Courting Disaster: Should Christians and non-Christian Date Each Other by Neil Richardson and published by Day One Publications.
There is one purpose in life: 'to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever'. This book aims to encourage us to please God by submitting our wills to his in our romantic relationships. Neil Richardson explains that the teaching of the Bible is that Christians should not go out with non-Christians, and he thoroughly explores the various issues involved. He looks at points such as:
* Why it is wrong to go out with a non-Christian;
* Some of our motives for wanting these relationships;
* What the eternal consequences are if we disobey the Bible's teaching;
* Our objections to obeying this teaching.
In addition, he offers some helpful advice to parents of children who might be involved in relationships with unbelievers, and deals with some ethnic issues which might arise.
