The Dating Project is a thought-provoking, award-winning documentary about the “hookup culture” that not only sparks conversation, but also encourages single people to take action. The film follows five young adult college students from around the United States who are given an unconventional extra-credit assignment: Go on a date.
The class is taught by Boston College philosophy professor Kerry Cronin, who is Catholic and says that dating has been replaced by “hooking up” and “hanging out,” making the traditional days of “courtship” seem obsolete.
Ascension is proud to offer A Guide to the Dating Project for both group and individual study. Featuring Jason Evert and other leading Catholic authors, this guide is written to accompany the film and spark potentially life-changing insights and conversation. It includes study questions and articles related to dating and discernment, as well as the “Dating Assignment” featured in the film.
Written by Jason and Crystalina Evert, the Guide to the Dating Project was written to help parents, youth ministers, and others start and guide important discussions around this powerful film.
The guide includes thought-provoking, conversation-starting study questions, as well as the very popular “dating assignment” that is featured in the film.
It also includes relevant articles pertaining to dating by Catholic experts including Jackie and Bobby Angel, Fr. Mike Schmitz, and more.
The Guide to The Dating Project can be purchased on its own, but also in a bundle that includes the DVD of the movie!
