Read full description of the books:
I can honestly say that I did not enjoy Marriable: Taking the Desperate Out of Dating. I wouldn't say that it was an altogether terrible book and I only made it halfway through but I decided to stop because its message didn't sit right with me. I started this book expecting it to be a Christian-themed book about preparing for dating and marriage. In truth, it was more of a straight forward, middle of the road book that wouldn't offend anyone outside of the Christian faith, except for hard core Christians who take their faith too seriously (like me). Referring to Christian/Biblical dating as a joke and that if "You want to live biblically? Have your parents arrange a marriage for you. Now there's Biblical. Just make sure they get some good oxen in return...(pg 70)" really doesn't sit right with me. You can date biblically without being sold off for oxen.... I understand that Hayley and Michael were just trying to lighten the mood and make a joke but it shocked me in a book written by two, known Christians.
It also surprised me that they decided to take the perspective of dating being a game, with rules of how to play and how not to play and how to win. Maybe I'm just inexperienced but I don't think dating should be looked at as a game, where my focus is simply 'what can I get from this person'.
Some people may think it's nice to find a book that's not explicitly Christian or over the top but to me, Christianity is over the top. It simply is. And a book that smoothes down all the edges just to not offend others, has missed the point of Christian dating.
