Book reviews kissed dating goodbye
As someone who grew up in the evangelical subculture influenced by IKDG, my friends and I have had a lot of conversations about some of the issues addressed in this film.I think part of the appeal of the original book was its connection to our own fear of failure; the idea that if you do things the right way no one will get hurt.In the documentary, you can follow Josh's journey, get interesting insights from a variety of different perspectives (readers, critics, experts etc.), listen to his honest reflections and, most of all, think for yourself how you view the various issues raised. For example, the observations that Josh's book was held up as a Bible and that marriage should not be "the ultimate" thing were pointed out several times in different ways, so at some point I felt "yeah I get it" ;-) But apart from that, the documentary was really well-done - nice visuals, good pacing and good camera work. Even the fact that an author was willing to question his own book (publicly) deserves respect, I've not seen this anywhere else.I appreciated this thoughtful and grace-filled documentary.Do you know you have asked for this priceless thing As a child might ask for a toy?Demanding what others have died to win, With a reckless dash of boy.A loving woman finds heaven or hell On the day she is made a bride.I require all things that are grand and true, All things that a man should be; If you give this all, I would stake my life To be all you demand of me. The sex leaves us dissatisfied and hungry for something real, something true. It's found in God's brand of love - love founded on faithfulness, rooted in commitment.
I am now fond of the CS Lewis quote: To love at all is to be vulnerable.2.
This is what I appreciated in this documentary: humility and honesty in acknowledging mistakes, with hope in the One who redeems them as we grow together.
"Through it all, through the compost of our efforts, God brings glory." (N. Wilson I thought Josh did a great job of explaining the context of when and why he wrote the book.
You have written my lesson of duty out, Manlike, you have questioned me.
Now stand at the bars of my woman's soul Until I shall question thee.
