I just finished reading the book, ‘The Dating Manifesto’ by Lisa Anderson and I am so glad that I picked this one up. I have been following Boundless for quite some time now and love listening to the podcast session. Lisa Anderson is the director of Boundless and young adults at Focus on the Family, and hosts The Boundless Show podcast.
When she published her book I knew I definitely wanted to read it. I think the fact that she is single and knows exactly what a person goes through during those years of singleness, made me want to hear what she had to say as regards dating-in the context of marriage.
The book is pretty straightforward. If you cant handle the bitter truth upfront- this book is not for you. I liked the fact that she shared her life experiences that helped me relate to my situations as well. Really good tips on dating, wisdom, accountability, and contentment and most important-God’s sovereign rule over every single, small detail of our lives.
Apart from addressing the singles, she has written to the church at the end of the book:) Even though this book can be hard hitting, Lisa’s sense of humour and her love for the Lord will make you want to honour Him in every season of your life and remind you that singleness is not a waiting period for something better to come. You are living a good life in your singleness too:)
Book Rating: 4/5
