As a family man it hurts to see the increasing divorce rate among our people. This book was designed to teach single people how to begin the dating process in a healthy and wise way. If you want to get the girl and keep the girl without compromising your values, then you need to go "cop" this book. 
–Kirk Franklin, Gospel Recording Artist

Sticky. Hurtful. Draining. Words like these should never describe a relationship. But the 21st-century's definition of dating has made it so. Thankfully God has sent us Conway and Jada, lifelong friends of mine whose integrity causes the message of this book to speak loud and clear. Prepare to be challenged, convicted, and most importantly compelled to be different as you prepare to embrace the relationships in a way that brings God glory.
-Priscilla Shirer, Bible Teacher and Author

Sincere Christian singles are looking for a refreshing, practical, and godly perspective on relationships. It's time for Christians to establish a healthier norm for relationships to ensure a future with more Christ-centered families. This book is a priceless and proven path to that end. I have found great inspiration and encouragement through the wisdom Conway and Jada offer and it is a wonderful tool for discipling Christian singles.
-Lekesha R. Barnett, Assistant Pastor, New Faith Church, Houston, TX

Finally, my friend has put to paper a manual for dating and courting. In 2003, the words in this book were only thoughts that were passionately communicated around a lunch table. If you're single, read it, if you're a married, read it. Men, he calls us to lead and lead we must! Buy this book and read it, repeatedly!
–Pastor Rick Cooper, Associate Pastor of Married Couples & Single Adults, North Dallas Community Bible Fellowship, Richardson, TX

When Love's in View is truly a thought-provoking and soul-stirring book. This book discusses relationships in a way that is often felt by most people but never, in truth, verbalized by anyone. It is remarkably informative, yet astonishingly realistic; it gives real-life solutions to real-life struggles. Not only should every single person, both male and female, take the time to read this book, but every pastor or counselor-of-singles should read it. After reading the book, you will be equipped with the "antidote" on how to see a clearer picture of Christian "dating" and the roles that God destined for the man and woman.
-Eric L. Alexander, Senior Pastor, St. Luke Baptist Church, North Little Rock, AR

Every now and then, God gives you a friend that you instantly connect with at a deep level. Conway is one of those friends for me. His vulnerability opens the door for honest spiritual exploration, and his insight turns on the light of wisdom so that I can see my heart more clearly. More than anything, though, he helps me see Jesus' heart for me in the midst of my soul-searching. I have no doubt that as you read; he will do the same for you.
-Jeff Lawrence, Equipping Pastor, Northwest Bible Church, Dallas, TX

Guarding the heart is an ancient principle with modern applications. Conway and Jada take this principle and apply it to the fastest-growing population in America. Every unattached person would do well to ponder these principles and potentially save him or herself a great deal of pain. You should seriously engage the principles of this book before you allow anyone else to engage your heart.
–James R. Womack, Senior Pastor, Destiny Church, Fort Worth, TX

Helen Keller was asked, "Do you know of anything that's worse than being blind?" She thought for a moment and then said, "Yes, there is one thing worse than being blind—having sight with no vision." Unfortunately my wife and I were once visionless college singles pursuing dating relationships by sight alone. Lacking a vision for singleness proved detrimental in much of our relational decision making as collegians. We needed a guide! It is with great delight that I endorse Dr. Conway and Jada Edwards, When Love's in View: Finding Focus in Dating and Relationships, as a progressive blueprint for guiding singles with real issues to the destination of healthy relationships.
-Rev. & Mrs. Curtis Woods, Kentucky State University, Campus Ministers
