— Dr. Voddie Baucham Jr.
About the BookBoy-girl relationships are hard. They’re hard because they’re made of people, not mathematic equations, formulas, or quantifiable factors like numbers. When talking about relationships, we’re dealing with fluctuating factors like motives, irrational feelings, and a nature that was made by God to be one way and twisted by sin to be another. Numbers are easy because they are predictable, but the heart, as Jeremiah 17:9 says, “is deceitful above all things… who can understand it?” And if one person wasn’t complicated enough, just add another person, multiply their sin natures, and we’ve got an equation too hard to solve in our own strength. When we do try to boil these relationships down to simple rules and formulas, they can come out looking something like the diagrams below. Because when it comes to each of these quandaries of the heart… it’s just (not that) simple.
About the Authors
Anna Sofia and Elizabeth Botkin are the only girls in a family full of boys. At 25 and 23, they work with their five brothers in their media production company and with their whole family at the Western Conservatory of the Arts & Sciences. They authored So Much More and produced the documentary Return of the Daughters in response to the needs they saw for a biblical study on daughterhood. It’s (Not That) Complicated was inspired by conversations with their girl (and guy) friends on the subject of relationships, as well as by hundreds of letters they’ve received from girls around the world. They enjoy studying history, playing music, homemaking, and hiking in the rolling hills of Tennessee, where they live with their wonderful parents and three of their brothers (for whom they don’t bake nearly enough cookies).
