Joshua Harris's first book, written when he was only 21, turned the Christian singles scene upside down...and people are still talking. More than 800,000 copies later, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, with its inspiring call to sincere love, real purity, and purposeful singleness, remains the benchmark for books on Christian dating. Now, for the first time since its release, the national #1 bestseller has been expanded with new content and updated for new readers. Honest and practical, it challenges cultural assumptions about relationships and provides solid, biblical alternatives to society's norm.

Tired of the game? Kiss dating goodbye.

Going out? Been dumped? Waiting for a call that doesn’t come? Have you tasted pain in dating, drifted through one romance or, possibly, several of them?

Ever wondered, Isn’t there a better way?

I Kissed Dating Goodbye shows what it means to entrust your love life to God. Joshua Harris shares his story of giving up dating and discovering that God has something even better—a life of sincere love, true purity, and purposeful singleness.

This book surpassed my expectations! My best friend had already read it, and she said she really liked it so I figured I would too. Just for fun, I read the reviews on Amazon. I was shocked when I saw how many horrible reviews there were! I became more worried going into reading it, nervous that I would not enjoy and would have to give a bad review.

I reviewed this book coming out of a hard break-up with my boyfriend, so I was glad I read this book then. It helped me realize what expectations I had put in past relationships and what I needed to change in myself before I even considered pursuing a relationship in the future.

I don't think I will ever stop dating, simply for the reason that I only date people I can see myself marrying. However, I do think the points in this book are very valid either way, and I plan to put them t use in the future.

I received this book free for review from Waterbrook Multnomah's Blogging for Books campaign. I was not required to post a positive review, but simply an honest one.
