Cindy Chupack takes a hilarious look at love, dating, and not dating in this witty, truthful and utterly charming book. Tackling topics such as "relationship reruns" (a sobering stage when you realize that the men you meet are basically repeats of the men you've already dated) and "relocationships" (the kind of relationship hat necessitates moving to a place where you would never consider living), Dispatches from the Dating Front Lines is as reassuring as that late-night post-date phone call to a best friend. It says: you may be single, but you are not alone. Praise for The Between Boyfriends Book: A Collection of Cautiously Hopeful Essays "Oh, how I love this book! I laughed out loud again and again. It hits such an intimate and true chord, it's painful actually, how insightful Cindy Chupack is. Every woman who's been through the dating miasma must read it." - Julia Sweeney "Cindy Chupack is funny about single. Very funny. And smart. And sympathetic. And empathetic. And helpful. And the stories in this book are really horrible in a great way." - Delia Ephron

God knows it is hard to make God boring, Stanley Hauerwas writes, but American Christians, aided and abetted by theologians, have accomplished that feat. Whatever might be said about Hauerwas—and there is plenty—no one has ever accused him of being boring, and in this book he delivers another jolt to all those who think that Christian theology is a matter of indifference to our secular society. At once Christian theology and social criticism, this book aims to show that the two cannot be separated. In this spirit, Hauerwas mounts a forceful attack on current sentimentalities about the significance of democracy, the importance of the family, and compassion, which appears here as a literally fatal virtue. In this time of the decline of religious knowledge, when knowing a little about a religion tends to do more harm than good, Hauerwas offers direction to those who would make Christian discourse both useful and truthful. Animated by a deep commitment, his essays exhibit the difference that Christian theology can make in the shaping of lives and the world.
