With a daughter in high school and a son fast approaching the teen years, the issue of dating and relationships is an area where my husband and I want to be sure we clearly communicate our convictions and expectations. We don't just want to give a list of do's and don'ts - we want our kids to have a firm foundation in the biblical principles that underlie it all, to understand the "why". We don't want legalism - we want right choices flowing from a right heart.
So, when I was asked to consider reviewing Radical Dating: When God takes over your love life, I gladly accepted. The book, aimed at young women, offers candid insights on dating and relationships based on a solid foundation of biblical truth about the ultimate source of true love, Jesus Christ. It's actually an adaptation of a series of blog posts by three best friends at the Unlocking Femininity blog.
