I received this book from BookLook for reviewing. All opinions are my own.
There’s a whole lot of books out there about relationships. There’s also a lot that talk about being in a relationship with God. Ben Stuart tries to combine both those topics into Single, Dating, Engaged, Married: Navigating Life and Love in the Modern Age. It’s a book that takes you through these stages and what challenges they bring.
The book is broken down in four parts: single, dating, engaged, and married. Each part has chapters that relate to that specific season. It contains tips about what to do in that season but also how this all relates back to God. At the same time, it explains how we should be in a relationship with God. Each section is designed to hit on the major parts that happen in every relationship season and Biblical help on how to get through it.
I definitely enjoyed the book but I do feel like it’s more geared to young adults. It’s primarily talking about these seasons before or as they happen. I don’t feel like it will give those who have been married over 10 years and deep insight. Ben is humorous and gives a lot of his own personal examples so you can relate or understand where he’s coming from. The book is a good reminder that God needs to be part of each of these stages and we need to be more wise about how we choose a future partner. There’s a few things here and there that are new, but not much you haven’t heard. So it’s a good book to keep in your back pocket when you need a refresher and redirect yourself when getting overwhelmed about relationships.
