Have faith. A little unstable, but awesome.
We got along great. I mean, any other guy who wore scarves like that? He'd be laughed out of this school. Not Abe. He'd beat someone almost as badly as you would. In fact I gave him a surprised look. Abe said he liked me. But he also made it clear what he'd do to me if I ever hurt you or did anything bad.
Then, just like that, he switched to some random, happy topic.
I like the guy, but he's scary. It is customary to begin a series of dates with a great deal of entertainment, a moderate amount of food, and the merest suggestion of affection. As the amount of affection increases, the entertainment can be reduced proportionately.

Right after a break-up. Stuart has to offer as he talks about what it means to make such commitments. I read this book as a single person, and I guess I found the "Single" chapters to be more looking towards a future in one of the other stages, and not as much as I would have liked about enjoying this stage, and the possibility of it being permanent.
Though I will say that this section fit well into the format of this book.
I really appreciated that this book has a firm biblical grounding into relationships, and I often found myself agreeing enthusiastically to its advice, as it matched many of my own conclusions along those lines.
And he is firm on topics that many people these days are trying to blur. Overall, a well written read, entertaining and engaging, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I would happily recommend this book, because of how Mr. Stuart skillfully uses his own experience and those of his friends, to share biblical wisdom on the many stages and relationships in our lives.

So So So good and packed with scriptural truth and insight into our modern approach to relationships.
It also manages to steer clear of the Christian sex-talk cheese that seems to show up in youth settings a lil more often than we care to admit i. Definitely recommend to any believer regardless of relationship status that has ever wondered what God would have to say about modern relationships.

While the word dating is not in the Bible, Ben pulled many verses about evaluation, Christian life, and relationships to base his arguments. He expounded upon his points with real life examples. The examples were sometimes cheesy, but the prior points he made were beneficial.
Jan 16, Abigail rated it it was amazing. I would recommend this book before many others on the same subject.

Im so thankful that God introduced me to Pastor Ben Stuart and sent me this book at the right place and the right time. I could write a whole book trying to unpack the wisdom, scripture, and truth that are here but for now, I hope the five stars is enough indication.
Nov 28, Bradley Mumme rated it liked it. Very good.
This book is extremely practical. Easy read and packed full of challenging checkmarks on what makes a great relationship. Aug 07, Bethany rated it it was amazing. Every season of life. Whether there are no prospects on the horizon or if you need to recalibrate in a present relationship. This book is biblical relationship gold. What a beautifully written book!!!! So refreshing and encouraging. Stuarts own experiences set a high standard, and the Bible stories used in reference were broken down in such a way that they absolutely complimented every point he was making.
I also appreciate the emphasis on the importance and even permanence of the single season.
Single, Dating, Engaged, Married: Navigating Life and Love in the Modern Age
Everyone should read this book!! Apr 09, Hannah rated it it was ok. Ben Stuarts book was succinct and to the point to narrate life single, dating, engaged, and married as a Christian. While Stuart does detail these specific seasons in life well, the language he uses is stereotypically gendered and childish that you wouldnt know he did college ministry. I appreciate his sentiments, but his theology does not seem robust, nor does it add to the conversation about life in romantic non-platonic relationships.
This book is a great starting point for new believers on relationships, but I would not suggest this to any other group of people.
Jan 16, Emily rated it it was amazing. Excellent book. I wish I had had some of his advice when I was younger.
If you have young adult kids or friends that are in the single, dating stages of life this is well worth their time. It was also a great reminder about the purpose of marriage.

Mar 25, Rebecca added it. Unexpectedly one of my all-time favorite books. Dec 27, Paris Guo rated it really liked it.
Great book, offering a lot of insights and wisdom. I would highly suggest this to young Christian adults. The minuscule amount of truth in this book drowns in immature theology. Incredible read that encourages you in whatever stage of life you are in.
Ben Stuart not only uses Case Studies from people in the Bible to encourage, but will also use stats from our modern world. This book is one of my favorite books to read, and reading it more than once is a must!
Nov 30, Jennifer Wells rated it it was amazing. This is a great book for navigating all forms of a godly relationship in Christ. I am not usually a fan of dating books or books that remind me that Im still not married, but this was great.

I highly recommend this book! Ben Stuart, the author, made me laugh out loud when reading several times because he added great humor-that was TRUE-throughout the book.
But I'm glad I finally picked this up. I couldn't put it down. It's not meant to be a one-size-fits-all way to finding love nor is it all solely about Ben. It's so much more. The thing I love most about this book is that he spends much of it focusing on guiding principles that are very deeply rooted in scripture.
And he doesn't just throw a verse at you, he really digs deep on the context surrounding it and why it's important. He pairs it with a mountain of insightful wisdom he's gained over the years - and he speaks to how these principles function within the modern dating world i.
One of my favorite passages: "You are trying to customize your order to get what you think is best for you. But this is not how you date. Because we are looking for a person to love, not a product to consume. I also love that Ben doesn't stop at getting the ring but continues to talk about what a godly marriage looks like and functions years after the wedding. This book is great for all stages of life. It's amazing the godly wisdom that's packed into it. Oct 17, Morgan rated it really liked it.
