Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good book It took some other aspects on Christian dating than I've read in other books, and has some valuable thoughts, but there are also themes that may be obvious to the reader already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Job! I have read a lot of Christian relationship and dating books and I found "Boundaries in Dating" to be very insightful and bring a very fresh approach to relationships in dating. As much as it is about relationships, it targets personal growth by learning how to set appropriate boundaries for yourself! Very well done! I am about to buy a few of their other books now!

From Our Editors

The dating game is a convoluted and tricky endeavour constantly being changed by social values and ever-altering attitudes. To make sense of it all, award winning authors Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Towsend wrote Boundaries in Dating. This book is designed for singles who want to achieve a more fulfilling understanding of this ancient ritual. Being able to determine how far one should go emotionally and physically with a certain individual is not always easy to discern. This and many more topics are covered in this useful and unique book.
