There are books about it, songs about it, internet dating, and even seminars on it…all of which are designed to “help” you find that special someone to love. So why is “true love” so elusive?

In this book, you’ll discover that there is a better way to find love, stay in love, and grow intimacy for a lifetime. Chip Ingram unpacks Ephesians Chapter 5 and delivers to us God’s prescription for building relationships that last a lifetime.
I Kissed Dating Goodbye
by Joshua Harris I was 21-years old when I wrote my story of giving up the dating game in order to focus on serving God. The hope behind it was that other singles would be helped by some of the lessons I was learning. Most people have an opinion about “that book about not dating.” Some love it; others despise it. I’d encourage you not to assume you know what it says without having read it. Many readers who start out critics of I Kissed Dating Goodbye are surprised to learn that the core message of the book isn’t about “dating,” but living your life for God.In 2003, I Kissed Dating Goodbye was updated to the version now available, which includes a new foreward (by Sam Torode), a new chapter, and expanded content in many chapters.
