About the book:

While most Christians agree to seek purity and save sex for marriage, few have been given a blueprint for how that should affect their view of dating and love. In I Kissed Dating Goodbye, Joshua Harris sets out to expose the "Seven Habits of Highly Defective Dating", and offers a realistic outline of how to have a biblical vision of marriage. Harris contends that one must begin with a new attitude, viewing love, purity and singleness from God's perspective rather than thinking that love and romance are things to be enjoyed "solely for recreation". In such well-named chapters as "Guarding Your Heart" and "What Matters at Fifty", Harris encourages the reader to look at one's character rather than revelling in infatuation and to regard love as a truly selfless, biblical act rather than a feeling. Harris refutes the concept that we are victims of "falling in love" (that it is beyond our control), saying that "God wants us to seek guidance from scriptural truth, not feeling. Smart love looks beyond personal desires and the gratification of the moment. It looks at the big picture: serving others and glorifying God". Before you roll your eyes, moaning that this sounds terribly unromantic, know that Harris does a superb job of couching his convictions in the sincere belief that if we are purposeful in our singleness and date with integrity, a fulfilled marriage awaits us--in God's timing. --Jill Heatherly
