I reached out to him and asked if he’d like to be a part of this review series, but since he’s in seminary now he said he couldn’t. And while mine won’t be the only critical review– there are plenty on Amazon and Goodreads– I think it may be the first in-depth review that gets down into the trenches and examines the it’s a book about following Christ and what that means for all our relationships with others– romantic or not.
Because of all of that, I’m going to do my best to keep in mind that what he said in 1997 may not represent his views now (although I am working with the updated 2003 edition). Joshua writes, “Every relationship for a Christian is an opportunity to love another person as God loved us.” That sums up the book’s message Once we embrace this principle, the rest is just details. I’m going to end up massively disagreeing because the rest is almost absolutely not “just details.” I agree with the idea that every relationship is an opportunity to show the love of God to a person.

I was the eldest daughter of a conservative Christian minister, and my parents did everything “right.” I was in church and Sunday school every week, part of a local AWANA club memorizing Bible verses, and homeschooled in a conservative group led by other religious parents.
