My mom gave this book to me I think when I was in middle school. I was hesitant to read it at first, and it sat in my room gathering dust for a year or two. But then I finally picked it up and read it. I do not regret it. This book has some great points regarding dating, and I think it is definetely worth your time. I'm glad my mom gave it to me! I didn't agree with everything the author said, but overall, it really encouraged me to set boundaries.

how refreshing! it is great to hear a young man say out loud what many of us are thinking. the modern dating habits that have even invaded the church are so destructive. i really appreciated the author's disclaimer that this was not a "how to" book but rather his story about how he came to some conclusions about the matter. rather than asking us to do what he does he is simply asking us to re-examine why we do what we do! the follow up Boy Meets Girl about how he met his wife and their courtship is a must read also!

He is not telling you not to have fun, have friends and live single all your life! He is simply sharing how to heartbreak-proof your life through focusing on a bible prespective of courting.

I wish I had read this book as a teen. I read it as a Youth Leader to help my group avoid the drama of dating, relationships, temptation and brokenhearts that I dealt with.

You will NOT regret this book!

I really loved the part in this book where he shares the dream that he had that illustrates Jesus paying for our sins with his blood.

This book had a negative backlash which I felt was undeserved. I felt that Josh Harris was very clear about the fact that the position that he presents is not for everyone. Readers don't need to fully subscribe to his plan, but I do think this book is worth reading and reflecting on the ideas that he presents.

This book poses an excellent argument to the concept behind "dating" and the potential consequences that often occurs because of it. I believe it is a must read by parents who have children. It will allow you the opportunity to look at what our culture has accepted and lays out clearly in "words" what the emotional and physical costs are. Something to consider.

If all Christians would follow this and other books about Courtship, the Kingdom of God would be strengthened. We have met many couples that have used philosophies similar to the ones found in this book extremely successfully and have enjoyed a fruitful marriage for many years.

One of the main questions that people ask with modern courtship is "If you DON'T date around do you just 'commit' to marrying the first person who talks to you?!" I Kissed Dating Goodbye helps to answer these questions along with other valid concerns but also brings a fresh spin on the word "courtship."

I read this book when I was a teenager and was inspired. I didn't want to "date around" either. I met my husband as a "friend" that I did group activities with until we felt comfortable to "date." We met in October of 1999 and got married in December 2003. He is the love of my life and the only man I ever "dated."

This this a great book about dating. Twenty year old Joshua Harris wrote this book. As he looked at the way he treated women he dated, he was not pleased. He came up with some good suggestions on when, who, and how to date to be sure that you choose the best life partner for you.

I am really impressed by this book. I gave a copy to my teenage daughters and their friends last year and reading it, I realized that thinking and planning who and what you want your life's partner to be are much better than jumping into a situation that does not fit.
This is a great book for anyone dating and their parents too.

As the parent of two teens I wish that I had read this book before I started dating as a teen.

I got this book for my teenage son. I want to explain the right way to look for a future wife without having the experience myself. Great book for teens or divorcees re-entering the dating scene. It provides a Christian and biblical perspective on God's plan for finding a mate. Included are reasons why the world's typical dating doesn't work very well, that God has a better way. I wish I had know this perspective when I was a teen.

This is a must read for everyone who thinks dating is the way to get to know a prospective mate. When I first read the book I disagreed with everything he said. Time and wisdom has taught me otherwise.
As young as he is, Harris offers good solid arguements for why dating is not a good way to get to know the opposite sex. He offers sensible, workable alternatives to truely to develop healthy relationships without the phony games, false impressions and dangerous temptations that come with dating.
Even though I've read the book, I got it again for my teenage son to read.

Book in great condition. A little unrealistic, perhaps, but it\'s well worth the read. Provides a ray of hope in this overly sexualized society.

This book was donated to our Church Library. I don't know what to think about this man. I think he must be a graduate of BJU. I do not agree with him. This is a males point of view. I think he doesn't want to spend the money dating so he uses the Bible to justify his point of view.
