For teens that are still not sure what dating can be like for Christians, their God-written romance will entertain and teach at the same time. 03 of 10 I Kissed Dating Goodbye Buy on Amazon Despite the title, this is not a book telling teens not to date. Instead, Joshua Harris reminds teens about what it's like to have a God perspective when they decide to date. From going over “Seven Habits of Highly Defective Dating” to guarding the heart, the author provides an outlook on dating as a biblical act rather than short infatuation. His focus is looking at dating as something long-term and lasting rather than just a high school crush or fling. 04 of 10 Boy Meets Girl: Say Hello to Courtship Buy on Amazon By using his own personal experience about meeting and marrying his wife, Joshua Harris follows up his bestseller, “I Kissed Dating Goodbye,” with a book about how to pursue courtship. He asks teens to be thoughtful and pray about dating so that they can remain God-centered. 05 of 10 I Gave Dating a Chance: A Biblical Perspective to Balance the Extremes Buy on Amazon Christian teens are faced with conflicting advice from parents, friends, pastors, Bible experts, and more. Jeremy Clark takes a Biblical perspective to promote a healthy discussion about dating.

They use their insights into the way Christian teens think to provide advice that teens can relate to and use in their everyday dating lives. 07 of 10 Every Teenager's Little Black Book on Sex and Dating Buy on Amazon Written by Blaine Bartel, this book doesn’t just focus on how to find the right person to date, but also how teens can be the right person for someone else while avoiding the dangers of dating in today’s world. It also discusses the importance of being friends before dating and the difference between love and lust, which can be a confusing thing in the teen years. 08 of 10 Teen Love: A Journal on Relationships Buy on Amazon Not just a book that tells teens what to do, but instead this is a journal that helps Christian teens sort through their complex relationships with wisdom and support from the authors. There are exercises to express feelings and develop strength of conviction. Sometimes it helps to write things down or have a safe place to deal with the complex world of dating - a place with no judgement. 09 of 10 Forget Me Not: A Youth Devotional on Love and Dating Buy on Amazon It’s easy for teens to get caught up in the world of dating, it really is a big deal in any teenager's world.
