And while I don't agree with all of the practical applications they tried to drive sex dating and relationships book in Lafayette this while their argument for why dating isn't exclusive sounded alright in theory, I can't see it working in practice the general principle here was really on-target.
Does that make sense? A drop-dead excellent book on what types of behavior Christians are called to exhibit sexually. Other editions. It explains deep theological truths in simple terms that are easy to understand, which provides the basic framework for the rest of the book.
