Book Review | Waiting and Dating by Myles Munroe

“Healthy relationships should always begin at the spiritual and intellectual levels – the levels of purpose, motivation, interests, dreams,and personality.” 

Dr. Myles Munroe


This book is a must read for every singles out there.

It is even better to read it before going into a relationship.

It will help in deciding who you want to be with, if you want to take that next step with the man/woman you are currently talking to.

It will also help you love your single phase and understand that you are complete with or without a partner.


And if you are already in a relationship, why not?

You can absolutely dive in.


In waiting and dating, Myles definitely outlined a lot of meaningful details that we need to take note of:


Before I read this book, I always felt:

  • Two incomplete people come together to complete each other in a relationship. But Myles says NO. you are complete in yourself, that is why you have to love yourself and feel fulfilled as a single before you venture into a relationship at all. So you are not bringing your 50 to meet his or her 50. NO. You are bringing your 100 to meet his/her 100 and together you make a formidable force.
  • The will of God is a particular person and no one else. But Myles put this in a brilliant and very stringent perspective. Your will of God can be anyone, but first, they must be from the same family as you (Oops did I confuse you! Sorry!) it simply means they must be Children of God like you, believe in the same values with you and you should be able to respect their values and come to a compromise on your different views.

It’s such an interesting topic that I just want to keep writing about it. But this is a book review. So you have to read it yourself)

Dr. Myles Munroe put a lot of things in perspective for me.

And then he moves from being in a single phase to finding a partner, then to what you do in the relationship and how to keep relationship values and set realistic boundaries.


Myles really broke a lot of myths prevalent in the christiandom about dating and relationships.

You probably have not gotten a partner because you don’t know these things or you believe the ‘right person’ is the ‘wrong one ‘ for you, just because you don’t know these things.

This is a book you will be glad you read and shared.

  1. The maths doesn’t add up. That is the idea that both of you are complete (100%) before coming together. But that is how the things of God usually don’t follow our own rules. No wonder Jesus said the two shall come together and become one, a mathematician would have said the two halves shall come together. This is evidence that you have to be complete in yourself.
    Nice review, I’ll add it to my reading list.
