Yes, but I am not willing to bet yours so read what he has to say and decide for yourself. While I didn't agree with all he had Love sex dating say and perhaps the theology behind it, I have to say if you can ignore the churchy hype, "Love sex dating" guy has something important to say about love, sex, and marriage.

Sex and sexuality are a bit like fire. The same is true for all things sexual. If you never been married or are under thirty, even if you have lived with someone you underestimate the complexity of your sexuality and the long-term ramifications of your sexual conduct.
As Stanley uses the example: Our bodies share a similar design when it comes to our sexuality to be expressed within a specific context. You can choose to express your sexuality outside the parameters of that divine design. Romance is fueled by exclusivity. Practice makes perfect does not apply to sex. "Love sex dating" is why practice undermines the essence of romance.

I was fortunate to become an integral part of what is now North Point Ministries, from the beginning of its inception in l For the first three years "Love sex dating" met every other Sunday night in rented facilities, and when the Olympics came to town, we were unable to meet for nine weeks.
Later the land was purchased in Alpharetta, GA and construction began —what is now North Point —some great times, a huge singles group, and many budding friendships grew out of this fabulous foundation.

In New Rules for Love, Sex, and Dating, pastor and bestselling author Andy Stanley provides practical, biblical, uncensored advice to anyone who is dating or thinking about marriage. Stanley outlines the triumphs and tragedies of dating in the twenty-first century. A few days before I started reading this book, one of my oldest girlfriends and I were talking about how Love sex dating parents talked to us about sex.

There is an ingrained curiosity in kids of all ages to know the who, what, where, when, and why of things. Only when they know the reason behind the statement, will they consider adopting it as their own beliefs. We literally set our children up for failure when we don't explain why we wait for marriage to have sex.
Andy Stanley debunks this theory but, more importantly, he expands on it in continuing chapter. He comes up with a brilliant line that I am going to use on my girls: You need to be the kind of person that the kind of person you want will actually want. This is a life truth that needs to be taught more than it is. It would change lives if we managed to get our children to understand this concept before they left the house so that they could apply it to all aspects of their lives.
Stanley really gets into the good stuff starting with Chapter 6 "The Gentleman's Club" where he talks about how to treat a woman. This is left out of so many books, and young men are left to figure it out on their own. They adore women and expect them to be lifted up, respected, cherished and valued.
