Andy stanley series on dating
Andy Stanley doesn’t tiptoe around difficult and awkward topics, but hits them head on with honest and straightforward wisdom and insight.
He doesn’t try to soften the blow, and believe me it does feel like a punch to the gut sometimes, but he offers biblical advice without apology.
The most pointed question of the night came from a middle-aged gentleman.
” As a single, 31-year-old woman, I have sometimes wondered, what’s the big deal about abstinence? I’m sure many of you have heard this advice before. I was sitting in an all-girls’ chapel at my Bible College.This concept was a bit eye opening for me and debunked the excuse that I’ve heard people use so many times before in regards to sex: “How can we get married without having sex? ” Stanley goes into much more depth when it comes to the topic of sex in Chapter 8 and 9.Without giving too much away, there was one question that he posed that has had me thinking ever since I finished the book.The truth of the matter is they are right; we can only change ourselves.I we aren’t careful, this good advice can bring with it some shame, too.This book offers something different than all the others.In the very first chapter, “The Right Person Myth,” Stanley discusses how we are all on the search for the right person.It should be no surprise then that in Stanley’s new book The New Rules for Love, Sex, and Dating,he is just as clear, just as blunt and just as candid when it comes to the topics that are on most of our minds as single people—love, sex and dating.I’ve read numerous dating-esque books throughout my life, some of which were bought for me by my parents, given to my by pastors and mentors or ones I purchased in my own attempt to wade through this mania.Grow in the areas that you need to mature in, and allow God to sand off the places that are rough. * Find The New Rules for Love, Sex, and Datingon Amazon.Just don’t get caught up in thinking that perfection (or the pursuit of it) will bring you a significant other.
