Praying for Your Future Husband: Preparing Your Heart for His. Harris contends that one must begin with a new attitude, viewing love, purity, and singleness from God's perspective rather than thinking that love and romance are to be enjoyed "solely for recreation.

I am a youth pastor and reject this book as helpful. I read it as a year-old and it skewed my view for years as to how to find a spouse. I'm 29 now and happily married, though at age 24 had a relationship end horribly, with unneeded and drawn out pain afterward, in part I attribute to the teachings of this book that were the foundations of that relationship.
Also a bad book for teens: I am all for Christian purity. I am a youth pastor as I said. When this book emphasizes "be pure and holy", I couldn't agree more! BUT, when this book teaches that to every person you date you give a portion of your heart, I whole-heartedly disagree! Thus, the natural conclusion is for any thinking teen "I must only date one person! EITHER never allowing yourself to date someone until you know you can marry them which is the real point of dating, isn't it? The fundamental basis for this book is flawed. My entire generation of Christians have been scared to date and thus struggling to find spouses because of books like this one and "When God Writes Your Love Story.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. There are better books on Christian relationships than Harris' book. I was reluctant to write a review until I learned Harris himself is now indirectly involved in a sex scandal that caused him to step down from his pastoral work.

As I read the book, I thought to myself, "this reads like some kid in high school writing stuff down and who can't think coherently. I knew it was scam book, and at the time of its publication it was the latest rage in some churches.
One zealous loudmouth at church preached it as "God's way" for everyone. He and his girl friend followed it to the letter, evangelized with it for a while until they got divorced 4 years later. Should Christians Kiss dating goodbye? The Bible doesn't give a simple formula for courtship. If anything I've been struck by the variety of ways God unites couples, and sometimes its pretty sordid. God had Hosea marry a whore, God killed Ezekiel's cherished wife, God united Isaac with Rebecca through a miracle, Jacob fell in love with Rachel's beauty, God had Esther herded into a kings harem, Solomon had wives and concubines, and Ruth spruced herself up and laid down at Boaz's feet while he was about to sleep.
Godly men like Jeremiah and Daniel did not find wives. More Info Add To Wishlist.

I am a middle aged. I have just come through a bad marriage and am determined not to repeat the same mistakes I had made in previous dating experiences that led me to not truly know the man I was marrying. I had tried dating again, only to be completely turned off by the situations I found myself in. I had heard of this book in the past, but had never looked at it for myself. Then a good male friend told me that he was reading it and it had been helping him.
