If you’re a parent sorting through what you’re going to do with your teenager, thinking through the positions articulated in this volume would be a helpful exercise.
If you find yourself caught in the crossfire between those who have kissed dating goodbye and advocate arranged marriages, betrothal, or courtship on the one side, versus those who kiss on the first date, those who date if it’s purposeful, and those who just wish they could get a date on the other, this is the book for you.
UPDATE: A friend of mine who is a singles pastor at a large church asked me to elaborate on this book, so here goes: it’s sort of a “5 views” on how to handle one’s self as a single person. The editor has each of the authors address three situations: a high school couple being encouraged to date one another, a college couple—each new believers with unbelieving parents, and a 30 year old single female looking for a husband. The authors comment on how, in their view, each of these situations should be dealt with. I think this would be an excellent resource for you and the folks in your ministry.
