About the Author
Rick and Sharon Phillips met at a church singles group and were married twenty months later. After answering God's call to enter the ministry, Rick served as the pastor to the singles ministry in which they had met. Through their shared ministry to singles, they perceived a great need for clear biblical teaching on dating and singleness. The fruit of their ministry and of their love for singles is found in the pages of this book. They are the parents of five children and live in the upcountry of South Carolina, where Rick is senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church of Greenville, SC. He is co-editor of the Reformed Expository Commentary series and author of numerous books on the Bible and Christian living, several of which feature discussion questions written by Sharon.

The gem in this book is how the authors go back to Genesis to describe how wonderful and flawless Adam and Eve's relationship was after they were created, how it changed after The Fall, and thus how it's necessary to approach relationships with the care and understanding that this demands. They detail the ideal traits for both men and women to look for in each other and show the biblical way to progress from brothers and sisters in Christ to commitment and all the way to exchanging the vows. Very crucial to a relationship's success are the God-designed roles for each.
As a single myself in my late 20s, I consider this the very best Christian dating book and definitely recommend it to anyone searching for a spouse and perhaps who feels a bit lost. It inspires you to wait patiently on the Lord while keeping Him the priority in your life. Sure it's challenging at times, but you can't go wrong when you're first committed to God. It will only make your future relationship with your spouse that much better.
Definitely buy this book if you're looking to form a solid position on how to have a God-centered, biblically sound relationship, especially if you're looking for a relationship aimed at marriage.
