEN you wait for an answer. Does it line up with scripture? Is it confirmed by the Holy Spirit? And is there a peace about it? If those check off THEN make your move to court.

Secondly, in the beginning of the book, he does not emphasize enough the importance of God's direct role in choosing our mate. It should not be based on whether we find the person attractive, or think that just because a person is a Christian, they are court worthy; there is more to it than that.

He does not talk enough about how God knows who is best for us. He talks about how family should play a role in the process because they know us well. But he neglects to mention that God knows us best, that He should be the first one we go to when we start to consider our future mate and to ask Him to bring us the mate that He knows is best for us.

As stated before, the author mentions these things, but not until near the end of the book. THEN we follow suit with trust, obedience and patience. As a 28 year old male who has tried dating the worlds way for all of my dating time This book was a breath of fresh air for a few reasons. While some of the things in here may be "common sense" to some individual backgrounds and results will vary there were some perspectives, thoughts, and questions that I had either ignored, not thought to meditate on, or even occurred to me.

I would caution people from falling prey to unintentional legalism with a book like this. Josh gives some good practical guidelines, but also makes it very clear that they should be taken with a grain of salt and that each situation is unique.

The only issue I had with this book, was that he pointed out some lines of thinking I didn't even realize I've had in the past and it was uncomfortable to face. But that's my issue, not his or even an issue of the book itself. Great account of the author's personal experience through the process of courtship as well as others. Reads fast. It has lots of useful information in getting to know the other person while being guarded and uncompromised. The questions and ideas on getting to know one another in groups is also helpful.

There are some things that could have been left out of the book. The flip side is that it is good to have an example so young people will have an idea of what courtship looks like. I read this book without having read Joshua Harris' famous "I kissed dating goodbye". I was just 15 at the time, and everything he said confirmed what I felt God had been putting in my own heart about relationships--specifically forming "the relationship" with the man God had for me to marry.

It was twelve years before I would even meet that man, and another year before he proposed, but we went all the way to the altar following our own convictions and shared our first kiss there despite some criticism from some who thought we were being prudes.

Neither of us would change that for anything now. I think this book is so valuable, not because it says "this is the way", but because Joshua shares his own experiences and says "don't be afraid to let God lead you down your own path of purity. I am 68 years old and I recommend that every Christian alive on this earth read this book. Putting God and His will first in our lives. In every aspect of our lives. Considering others needs before out own.

I wish I could have read this when I was 13 and new in the faith. I did pray that God would bring me the boyfirend of His choice. And He did. But I could have used a bit of wisdom on dealing with the emotions back then. I highly recommend this book to teenagers, adults, parents, grandparents, ministers, would be mentors, in short everyone who wants a closer relationship with God and with each other.
