- A great book for everyone regardless of where they are in their love life! by Rick on 2/22/2015
This book is one I got fired up to read after hearing Stanley preach at Catalyst in Dallas last month and him touching on some marriage stuff. This book is an amazing read and has a message that is meant for anyone doesn’t matter if you’re single, dating, or married. I would even go out on a limb this would be good for parents who are looking for ways or things/ways to talk about these topics to their teens. I Took the time to read this book and love what many young people who are searching for “the one” can read this and take away hopefully revelation from this book. Some of things talked about maybe strong but they are needed to be heard in this day and age. This book is for real, and brought some things out even more in what God has showing me in this part of my life lately. For sure recommend to everyone especially men!
- Christian Shelf-Esteem's review of The New Rules for Love, Sex, & Dating by Amanda on 2/17/2015
The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating is full of the stuff your parents didn't tell you. The part of "the talk" that was never talked about. From the myth about finding Mr. or Ms. Right, through the true definition and design for love. Andy Stanley's straight talk approach will shatter your perceptions and preconceived notions about love, sex, and dating in today's world.
Drawing on his many years as a pastor of a burgeoning church, Andy Stanley has seen more than his fair share of relationship struggles. What he has noticed is a series of patterns among them all which seem to doom them to failure. In this book, Andy Stanley takes an very direct approach by presenting the facts, anecdotes, and pastoral advice aimed at breaking the cycle of broken relationships. He addresses our propensity for mistaking sexual capability with relationship compatibility, the falsehood that we can change the behaviors of others, the importance of preparing ourselves for the marriage, [for men] what it means to be a gentleman - not just a man, and finally a thorough definition of a love worth having and holding onto. This book is written for everyone (not just Christians) because the problems are universal, and the same is true for the the solutions.
I have been married for 12 years so you may wonder why I have chosen to read The New Rules for Love, Sex & Dating. I have two children, and the practice of arranged marriages are not longer in practice. I don't expect my children to just wake up one day prepared for marriage. Instead, I believe a clear definition of love and what to look for in a future spouse needs to be discussed in various ways as they mature. Another reason is that I volunteer at my local crisis pregnancy center, where I meet numerous young women who are often trapped in emotionally, physically, and spiritually draining, unrewarding relationships. This book is for is for them. Whether you are starting fresh or starting over this book is for you too.
