The book “I Kissed Dating Goodbye” has been something of a relationship bible for a generation of young evangelicals. It urges people to avoid rushing into relationships and gives advice like this. Reading Dating is a distraction.
It can help you practice being a good girlfriend or boyfriend, but those aren’t the skills you need for marriage. Joshua Harris wrote the book when he was just 21 years old. I was advocating for friendship. I was saying, you know, you can get to know this person, you can enjoy a deep friendship.

And the rest is by far the most important part. Jesus of Nazareth constantly tells his fellow human beings to let go of law and let love happen: This letting go is what the fundamentalist fears the most.
