Notes on Love
out 15th July 2021
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’. 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.
