You must read this book. Dennis spoke at a dinner that I attended a few years back - before this book was written. His daughter had recently married, and Dennis played a video clip from the ceremony. The clip focused on the tributes that the bride and groom gave to their parents. His daughter spoke of the deep love and respect that she had for her parents. And she went on to thank her dad for all of the father-daughter dates, and for loving her enough to INTERVIEW all of her dates. There was not a dry eye in the room. This book has been waiting to be written. I also recommend Passport 2 Purity by Dennis and Barbara Rainey.

This book helped me realize the most important job I have as a Dad of two daughters. I've often wondered what I would do when my daughter was ready to date - and now I know. His interviewing techniques are simple and easy for any Dad to do. I've used this once and the "interview" went so well for both me and the young man that I plan to use it everytime.
One important thing you need to know is, you need to have a discussion with your daughter before hand. She needs to reguard you as her protector.

I wish this book had been around when my 2 daughters began dating. Unfortunately, it wasn't but now that it is available I bought so I could give it to my daughter who now has 2 beautiful daughters of her own. It will be helpful to her and her husband in dealing with the dating issue when it arrives. Dennis Rainey and his wife Barbara have both written books that are very helpful with lifes issues.

We are a long way off from dating, but it was great to learn new ways to approach things before they start. My husband was really impressed as well. We have passed this book to several friends as well.

I told my daughters from when they were small that when they dated, their dates would first have to date me. I learned this little rule from listening to a Tony Evans sermon on the matter. That's about all I had. I found this book after my first daughter had begun to date. Before that, I winged the "interview" (I called it a date) with the suiter from what I had learned over the years. I did okay. Had I read this book, I would have had a lot more to think about. I have it for my second daughter though!

I didn't agree with all the rules and guidelines that Rainey chose; each parent must draw the lines where they feel right. But on the whole, the book was filled with a great deal of wisdom.

It's also a really short book. Takes no time to read.

I bought this for my husband...we regularly listen to Dennis Rainey's radio show. It was a good read and we will probably read it again a few times over the next few years...Our daughter is only 3yrs old but we want to be prepared!

You need to read this even if your daughter is out of the home. It will be great information for you to pass on to another Dad with a daughter, who hasn't heard of this book.
