#45: Boy Meets Girl
I really enjoyed reading the book Boy Meets Girl by Joshua Harris. For a little background, Harris wrote the popular book for Christians called I Kissed Dating Goodbye in effort to encourage people to make the decision to give up the casual dating game and focus on serving God as a single. A few years later he followed up that book with Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello to Courtship. This book offers wisdom from the biblical perspective for those who are in or desire to be in non-casual dating relationships. Harris calls this courtship but spends a whole chapter explaining the mindset not the terminology is important. Throughout the book Harris shares several stories from his own experience courting/dating his wife and gives very practical advice centered on honoring God in any relationship to explain this mindset.
