Altared by Claire and Eli

by Jeremy Barker
April 5, 2014

Have we made too little of love by making too much of marriage? Altared is written in a rather interesting style. It intersperses the story of the relationship of Claire, an aspiring writer, and Eli, a JD student at the University of Chicago... [Read on]

Interesting read

by Sarah Keil
February 8, 2014

The book I have to review for you today deviates from my usual read. Altared: The True Story of a She, a He, and How They Both Got Too Worked Up About We by Claire & Eli is an interesting read that I received courtesy of WaterBrook Multnomah... [Read on]

Integrating Discipleship and Singleness

by Starla Gooch
November 9, 2013

Before reading Altared, I was expecting a book about dating. What I got, however, was a book about discipleship. In the first few chapters, Claire and Eli (who are using pseudonyms), set up the premise of the book by describing an American... [Read on]

Useful Book But Not the Best One I Have Read on Dating

by Michael Boling
July 16, 2013

Finding a mate and the societal push to marry is often one of the most stressful periods of life a person will face. Is there someone out there for me and when will that person come my way often leads to what can be described as an unhealthy... [Read on]

Book Review: Altared: The True Story of a She, a He, and How They Both Got Too Worked Up About We

by Erin Rucker
June 13, 2013

I really enjoyed this book and found it helpful for those who are single. Being a Christian, a lot of sermons are about marriage, how can single people relate to this? Is our ultimate goal to find a husband and raise a family? In the... [Read on]

Altared or Altered?

by Travis Carroll
June 8, 2013

In all honesty I am not sure how to view this book. There seem to be two ideas that have been twisted together in the discussion found within its pages. One is worth reading the book for; however, the other seems dangerous and must be approached... [Read on]

Best Of Both Worlds

by Tara Box
May 30, 2013

I almost didn't get Altared by Claire and Eli. I wasn't super into the idea of reading another book about marriage. Most of you that know me well enough to know my stance on singleness- it being a true gift and standing with what Paul said in 1... [Read on]

Altared

by Jonathon Burns
May 11, 2013

Ring by spring. That seemed to be the motto of the Christian University I attended, and I saw this played out more than once. And it wasn’t just that college. It seems that many churches, regardless of the denomination, strongly push marriage,... [Read on]

Bait & Switch

by Schuyler Peterson
May 10, 2013

The question raised in the first chapter would fuel a small group discussion for at least six weeks: "Do you think we tend to overemphasize marriage in evangelical culture?" The twenty-four pages that the authors spend in establishing this... [Read on]

Okay Read for Pre-Marriage

by Kyle Wiley
May 8, 2013

What I thought was a book on marriage turned out to be more of a story of dating / courtship and the relationships that lead up to marriage. Granted, the co-authors of this book did not end up getting married, but it is a pretty good story,... [Read on]
