What does Scripture say about dating? Nothing—and everything!

According to the Bible's perspective, if you are dating you are not just holding hands—you are holding hearts. What you do with your own heart, and what you do with another's, is a matter of great importance!

This book offers a biblical view of relationships and doesn't shy away from discussing attraction, first dates, commitment and more elements that need to come together to make a successful relationship.
