Young and in love by Ted Cunningham


"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."

In Young and in Love Ted Cunningham has some pretty bold views on love, more specifically young love. He thinks that it should be promoted and celebrated more than it is. Most people think early marriages are horrible and always end in divorce. But thats not even the issue. There are many factors that can end a marriage. Though people do give up a lot. Being young and married has nothing to do with it. There are a lot of secrets that Ted shares to have a successful early marriage or even just a relationship.

This book was a really great read, not only did it have a few quotes from Seattle pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill. It was just really great advice for people in love. For me being in my late 20's there was a lot that I learned while reading this book. This is a book I wished I had when I was a teenager. There was a time when I would go read a lot of dating and relationship books to be prepared for when that time came. And this one would have been amazing to have. Its really great that young people now will have this to look through and read. There is so much to say about it. Because its so packed with great tips and advice. But you should just go pick it up, you will not regret it.
