This has a lot of truth to it… The whole idea of "emotional purity" probably sounds like a great idea to parents wanting to protect their kids, and it even made sense when I was being fed this through church and homeschool groups. (Yes, I went to a conference about courtship…) To this day, I'm still dealing with the effects of this indoctrination. I'm having to re-learn what a normal relationship looks like.

Among the many Christian books on family, courtship and fatherhood that I have read, I think this book has become one of my top five. While the book was intended to address fathers to encourage them to think biblically of what to look for in a man who wants to marry their daughter, nevertheless I think others can benefit from reading this book too such as single mothers evaluating those interested in their daughters, or the young man who want to become a godly husband in the future. 450 more words
