Top Christian Book of the Month: June 2017
Christian Dating Simplified
by Aaron K. Torch
If You’ve Ever Asked
What is a “Christian Dating” or a “Christian” relationship anyway?
What does God really say about dating?
How do I know if this girl or that boy is truly the right one for me?
Will God let me know?
If you’ve ever asked these questions, then you need to read this book.
Our top Christian book of the month nomination is Christian Dating Simplified by Aaron K Torch. Although this may be one of the shortest Christian books on dating you’ll ever read, it may well be the best book on the topic. We’ve read lots of great books on Christian dating, marriage, and relationships but Torch’s ability to write with clarity is immensely helpful and practical.
Three Common Questions
Yet, even before Torch begins addressing the four questions you should ask, he starts by answering three common questions:
What does the Bible have to say about soul mates?
Will God somehow tell me which person to date and marry? And if so, how will I know
Should I be looking for a Proverbs 31 woman, or a Boaz?
This book addresses those three questions with Scripture and then offers the only four questions you really need to ask to know if the relationship you’re considering is aligned with God’s heart.
A must-read for anyone who is tired of Christian clichés. Dismantling the myths and moving past superficial ‘rules’ and ‘guidelines’ for dating, this book quickly and skillfully captures the essence of the biblical message for dating.
And it’s not that complicated.
When it’s all said and done, the Bible says absolutely nothing about dating. That’s a good and bad thing. Good because God gives us the freedom the choose. Bad because there exists thousands of bad Christian dating books offering guidelines ranging from unnecessary to harmful.
