(DISCLAIMER: The publisher gave me an advance copy of this book for free for the sole purpose of this review. However, no one is paying me to write this review. Now back to the review.)
Over the past couple of years I have had the privilege of getting to know Renee Johnson-Fisher. She has definitely talked me down from the ledge on more than one occasion (figuratively speaking, of course, but close enough to the real thing). I am privileged to consider her a friend, and I am privileged to review her brand new book, Not Another Dating Book.
As the title suggests, the book is not your typical "If you have sex, you will get pregnant and die" crap that you read in most Christian dating books. True, a lot of the devotions in this book are about fleeing from fornication, but it's not the entire book. The devotions in this book talk about what to look for in a mate, how to maintain a relationship, and how our relationship reflect God's relationship with us.
Renee is at her best when she writes about her history with dating and relationships. She's not afraid to talk about past relationships gone bad, and how she struggled with singleness for years before she met her husband Marc (which was when she was half-way finished with the book).
