by Joshua Harris originally came out in 1997, when I was ten and Joshua was twenty-three, although I didn’t read it until I was in college because my church considered him far too liberal.
We followed something that has more in common with betrothal and arranged marriage than it does with Joshua’s vision of “courtship,” although we both called it the same thing.
Joshua Harris's first book, written when he was only 21, turned the Christian singles scene upside down..people are still talking. Joshua Harris shares his story of giving up dating and discovering that God has something even better—a life of sincere love, true purity, and purposeful singleness.
More than 800,000 copies later, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, with its inspiring call to sincere love, real purity, and purposeful singleness, remains the benchmark for books on Christian dating. Joshua Harris is senior pastor of Covenant Life in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Timeless is the only way I can describe Joshua Harris's books.
I remember when I had first heard of this book years ago and at the time I thought, "this book is about not dating." I had no ill feelings about the book I just kind of thought this would be some suggestion of a miracle cure for dating and boy was I pleasantly surprised.Harris’s influence expanded thanks to that book, his first.He spoke at conferences, gave radio and television interviews, and proselytized about the problems of dating and the benefits of courtship, cementing his reputation as a relationships expert A lot has changed since his meteoric rise.My blog pages elaborate on this and asks if “kissing dating goodbye” is appropriate for all ages.Temporarily “kissing dating goodbye” which could also be called postponing dating might be appropriate especially for younger teenagers.
