Read i kissed dating goodbye online Dating chat shqip
As a single Christian female approaching 30 I began to question the effectiveness of the book’s teachings in my own life.
I was doing everything right, where was my future husband?
Following is the premise for the project: In 1997 a 21 year old single Christian wrote a revolutionary book on dating.
This book would go on to be an international bestseller and catapult its unsuspecting author, Joshua Harris, into the Christian spotlight.
It was during this time that I began my MA in Theological Studies at Regent College.
Also at this time I felt compelled to respond to the growing frustrations I saw in my fellow believers who grew up reading books such as I Kissed Dating Goodbye and were now feeling let down by its teachings.
The book sold more than a million copies and some Christians followed it almost as if it were gospel.
A couple of years ago, Harris left the American megachurch he had been pastoring and moved his family to Vancouver.
At the time it had a profoundly positive impact on me.While I was still in high school and beginning life as a young adult, its teachings made total sense.I was part of a church culture that was also affected by the influence of the “anti-dating” craze that was sweeping the (evangelical) church at large, thanks to I Kissed Dating Goodbye.“turned the Christian singles scene upside down” and continues to shape the consciousness of how Christians view singleness, dating and the roadmap to marriage.Through the connective platform of social media, Harris has been dealt a battering of online criticism from disenchanted Christians in recent years.
