Devotions for dating couples building a foundation
The book itself has some gems that became devalued and overlooked by moments of bad theology, strained analogies, shallow biblical readings, unwelcome opinions, and just ill-fitting illustrations.
It definitely didn't seem like this book was written to young urban Christians.
This book, though it was not enjoyed as much for what it was, had some great value for our couples group as well as the one-on-one conversations with my girlfriend. My fiance's proposal even stemmed from a discussion based upon one particular chapter, so for that alone, it was a worthwhile read.
I like the format: about two pages of daily reading for Monday through Friday, then 6-10 questions to discuss on Saturday. Definitely very inspiring, convicting, and helpful. May however be geared more towards those new to their faith.
Our dating group that was reading this together had to start each meeting by clearing out everything we hated about the last chapter, but also in all of the discord with the authors, we found great conversation in disagreeing. It did exactly what it said--helped up build a solid foundation.
1 I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me. Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems, You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, (there are millions of suns left,) You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books, You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me, You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self.
