Anyone that follows his advice will be relationally successful. Sex is wonderfully so it should be pursued but sex is powerful so it should be revered. Quotes like that along with others is a great apologetic that gets behind the why of having a Christian view of love, sex and dating is beneficial but here comes the problem A couple of cons: The only thing I can say is new about this book is its ability to talk about A couple of positives: Really great wisdom for a De-christianized nation.
It strips its purpose by directing the only meaning of marriage as being temporally beneficial but not God glorifying. This is painfully obvious. Finally thoughts: I am not saying that Andy does not believe the things he does not mention. However he does not take this approach with churches. He suggest to find the biggest church in your area and it just has to be big for a good reason.
Pragmatism will lead people to a form of godliness that not only denies his power but his deserved glory. Apr 08, Christine Baptiste rated it it was amazing. The book you need to read if you want to understand the value of abstaining from sex until marriage. It was written in a non preachy non judgemental way that makes you want to continuing reading even if you didn't agree at first.
Mar 22, Veronica rated it it was amazing Shelves: non-fictionromancebiblicallibrary-book-challengenew-author-to-you Every single, from teens and up, should read this book! Great advice; really makes you think about how you view relationships and finding the "right" person and what you're doing to become the right person.
Especially good for those just starting to date so they can stop mistakes before they make them, but it's never too late to start fresh! Apr 29, Stephanie rated it it was amazing.
When I meet the right person, everything will be all right. This way of thinking creates trouble in our dating lives and sets us up for trouble in marriage. In this message, Andy challenges us to ask ourselves Am I the person the person I'm looking for is looking for? And he previews God's list of behaviors that will lead to success in dating and marriage.
Amazing read! I will reference this book for a long time. Jan 30, Amariah Dixon rated it it was amazing. This book is informative and has sound info about dating. The advice Andy Stanley gives is very helpful. I highly recommend this book! Andy Stanley is also a good speaker. View all 6 comments.

THE NEW RULES FOR LOVE, SEX & DATING # Designer Sex INTRODUCTION Culture convinces us - and sometimes we convince ourselves - that sex is only physical.

As for this book - good stuff. Everyone can get at least something from it I'm sure. And the whole "becoming the OK here's the thing - Andy Stanley just really gets under my skin. And the whole "becoming the right person" is good advice, I'm just not sure the motivation for becoming a better person ought to be to find a spouse.
As for me, well, I already held all of the beliefs expressed in this book. And to have everything presented as "you don't know about any of this, let me reveal to you the secrets of good relationships" just didn't fly with me, since I've grown up knowing all this. That's not to say the ideas presented in this book are bad, like I said I already hold them. It's just the way they're presented seemed a little condescending. Do I recommend this book?
There's some good stuff in it. Do I think it'll drastically change your view of relationships? I can't say. It didn't for me, but then again I'm an oddity. Note: someone I respect gave me this book to read, and that's why I did. Feb 09, Brandi Peek rated it really liked it. I would really say that I would rate this a 4. I dont feel like at my age there was a lot of new information in this book, more like stuff I had to figure out the hard way over the years.
It would have been great if someone had explained all the ideas and concepts to the early me in the way that Andy Stanley communicates it. He does a good job of being blunt and straightforward about love and all the wrong choices we tend to make based on wrong thinking.
I also think he communicates this in a I would really say that I would rate this a 4. The book can seem repetitive at times, but I think that is the point.
I feel like his insight and advice reaches far beyond a romantic love. It is relatable to all relationships. I would highly recommend this book. Obviously, the content is similar to the sermon series he does, but it expands areas that needed expanding.
See a Problem?
Stanley is very forthright and blunt which I found both helpful and intimidating. He does not sugar coat anything. He is a good communicator as is clear if you have listened to him speakhe uses language that is easy to understand - he is direct.
Could not recommend this book highly enough to single people, but also would recommend welpppppppppppppp wish I read this when I was about Could not recommend this book highly enough to single people, but also would recommend it to anyone for it's take on 1 Corinthians 13 and how to apply that to real life. After all Apr 27, Bobby Jones rated it it was amazing. The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating should be the handbook for parents and middle schoolers to talk about all three subjects and more!
If you have a middle schooler high schooler, college student, kid in their 30's still living in the basementyou should pay them well to read a chapter a week and then sit down with you to discuss what they learned, how they will apply it to their life and allow them to ask questions.
If "the talk" was nothing more than a minute awkward conversation The New Rules for Love, Sex and Dating should be the handbook for parents and middle schoolers to talk about all three subjects and more!
If "the talk" was nothing more than a minute awkward conversation or worse, a one hour class at middle school with the health teacher Read this book. And then pay your kids to read it and help them to become the person the person they're looking for is looking for!

Are these words interconnected in any way or do they stand alone in your mind? Pastor Andy Stanley of the Atlanta based North Point Ministries provides a candid approach on how to effectively date. Nov 16, SethGyan rated it liked it. Great ideas especially focusing on building yourself to attract who you want I don't think his idea of waiting for the right one is helpful. I think you have to search whiles continually developing yourself especially after the one year abstinence he advocates.
Secondly he doesn't show how having sexual partners before marriage affect future relationships except for anecdotes where partners do not feel exclusive because of past affairs of their spouse. Sep 06, Regina Kuntz rated it it was amazing. I especially loved chapter 5 describing all the attributes of love. I highly recommend this book for anyone of any age or stage of life, especially those who have been previously married and wanting to better understand what went wrong and how to increase the chance of a better relationship next time.
Jun 27, S. Palmer rated it it was amazing. I went into this book thinking it would be pages of the talk but it wasnt. I was surprised and happy to see that it goes over all of the facets of relationships. I have been to many talks and bible studies over sexual purity, but I still had numerous times in this book that I thought, Wow, I didnt know that! Thats really smart! Anyway, Andy Stanley continues to hit the hard points and give hope. Dec 17, Caitlin Dean rated it did not like it.
I got about three chapters in and I'm giving up. There's something about this book that is really bothering me. I think it's his tone of voice through his lectures. I was already wary reading a Christian based book on dating, when I myself don't align with a lot of Christian values. And I couldn't shake his patriarchal "Father knows best" tone of voice. Maybe it's just not the right time in my life to read this book.
Jan 17, Judy rated it it was amazing. This book stretched me. I wish someone had given me this book years ago. Before I got married. I'm going to pass this book on to all my friends. Thanks Andy for writing a message that gets to the heart of matters.
I needed some hard truth.
Bless you. Dec 26, Shreeram Bhattarai rated it liked it. The book was written properly but lacking the factor which keeps you engaging with the books. There was only one main idea which is being the person what you are looking for. I like the concept of preserving the sex for the marriage for better relationship as I am doing the same.

The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps. I implore all of you to take a step back and re-read that sentence at least 11 times over, its pretty impactful.

Invest in the person you are or desire to be versus the person you think you need or want We all have one of a million.
Great read! Dec 24, Rachel rated it liked it Shelves: reading-plan. I would give this book 3. It gave me a better perspective on dating as well as how to approach dating. I learned that while it is important to have standards it is more important to become the right person. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it whether you're single or in a relationship.
Sep 14, Maui Rochell rated it really liked it Shelves: ebookself-helpchristian-booksnon-fiction. A good but not-so-recommended read if you're not matured enough to take it. Nowadays, many of us are not taught how to handle relationships properly.
