Dare to Date is the first book from Christian psychologist and dating teacher Aukelien Van Abbema. It engages the big dating questions that plague all of us trying to navigate the dating scene in the 21st century. Beautifully written, carefully edited, and published by the UK's oldest and largest Christian Publisher, Dare to Date is a brilliant book that engages with one of the most pressing concerns of many people in the Church.
Matters of the heart always seem to be. But dating in the church? It can be even worse.
Relationships can be difficult to define, intentions hard to discern. But with singles making up a third of the total church congregation in the UK, there is a real need to demystify the dating process and return to dating in its simplest form.
Rediscover how to date.
In this brand new handbook, couples psychologist and dating course leader Aukelien van Abbema offers guidance on how to understand yourself and your own dating patterns, how to rely on your network of friends, and how to bring God into the whole process. Filled with wisdom, stories and practical advice, this book is a freeing reassessment of the dating scene.
Begin a whole new romantic adventure filled with hope, joy and a lot of laughter.
Go on, Dare to Date.
