Just after Christmas this past year, Steve and I went on vacation with some friends. On the road trip home I read aloud to him from a manuscript of a soon-to-be released book that my parents had let me borrow. For most of the drive on Interstate 81, we enjoyed a memorable and helpful discussion, which touched on many points throughout the book. It was insightful, fresh, well-written, and although directed at single men and women, surprisingly applicable to a six-year married couple like us.
We’re so happy to announce that this book has recently been published and is the next selection for our girltalk book club! The title: Doing Things Right in Matters of the Heart by John Ensor.
Crossway, the publisher, describes the book as an “easy-to-read guide for men and women [that] presents a biblical alternative to the culture’s broken system of ‘serial dating.’” And Dad adds his endorsement:
“Doing Things Right in Matters of the Heart defines and describes biblical masculinity and femininity for single adults. I would also encourage those who are married to read it. John Ensor is a creative and theologically astute writer. I have thanked him for writing this book and you will too.”
As Dad explains, this is more than just a relationships book for singles. It has valuable insight married men and women need to hear (and probably wish they’d heard much earlier!) and can be a useful tool for parents seeking to train their teenagers in biblical masculinity and femininity (although please exercise wisdom based on the maturity of your child).
You can order the book by clicking on the link on our sidebar. We will give you several weeks to obtain it before we begin reading assignments. Then together, we’ll all consider how to do things right in matters of the heart.
