Devotions dating couples reviews
However, my now-fiance and I did have some very meaningful conversations that were provoked by the book, some of them even inspired by how poorly the authors had covered some of the subjects.So, I'd give the book itself a rather low rating..I'll bump up because I actually think that, in a perhaps unintended way, the book accomplished exactly what it was supposed to do for us.The Monday-to-Friday anecdotes, which often use the prosaic to illustrate the profound (the shame of a messy dorm room, for instance, teaches the importance of "healthy self-talk"), can feel a bit judgmental and preachy.But each week's summary questions will help partners reconnect with their spiritual selves, and may even settle questions of compatibility. It has helped my boyfriend and I grow closer and learn how to have more open conversations about religion and God.The analogies used in the passages are relatable and easy to apply to everyday life.

It provokes deeper searching in the scripture to find out the real truth and helped us tackle hard questions. We are always looking for a couples-devotional book that measures up to this one, but we haven't found one yet. I especially like that you read the short daily devotionals by yourself during the week and come together on the weekend to read a devotion together with discussion questions! While I disagree with some of the theology in the book, overall I found it helpful as a reflection and discussion device.
This book, though it was not enjoyed as much for what it was, had some great value for our couples group as well as the one-on-one conversations with my girlfriend. My fiance's proposal even stemmed from a discussion based upon one particular chapter, so for that alone, it was a worthwhile read.
