hey - anyone read Josh Harris' book "I Kissed Dating Goodbye"?
Yes, I have. I read the original - not the updated one - although I plan to read the updated one with my children as they come of age. His general thesis is wise and biblical, even though I may not agree with every detail.
==No I have not, but if he "kissed dating goodbye" how did he get married? I think he just redefined dating. Just my opinion.:wavey:
Read the book, Martin. He explains it.
I read it, applied it, and though I didn't agree completely, used the larger principles. I'm now married to my bride. She's the second "girlfriend" I ever had, and I'm her first "boyfriend." Like most men in ministry, I married above myself.
To a certain extent - yes, he does redefine dating into the biblical model of courtship. He shows how the contemporary model of dating (i.e., over the last 50 years or so) is not a good way (or biblical way) of maintaining purity and creating strong marriages. Read the book - it is well worth it. He also has a follow up book on courtship. The first book spends more time deconstructing the contemporary model, while the second one spends more time explaining the biblical model.
