"..commonsense, straight-forward advice for this generation about love, sex and the 'ever after' marriages we all desire."
It used to mean getting what you wanted from the opposite sex, believing it was right for the moment, calling it love . . . and then regretting it later. The pure excitement of physical attraction with consequences! In this overtly sex-saturated culture, it’s time to redefine what “going all the way” should mean. Going All the Way is commonsense, straight-forward advice for this generation about love, sex and the “ever after” marriages we all desire.
Craig Groeschel writes with a pastor’s heart, a father’s insight and a man’s candid perspective. There is a liberating air of transparent honesty as he shares from his less-than-perfect dating days. Going All the Way is for everybody; whether you’re dreaming of the day you’ll say “I Do,” are about to be joined together in wedded bliss, or have been married for years and want to make changes.
He gracefully presents practical, no-holds barred wisdom about the dangers of hooking up and playing house, the naked truth on intimacy, integrity, forgiveness and communication. In chapter 7, “How to Hit the ‘Breaks’,” Groeschel even pushes hard on the concept of breaking up instead of holding onto a relationship, just so you have somebody significant in your life.
In a world where “going all the way” reeks of selfishness, author Craig Groeschel reveals to the reader how they can build a soul-enriching, lifelong relationship by putting God first.
Given the gluttony of relationship/marriage manuals in the marketplace from all types of “experts,” I highly recommend Going All the Way. Groeschel is an author I enthusiastically choose to read, (gladly setting other books aside to read his work).
