Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"These girls tell it like it is. They'll challenge you to align the why, how, who, what and when of your love life with the truth of God's Word. And nowadays ... that's a truly radical thing to do!" ~ Mary A. Kassian (Author, Girls Gone Wise, Alberta, Canada.)

"In Radical Dating, they grapple honestly, earnestly and winsomely with how young women can honor the Lord in their interactions with guys, and how bringing Him into those relationships-even into the disappointment of unfulfilled longings-can help cultivate Christ-like character." ~ Nancy Leigh DeMoss (Author, Revive Our Hearts radio host, Niles, Michigan)

"sound biblical foundation, charming illustrations and humor pose the volume to be one that should be a part of every Christian's library." ~ Patricia A. Ennis (Chair Department of Home Economics-Family & Consumer Sciences, The Master's College, Santa Clarita, California )

"Relationships matter to God so the way we treat each other should matter to us as well. Here is a book that takes a serious look at what it means to march to the rhythm of a different drumbeat. It will make you think and, if you're in a relationship, we hope it will make you talk." ~ Ian and Ruth Coffey (Moorlands College, Dorset, England)

"The authors have masterfully intertwined the truth of scripture with the practical outworking of every day dating life. They answer the difficult questions single women are asking today with answers that speak to the heart and soul. Radical Dating will not only transform your dating life, but may very well make a radical difference in all areas of your life." ~ Terri Stovall (Dean of Women's Programs, Associate Professor of Women's Ministry, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas )

""The three authors of Radical Dating share some common denomination - deep commitment to Christ, theological training and comfort in their friendship and joy in their fellowship. But for this project, they find strength in their common passion-preparing the next generation of women for lives set apart unto the Lord Jesus! That is a radical goal and requires radical thinking! Dating can be frivolous and futile or Christ-honoring and life-changing-all to be determined by how you go about it. This volume is a must read for young women and their parents!" ~ Dorothy K. Patterson (Professor of Theology in Women's Studies, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Forth Worth, Texas)

"Most books on dating are so superficial as to be of no use to the thoughtful Christian. Here at last is a book that is contemporary, fun to read, and profoundly biblical. Again and again, the authors take us back to Scripture to provide a new way of thinking about dating. This book will be a lifeline to single Christians who want to date the right way, which is to say God's way." ~ Ray Pritchard (President, Keep Believing Ministries and Author, Tupelo. Missipppi)
