It was written for Christian young people by a Christian young person, on a topic that every young person was interested in – how to find that special someone.
Aug 3, 2019 UPDATE: This past month Josh Harris used his Instagram account to announce he was rejecting God, separating from his wife, and endorsing the LGBTQ lifestyle.
The review below is of a documentary he made last year, while still a professing Christian, in which he took a critical look at the book that first made him famous, “I Kissed Dating Goodbye.” While the film’s director, Jessica Van Der Wyngaard, is also critical of his book, she is worried that, in light of Harris’s apostasy, Christians will now think it dangerous or wrong to ask hard questions, lest doing so lead to the same sort of turning away from God.
He boldly says what needs to be said, but never writes graphically of sex, etc. In this excellent look at the Christian love-life, Harris gives believers a deeply needed lesson: that a relationship doesn't need to be "romantic" to be healthy.
He shows how singleness is a gift from God while praising and upholding the chastity of saving romance for the married life.
