Description

In this delightfully witty and uplifting book, journalist Lauren Windle shines a light on the trials and tribulations – and sometimes also the triumphs – of the world of Christian dating.

Much has happened in the last couple of generations to liberate single people in their twenties and thirties. Yet being single in the Church too often means batting off questions about why you haven’t met ‘your other half’ yet – or else being warned to ‘guard your heart’ as if your next coffee date might just corrupt you completely . . .

Notes on Love shuns tired stereotypes and the second class-citizen status that follows so many single people around. With candid accounts of her own experiences, Lauren embraces being single in its entirety: the hilarity, messiness and despondency that are often present in equal measure.

This is a book for anyone who has struggled with dating in Church, or who has asked themselves how to be single as a Christian only to discover there’s no right answer. Open-hearted, generous and honest, Notes on Love is an invitation to laugh, cry and know that whether you are male or female, single, coupled up or somewhere in between, you are not alone.

In this delightfully witty and uplifting book, journalist Lauren Windle shines a light on the trials and tribulations – and sometimes also the triumphs – of the world of Christian dating.

Featured Reviews

Thanks to NetGalley and SPCK for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. This book is wise, witty, warm and above all, hopeful. Lauren navigates the topic of singleness and dating in the church with great skill and humour, but also heart. Alongside the issues it's talking about it's also a passionate cry for community. Church leaders need to read this, single people, married people and everyone in between need to read it so we can navigate life with one another with grace.
