She's Got the Wrong Guy
The control freak. The angry man. The lazy guy. The unteachable guy. The promiscuous man. The unbeliever. The lone ranger. The unchurched guy. The new convert. The commitment-phobe.
For any woman who has struggled with failed relationships, this may seem like a familiar list. These are the men your friends and family have in mind when they think, “she’s with the wrong guy.” And while the reasons women choose these types of men are complicated and varied, ultimately, they will all let you down.
In She’s Got the Wrong Guy, Deepak Reju offers a different kind of dating book, discussing the types of guys women should not marry and offering biblical reasons why they aren’t suitable spouses. Writing from his years of experience as a pastor and counselor, Reju shares with women his perspective on how to assess a relationship’s strengths from the beginning, how to identify possible pitfalls, and how to have the courage to wait for a relationship that will be a blessing for both of you. Using stories that single women can relate to and highlighting contemporary issues in the modern world of dating, Reju gives readers clear, biblical direction on how to have positive, life-giving relationships with members of the opposite sex.
With a strong, Christ-centered focus, women will better understand why they “settle” for less than what God intends for their romantic relationships and learn to put their hopes and find their happiness in Jesus, not marriage.
My thoughts: As one of those girls who could of settled (since marriage didn't come around as early to me as it did to my friends), but looking at it as a wife and mother now (btw, I didn't settle. My husband is wonderful!) I thought that this book was an excellent resource for single women out there. Geared towards women, this book really helps one be intentional about who you marry. It's easy to get caught up in how a significant other makes you feel, but this book encourages women to step back from their relationships and be objective. I think this is a wonderful tool for single women! I like that there are plenty of true stories in this book that back up Deepak's thoughts.
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
