I really appreciated Andy's honesty and his assessment of the different mindsets of men and women and how culture and the world can lead us astray. This book taught me to examine myself and my patterns of behavior and motivated me to exchange bad choices for biblical ones, as it pertains to relationships. I highly recommend this book!
But, Stu did a great job. The book was wonderful and full of great info. It really made me think. Even if u don't think u can commit to the one year plan, it's an amazing learning tool. As a mom, it also gave me some great advice to pass on. Things I wish I was told, and things I wish someone would have told the boys I had dated. And if u don't like it, as Andy wrote himself, there's always ebay lol.
awesome book will read over again
this is a must for anyone who is single newly single or going through a divorce and is interested in entering the dating arena this all makes sense we need to get to know who we are and what we need to change in our lives before we get into a new relationship and it's all based on what the Lord wants for us and I'm sure this can't get any better than that
No I would not. Andy Stanley is a poor bible teacher who as the book of Jude would say "preaches what their itching ears want to hear"
Used a little bit more scripture.
One of the better books, but narration isn't up to the abilities of the actual book author.
The time has been perfect for me because I committed to celibacy a little over a month ago and didn't really have a plan to stick to it long term. God is amazing and he's intentional. The audio held my attention and I completed it in 2 days. I am going to recommend this audio to my singles ministry at church and definitely to my young adult children.
Great though hard truths are shared. If the truths are taken to heart, much pain can be avoided and relationships can be enjoyed more fully. It helps that there's quite a bit of wit throughout the book.
Become the person the person you are looking for is looking for! This is one of the great ideas that will stay with me from this book. I recommend you give this book a chance. It does not take a long investment and it will be worth it.
