5.0 out of 5 stars Will be looking into more of Douglas Wilson's work! 14 Oct. 2016
By Zach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great book primarily discovering what the husband and father is to do in a God honoring and Christian marriage. There is a lot also written on how a marriage relationship should come together in addition to how they should continue to exist. There is a lot of direct scripture application, explanation of the author's views, and also a short story near the end that serves as good food for thought. It took me a couple of days of thought to fully understand the short story near the end but in principle it only reflects the Biblical structure for marriage. I agree with its contents fully and I will recommend this to young Christians who may be looking to starting a relationship with another. I also recommend this for unmarried Christian men and Christian fathers looking for a general idea of how to raise their children in a Biblical way.

5.0 out of 5 stars From a Student's Perspective 12 Feb. 2013
By Josh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Let me begin by saying a little bit about myself. I am a senior in a Christian school, regular church-goer, and one who is eager to learn about what the Bible has to say about God's design for Christian living in general. I have a Marriage & Family class as the Sociology course and really have never thought too much about the importance of the formation of the family. Everybody in my school knows about the importance of the family's function -they have been constantly told over and over again since day one that how a family functions is vitally important, and it is. Now that I am considered a young adult, I want to know what the Bible has to say about how I, as a young Christian man, should prepare for marriage.

That being said, I chose to read this book for a report in my class. My instructor said near the beginning of the class, "Young people, the method that you use, whether it be dating or courtship, does not matter -as long as your attitude is in the right place." Pastor Wilson opens the book with a statement that basically said any Christian who cares about what the Bible has to say about the function of the family should also care about what it has to say about the formation of families. Pastor Wilson outlines the courtship model in five basic sections: the authority of parents, the preparation of sons and daughters for courtship, the culmination of courtship, and he talks about the details of courtship. Any instance that Pastor Wilson talks about Biblical principle in courtship, he lists the Bible reference and explains the principle and how it can be applied in the modern realm of courtship.

Pastor Wilson does also look at the system of dating. He talks about what it is, what the problems with it are, and why it is not Biblical. Personally, I found it very easy to accept that dating is not a Biblical system. Pastor Wilson also explains that dating is a relationship that is outside God's covenantal protection. As he puts it, "The modern dating system does not train young people to form a relationship. It trains them to form a series of relationships. At the very least, this system is as much a preparation for divorce as it is for marriage. Whenever the other person starts to wear a little thin, you just slip out the back, Jack.

In short, this book helped me to see what exactly God's will is for young Christian couples and the Biblical way to form a Christ-centered relationship. Does method matter? Absolutely. I do believe this book helps to explain why.
4.0 out of 5 stars Doug Wilson takes on the modern system of casual dating ... 2 Aug. 2016
By Robert Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Doug Wilson takes on the modern system of casual dating and shows it to be foolish and Biblically unsuitable for Christians. I wish that he would update this work to discuss the modern "hookup" culture.

This book is too short, though, and stops before adequately addressing some questions. What about casual teenage dates? How exactly do a young man and young women get to know one another well enough to be interested in courting, but without entering the "zone of vulnerability" improperly? (This is addressed somewhat, but not well, in my opinion).

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for a 19 year old in a Christian family 21 May 2016
By AR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was meant for Christian families with kids in their late teens wanting to find a life partner, did not seem applicable for others beyond these life circumstances. Difficult to apply to modern circumstances and dating as an adult.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Fathers, Mothers, Daughters & Sons 15 Aug. 2013
By Timothy S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As a single man who has never been married, I wish I read this book years ago. Fathers will learn how to best protect their daughters and how vital their role is for their daughters in the courtship and pre-marriage process. Daughters will discover the importance of having their fathers guide them in the selection of a suitor and husband. Sons will better learn how to court a young woman under the watchful eye of her parents and realize this is meant to protect her, test him to determine if he is worthy of her hand, and aid in developing a stronger marriage. Mothers will gain the insight in how to better nurture both her sons and daughters to embrace the Biblical method of courtship. Simply a great read for anyone considering marriage or anyone with unwed children.
