Christian Dating in a Godless World

About this item

It’s typical these days for a couple to meet, sleep together after the third date, and then get married within two years.

If you’re satisfied with this, then I don’t think you’ll like this book. But if you think the dating scene has gone awry and would prefer that your relationships fortify rather than undermine your dignity and self-respect, then this book is for you.

In these pages, the wise Fr. Morrow will help you create a plan of action for your dating life that is drawn from his own dating experience (he entered the seminary at age 34 after many years of dating) and from his considerable pastoral work as a chaplain for Christian singles groups.

He’ll show you what to look for in a potential spouse – and the tell-tale signs that you should walk away now. You’ll learn how to get rid of a bad date, and you’ll discover the one thing that stands out among all successful relationships. Fr. Morrow will show you how to tame your senses and temper your imagination, and how to show affection without going too far.

You’ll also learn:

  • What love is – and what it isn’t
  • How to deal with loneliness and uncertainty
  • The unique roles of men and women in Christian dating
  • Seven steps to finding Mr. or Mrs. Right
  • Where to go to strengthen your chances of finding a good Catholic
  • How to quickly end bad relationships
  • Three rules for communicating dissatisfaction gently and diplomatically
  • When to share past sins – and when not to
  • The six steps to marriage preparation

It’s better to be single and wish you were married, than to be married and wish you were single. Read these pages, and you’ll be given the wise advice you need to develop deep and lasting relationships that help you grow in love for each other and for God.

"Aside from its main target audience, this book is also great for Catholic parents, priests, those in high school, and anyone who works with Catholic young adults. I hope that many people reading this review, no matter what their opinion on courtship, give this book a chance and see what they think for themselves!"

Yes, a priest can have valuable dating advice!
Fr. Morrow offers valuable insight and advice on understanding love and the lack there of with his seven steps to finding Mr. or Mrs. Right! It shares rules for communicating and how to get out of a relationship if it is going poorly or just doesn't feel right. There is also a chapter on the six steps to marriage prep if you are able to find that right one. His advice is solid and I think many will find a real blessing!

Excellent book with great advice for dating men and women
Excellent book with great advice for dating men and women, or those who are hoping to be dating soon. If you are a Catholic wanting dating advice that is consistent with Catholic teachings, this is a great place to start. The book is enjoyable, interesting, and easy to read. Fr Morrow has a good sense of humor and lots of experience with young people (and his own dating experience before he was in seminary) and what information people need to make good choices in choosing a spouse or when to walk away from a relationship. Lots of solid relationship advice.

Protestant approved
Like when I read G. K. Chesterton, there's so much to appreciate and agree with, even though as a nondenominational Protestant I certainly have some significant differences with Father Morrow. The book is well-written, direct, honest to the point of blunt, and refreshingly practical.

Fantastic read for pre-dating, dating, or engaged couples
Very good advice for younger and older adults both starting or looking at changing their dating patterns. Gave a copy to my friend as well.
