Clarke, Charles J. - Christian Courtship

Clarke, Charles J.
9.x - 10.x
Dating, Engagement and Marriage. How to find a mate the Godly way ...
Written by Charles J. Clarke, London, 1947
This booklet has been written to give young people some simple guidance concerning that period of preparation for marriage we call courtship. The aim is to show that courtship is not only a very thrilling experience but also a serious phase of life which may issue in either happiness or misery. Courtship, the writer teaches, is the foundation upon which marriage is built. Unless the foundation has been wisely laid the whole structure of marriage may fall into ruin.
The four short chapters entitled Friendship, Courtship, Betrothal, and Marriage, indicate the scope of the booklet. It is a word of advice, chiefly, to Christian young people, emphasizing the principles which should guide the Christian youth or maid in the choice of a life-partner. This is just the message that many parents, youth leaders, and ministers have been longing to put into the hands of young people for whose life-long happiness they yearn.
"... to join together this Man and this Woman in Holy. Matrimony; which is an honourable estate, instituted by God, ... and therefore is not by any to be enterprised, nor taken in hand, unadvisedly, lightly, or wantonly; but reverently, discreetly, advisedly, soberly, and in the fear of God."
