Welcome to Title Tuesday, my favorite day of the week! This day is dedicated to book suggestions and reviews. I write this portion of my blog because I am a big believer in the motivational speaker Charlie Jones' quote which says, "You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.” I try to meet as many new people as possible and to read everything I can. This is my way of sharing that information with you. If you are interested in understanding my rating system for books you can read my Book Review Explanation here and What I Believe here. If you want to check out what I am currently reading or what I want to read next, friend me on Goodreads! With all that being said, lets jump in!
If you turn on your radio at any given time you will likely hear a woman singing about unrequited love. Many of the songs are specifically about the ways in which men have wronged women. Cheating, lying, and generally acting like a child seems to fill the airways. Secular and Christian women alike all bemoan dating the average (even Christian) man.
Honestly it can seem a little overwhelming.
In Deepak Reju's book She's Got the Wrong Guy, he discusses why women settle for guys that are never going to meet their needs. Reju breaks down the 10 most common types of "wrong guys" that women settle for and how to spot them. He also talks extensively about the kind of guy that Christian women should be looking for instead. The thing that really got me about She's Got the Wrong Guy is the fact that Reju does a great job of pointing the reader back to Christ. What is the ultimate goal of dating? The same goal as everything else for the follower of Christ, to glorify Him. Reju just puts it in better perspective than most.
Overall, I give She's Got the Wrong Guy a solid A+. I think that Reju's work would be a fabulous book for a single women's Bible study group. It would also be a good book for a young woman that is about to go off to college and really enter the dating world. It might also be a good book for parents to read if they are looking to help guide their older daughters in how to approach dating.
