Book Critique: Dating and the Single Parent

Deal, Ron L. Dating and the Single Parent. Bethany House Publishers a Baker Publishing Group, Minn, Minnesota, 2012. You will do this by analyzing the material from 3 points of view: (1) summarize the key ideas in the book, (2) discuss the potential for its use for Christian premarital couples, (3) critique at least 2 ideas in the book from a studied, theological perspective. The paper must be 57 pages (not including a title and reference page) and must be written entirely in third person (no personal reflection such as “I think” or “I knew this couple…”). Section headings must be used to clearly show each of the areas addressed. Each section must address the following: Summary Avoid writing things like “the book is broken down into 10 chapters. Chapter One says…”A better approach is to identify the major ideas and to explain what the author is suggesting. Chapter and section titles are irrelevant to a summary. Potential Use for Christian Couples This section focuses on how the book”s content would be valuable (or not) to premarital couples in the church. You get to add some opinion here, but it must still be written in third person. Critique A critique is not necessarily negative. You may agree or disagree with a point, but, to critique it, you must break it down and discuss its value in relation to other ideas. For example, if you think that the author”s ideas on the fears of children being an important factor in dating are wrong, you must explain what the author is suggesting and develop your ideas on why you disagree. Pick 2 ideas from the book and support them with scholarly references.
