Overview

Christian singles, breathe a sigh of relief!

- Tired of couples married at 20 giving you advice on dating at 30 and beyond?
- Feel like you don't want to give up on dating-but don't have a choice?
- Want a book from someone who actually gets the difference between the high school and adult dating scenes?

At last, here's an honest look at the perils of Christian dating in the modern world. Written by singles for singles, this refreshingly funny book takes a unique, he said/she said look at the bewilderments of adult dating relationships.

How do you get out of a dating drought? What are the pros and cons of women making the first move? And what's the deal with all the new relationship fads targeting single adults? Camerin Courtney and Todd Hertz dive straight into the miry bog of Christian singledom to address these issues and more. They don't promise you a date in 30 days or less, but they do offer you hope and encouragement to help you navigate the pressures, trends, and temptations of dating as an adult.

Camerin Courtney is managing editor of Today's Christian Woman magazine, author of Table for One, and columnist for ChristianSinglesToday.com. Her suburban Chicago home is filled with Eiffel Towers, Starbucks' mugs from the many countries she's visited, and too many pictures of the wonderboy who made her Cool Aunt Cam.

Todd Hertz is an associate editor for Ignite Your Faith magazine, formerly Campus Life. He's a frequent contributor to ChristianSinglesToday.com and ChristianityTodayMovies.com. He lives in the Chicago area with a slowly dying plant, his own chocolate fountain, and a Monopoly-themed bathroom.

    Not your typical dating book

    As a 32 year old man who has never been married, I must admit that I find the general American Christian church's approach to singleness to be disheartening. This is because the standard approach treats us all as glorified youth, and most Christian leaders simply can't imagine what our lives are like. The dating 'advice' that they give is also really aimed at teenagers, and not at adults. Hence, the opening for a book such as this. Written by two magazine editors in their 30s who have never been married, the book focuses on the adult dimensions of the dating game. However, it isn't a dating guide as such, hence the rather odd title. I didn't like the title when I first encountered this book, but after reading it I must admit that it is rather apt. Secular dating books will try to teach you how to be more attractive to the oppostite sex, or great pickup lines, or places to go to meet single people, that kind of thing. This book doesn't do that. This book focuses on how to approach relationships (including potential romantic ones) in a Christian way, as well as relevant topics such as should the man or woman make the first move, body image, inter-gender friendships, and so on. Interestingly enough, while many questions are raised, almost no answers are given. At first blush this might indicate that the book is failing. On the contrary, most of the questions don't have one set answer to begin with, and each individual must answer the questions for themselves. The book itself is only slightly over 200 pages, and there is liberal use of white space, so it reads pretty fast. Overall, it does a good job with its topic and should prove useful to its target audience.
