Excerpt


Geared toward single adults rather than teenagers, Recovering a Biblical View of Christian Dating attempts to answer the question, "What does the Bible say about dating?" The fact is that dating is a twentieth-century notion so the challenge is to think biblically about a matter on which there is no direct teaching. Organized into three main sections, the book explores God's design in creation, the relationship fallen through sin, and the relationship redeemed by God's grace.

Excerpt


From the cheers for our first steps to the applause for our greatest achievement, we are bombarded with the never-ending challenge to achieve and accomplish more. Deep within us is the desire to win the prize, attain the promotion, earn someone's love, or secure a promising future. Without realizing it we come to view ourselves as performers, evaluating our lives by how much we accomplish and what we achieve. Before we know it, life ends up passing us by.

While everyone faces this never-ending cycle of performing, it is often more magnified in the life of the single adult. In order to compensate for what might be perceived as something "missing" in an otherwise full life, the single adult can easily get caught up in proving to the world (and oneself) that he or she does have value and is a contributing member of society---even without a spouse or children. For some single adults, life in the here and now becomes no more than an endurance test or dress rehearsal for the life that is to come once they've found the perfect job, the ideal place to live, or the dream marriage. By falling into the performance-driven trap, they never truly experience life.

In Dancing Solo, Tim Green disrupts the performance-driven mindset by asking, "What if life is something other than a series of disconnected achievements?" or "What if what we have come to call 'life' isn't really 'life' at all?" With thoughtful relevance and inspirational anecdotes, Green imparts the understanding that life cannot be earned or accomplished but is simply the good and pure gift of God. He challenges us to stop for a moment and hear---through the noisy chatter of life--the unique beat that God gives all of us, inviting us to receive, embrace, and releasee life in a childlike dance of wonder and awe.

Dancing Solo is the perfect resource for single adults, young adults leaders, youth and college pastors, single ministries workers.

Albert Y. Hsu
Retail Price: $16.00
CBD Price: $11.99

Add To Cart

Excerpt


Nearly half of adults today are unmarried yet most churches emphasize marriage and family, leaving many Christian singles feeling marginalized or alienated. Though they look to Jesus and Paul as role models, many suspect they would be more acceptable to the church if they settled down and got married. Hsu challenges this view. Moving beyond pat answers, Hsu proposes that singleness and marriage are both opportunities in which to follow Jesus. Singles at the Crossroads points the way to a Christian community where all members are valued, Jew and Gentile, slave and free, male and female, married and single.
