Publisher's Summary

It's Time to Do a Dating 180

Face it, your attitudes about marriage and the path to marriage are probably wrong. Some you've inherited, some you've simply bought - hook, line, and sinker - and some you've made up yourself. They have translated into bad action (or no action) in dating and relationships. But it's not too late; you can break the cycle of dating dysfunction and learn to honor marriage, marry well, and live intentionally while you wait. As a single still walking out her own story, Lisa proves it's possible. The Dating Manifesto is neither a cheesy formula for finding a spouse nor a feel-good book about how the person for you is "out there" if you only "believe." Instead it's a challenge to wise up, own your issues, and chart a bold new course for your relationship future.

    "Modern and biblical"

    The audio is well voiced. The content is very matter of fact and relatable. It points out how to approach dating with a biblical God honoring mindset.

    "Encouraging book about dating with a Christian perspective"

    I enjoyed hearing the audiobook format for this book. I would recommend this book for both men and women who are looking to get a different perspective on dating and singleness in the church. Lisa Anderson has a lot of wisdom rooted in her personal life and experiences through the boundless ministry.

    "Perfect Timing"

    I came across this book during the perfect time in my life. As someone in her late 20's that wants to be married and have kids in the near future, this was very much needed. Apart from being funny this book is honest. I loved it and will be recommending it to others. I will be listening to this book again to catch anything I may have missed.
    If dating is in your future or marriage is on your mind....This is a must read.

    "Elementary"

    You wouldn't read a book about from an author who had never done ______ but claimed to be an authority. Reading a book on how to be marriage material from a never-married 40 year old is the same thing.

    Nothing in here was overly insightful unless the listener has next to no experience with dating.

    "Loved Lisa's modern and direct approach to Biblical marriage and the path to getting there!"

    Such a sweet book, full of honesty and blunt reality. I loved the way Lisa challenged both the men and women to think about marriage now, and to be proactive in their dating lives. So much more than a how-to book, she shared practical steps to take to start dating biblically and to fixing our eyes on God's plans. 10 out of 10 would recommend!

    "Churches Take Heed"

    I really enjoyed this book, especially chapter 13. One of the fellow singles at church will be meeting with our pastor regarding restarting our singles ministry, and I strongly suggested her listening to chapter 13 as a means to identify our needs as a group. I am also pretty impressed that I got through this book in just a couple of days by listening in the car and periodically while at work. I was able to capture a lot of information amidst my school work, duties at work and additional leisure reading.

    "The narrator is a distraction"

    The book is good, and offers a lot of interesting and helpful insight the narrator, however, is awful. She over acts the reading. It distracts from the book and comes off as a bad theater monologue.

    "Filled with Religious Garbage"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The content stared off good then led into a ton of religious content.


    Has The Dating Manifesto turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Having a Jesus this and a God that was too distracting from the message. Save your religious talk for other people who have drank the cool aid.

    "Disappointed"
    What would have made The Dating Manifesto better?

    Looking forward to a very good thoughtful listen but was disappointed - I felt annoyed whilst listening that this was a book written by someone who hadn't found a partner by the age of 30, why should I listen to her advise?


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Anderson again?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Jaimee Draper’s performance?

    Too good to be true


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No
