    Bringing God into your dating relationships, July 15, 2001
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Boundaries in Dating: How Healthy Choices Grow Healthy Relationships (Paperback)
    “Boundaries in Dating” is a guide toward dating intentionally, intended for those who wish to have some spiritual guidance in their dating relationships. It helps to answer in part questions that should be a part of any dating relationship: where is God in all of this, and what role does God play in our dating relationship? How do I reflect God’s values in my approach toward dating?
    In Part 1, the authors recommend the approach of “taking God on a date” with you. They encourage requiring and embodying truth in dating relationships, guard against repeating the past, and remind that “dating won’t cure a lonely heart,” for that role belongs to God. (Additional spiritual reading, such as Henri J. M. Nouwen’s “The Inner Voice of Love,” support the theme of addressing needs and loneliness from a spiritual perspective as a foundation to addressing them from a relational perspective.) Part 2 examines character discernment of one’s dating partner, and Part 3 examines self-reflection, particularly the issues of clinging to false hope (when a dating partner’s actions don’t support stated intentions) and the role of blame. Part 3 is particularly valuable in assigning responsibilities to roles in the dating relationship, sorting out what’s your responsibility and what responsibility lies with your dating partner.
    Chapter 17, “Set Appropriate Physical Limits,” is the best discussion I’ve ever read on the long-term, destructive effect of premarital sex on our emotional, spiritual, and relational well-being. Far more than being merely prohibitive, it examines deeply the importance of delaying self-gratification. It provides a refreshingly thought-provoking and countercultural reminder that God’s ways are not the ways of the culture in which we live, and what a challenge it is to integrate these two ways of life, should one choose to do so.
    “Boundaries in dating is about becoming a truthful, caring, responsible, and free person who also encourages growth in those she is in contact with,” the authors write. “Your dating life should be a powerful change agent for you.” Countering the common assumption that dating is limited to “finding the right one,” Cloud and Townsend take the spiritual approach that dating and relating is just as much about “learning about your own issues, how they affect others, and what to do about them.” That dating should bring us closer to God seems to be the authors’ ultimate goal in writing this book.

    This review is from: Boundaries in Dating: How Healthy Choices Grow Healthy Relationships (Paperback)
    Many Christian authors insist that courting or betrothal systems are God’s way for us to avoid pain and find a “soul mate.” These methods are often based on a dubious patchwork of Bible verses or an adaptation of Old Testament cultural norms. We can learn from the past, but duplicating it is not the answer. For those Christians who live in 21st century culture and deal with age-old relational issues, “Boundaries in Dating” is a practical resource.

    Drs. Cloud and Townsend wrote “Boundaries in Dating” in part to rebut the book “I Kissed Dating Goodbye,” by Joshua Harris. While they applaud Mr. Harris’ intention to help people forsake sin and find a good spouse, they are skeptical of his anti-dating conclusions. The authors claim that character, and not a method, is the real key to finding a quality partner. If you have good character, then any matchmaking methodology will work. However, if you have relational problems or are a bad person, then no method will overcome these handicaps. Indeed, one who is deficient in character but skilled in manipulation may corrupt a method for his or her advantage. I’ve seen too many peers who jumped through all the typical Christian pre-wedding hoops, only to wind up divorced or in troubled marriages.

    The authors acknowledge that most folks have hang-ups that make romance difficult. And unfortunately, there are wolves in sheep’s clothing that must be avoided. Therefore, boundaries are a necessary part of a healthy dating relationship. “Boundaries in Dating” describes where boundaries are needed, ways to set them, and how to enforce the consequences when they are violated. Some complain that boundaries are a way to control other people. However, the authors view them as tools that reveal good character or uncover impure motives. Boundaries define areas of sensitivity and conviction, and whether or not they are respected tells a lot about a person. For example, if a gal lovingly acknowledges a guy’s physical affection boundary, then she is demonstrating virtue by her respect for him. However, if a man continues to demean his girlfriend in public despite her protests, his disrespect shows that he has internal problems. Of course, good character does not equate to perfection. A boundary violator who repents and demonstrates growth is still a good bet, while a chronic boundary-crasher should be let go.

    Like many people, I was raised in a dysfunctional setting. I didn’t even become a Christian until I was seventeen. When I reached adulthood, I crashed and burned when dating other flawed people. Courting did not fix my internal problems or prevent them from manifesting, and involving the woman’s parents in the process didn’t shield me from getting hurt by her hang-ups. So I’m not impressed when obsolete marriage practices are defined as the only God-sanctioned way to gain a spouse. As one who is currently dating, holier-than-thou hedges just don’t do it for me. Instead, I desire prayer and wise counsel to help me glorify God within my cultural mode of relationship. Good friends, wise mentors, and books like “Boundaries in Dating” help fill that need.

    My Christian teenage daugher has many Christain friends who have bought TOTALLY into the book “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” by Josh Harris. One of them gave the book to her in order (I think) to set her straight. She is a very bright, fun, thoughtful young lady who has dated and had some very good experiences with it and also rough experiences. She and I both read the book and discussed it together. It left her very distressed. She was made to feel like dating was a sin and yet, she couldn’t really understand (Biblically) why. I, too, was very bothered by the legalistic approach of that book.
    I went in search of a resource to clarify things for both my daughter and myself. I found this book and read it first before giving it to my daughter (no need to set her up for more confusion!) This book gives a wonderful and clear outline on the purposes and values of dating. It is biblically-based and sound in its information. My daughter is about halfway through reading it and as we discuss it, she is constantly saying, “now this makes sense”. I especially appreciate the empasis placed on the issue of maturity in dating and how God can use dating (if done within His boundaries) to grow her into a mature Christian woman who will have the ability to make a wise decision when the time comes for her to marry.
    She plans to share this book with all of her friends!
