Although this book was a quick read, the principles within will take time to apply. Craig Groeschel is a pastor with a past who honestly expresses his desire for people to wait for God's best.
His examples include stories from his own life and people he has counseled.
"If you want what few have, do what few do. Raise your standards. Pursue holiness" (63).
This book renewed my hope for a godly marriage. "People in my generation are making decisions way before marriage that actually sabotage what they really want for their futures" (5).
I really appreciated his two chapters on the differences between men and women (Thinking Differently about Husbands/Thinking Differently about Wives). Groeschel attacks some lies that women believe. Sadly, I have believed some of them, and it is good to know that someone cares enough about women to confront them with the truth in love.
I highly recommend this for singles. I'd even recommend it for married couples since I am sure they can apply what Groeschel talks about as well!
I reviewed this book for Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers Blogging for Books. I received this book for free in exchange for a review of the book.
