“Dating Like Airplanes” by Caleb Breakey

This is a much deeper and more useful book than the title lets on.  It is an honest and extensive look at what can make a relationship fly, and also the why and how.  I love that it has tidbits of advice from several couples (usually at the end of the chapters) including the author: it adds realness to the discussions, which is one of his points.   

This is a great book for people who are looking to date or already dating, but I also found it encouraging to read as a (happily) married person.  It contained encouragements and ideas for building (or in my case, maintaining) an excellent relationship.  The author not only addressed important and sometimes delicate topics well, he also spoke from the heart and from experience.  When he talked about pain, you knew he had experienced it; when he talked of one’s conscience sounding the alarm, you knew he had heard the alarms too.  I especially appreciated how he pointed to Scripture as his basis, without sounding legalistic or trite.  

If my thumbs being up count for anything, they are both up for this book.

Thanks to Net Galley (https://www.netgalley.com/) and Harvest House Publishers, for not only publishing a great book, but also providing me with a copy to read and review.
