Free (nook/Kindle/Christianbook) Young and in Love [Christian Relationship Advice]
Young and in Love: Challenging the Unnecessary Delay of Marriage by Ted Cunningham is pretty much about exactly what it says in the title. Plus tips on making early marriages among teenaged couples happier and presumably less likely to end in divorce and/or murder-suicide, free courtesy of Christian publisher David C. Cook.
Currently free @ B&N and Amazon UK, will likely drop in the main store and may show up at Christian Book as well.
Description (frankendescription cobbled together from the Amazon and B&N ones, which on their own seem kind of too "lite" and too "srs bizniz", respectively)
What if We’ve Got This Purity Thing All Wrong?
In Young and In Love, pastor, author, and speaker Ted Cunningham boldly argues that young love should be celebrated, even promoted. Early marriages can be God’s will and often provide the key to sexual purity. With this in mind, Cunningham shares the secrets to a successful early marriage with those in their late teens and early twenties who are in love.
This book suits anyone experiencing young love who struggles with naysayers who dismiss or hinder a God-designed relationship. It also addresses young adults who struggle with the teachings of other popular books on abstinence or on delaying dating or marriage. And it offers parents and pastors who feel concerned about a relationship a source of wise counsel that carefully prepares young adults for a godly marriage.
Developing a godly relationship can be hard when you fall in love at a young age. Few people offer support. Many doubt your love is real. It seems almost everyone-your friends, your parents, even your church-thinks you're much too young for marriage. You're not ready. But maybe that's not true.
Pastor Ted Cunningham reveals the secrets to creating a healthy, successful, and lifelong relationship in early adulthood. He explains where the arguments against young marriage often go wrong. Then he offers wisdom on how to know if you are making the right choice and helps you understand what it takes to be ready for marriage. And along the way, he shows you that, far from kissing dating good-bye, the answer to staying pure might be to prepare for marriage. Because it's often easier to say, "Let's wait," when "I do" isn't so far away.
This all kind of reminds me of the late George Alec Effinger's short story "Maureen Birnbaum and the Saint-Greal" (part of the excellent and recommended Maureen Birnbaum, Barbarian Swordsperson series) where while on the quest for the Holy Grail, Maureen keeps getting these helpful encouraging congratulatory notes upon uncovering each Clue towards the grail which pretty much all ended with "and remember to stay pure, no matter what your disgusting fleshly senses tell you. Pure is the way to go!"
