Joshua Harris's first book, written when he was only 21, turned the Christian singles scene upside down...and people are still talking. More than 800,000 copies later, I Kissed Dating Goodbye, with its inspiring call to sincere love, real purity, and purposeful singleness, remains the benchmark for books on Christian dating.

The book that started this author off at the age of 21. Since then he has written several others and has gone on to become a lead pastor and even got married. This book gives hope to those teens that strive for sexual purity and waiting on God's spouse for them.
