Book Jacket:

Putting in their hour or two on the weekend, many Christians take the rest of the week off, neglecting the church and her needs. Itís not a serious relationship. Some shop around, looking for a church that suits their lifestyle. Itís dating, with no assurances, no obligations. Bestselling author Joshua Harris calls Christians to stop playing the field and commit, just as Christ is committed to us, His bride. In his new book, Harris explores the ramifications of Ephesians 5:25Ė32, which proclaims the intensity and the breadth of Jesus Christís love for His church. God has designed us to build our lives around a local church; we cannot be indifferent or uninvolved. Rather, we must be in love with and committed to Godís plan and purpose through the church. Are you dating the church, or are you committed?
