Publisher's Description

What if you stopped looking for a "soul mate" and started looking for a "sole mate"—someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God? What if dating isn’t about finding "the one" but making a wise choice so you can better serve the One who loves you most? What if God didn’t design relationships to make you happy but to make you holy?

 
In The Sacred Search, Gary Thomas will transform the way you look at romantic relationships. Whether you are single, dating, or engaged, Gary’s unique perspective on dating will prepare you for a satisfying, spiritually enriching marriage even before you walk down the aisle. As Gary reminds us, a good marriage is not something you find—it’s something you make.

    This book has revolutionized the way I look at, engage in, and pursue relationship. It has given me a new perspective of marriage and courtship in such a way that I now have the confidence to allow a relationship with an amazing, godly young man to occur. I was always fearful of relationship because I did not want to waste "his" or my time, emotions, and energy. However, after reading this book, I have realized I would be a fool to let this particular young man walk by. God is so good and Gary Thomas is a spectacular writer. The book is engaging and life-changing.

    I bought two of these books for my college age kids. I have been reading it myself and Gary is right on target. Great stuff...just like all of his other books.

    I LOVED "Sacred Marriage" by the same author. I went into reading this book with high expectations. I liked a lot of his cautions, his emphasis on the person you marry being the father of your children, the porn trap, reasons for getting married, and more.

    I did feel that he talked out of both sides of his mouth, saying there isn't one soul mate (I agree), but there were MANY areas in which he felt it was important to be compatible making it seem nearly impossible to find someone who would meet all the criteria he puts forth.

    Gary Thomas in his new book, "The Sacred Search" published by David C. Cook asks us What If It's Not about Who You Marry, But Why?

    From the Back Cover: What if being in love isn't a good enough reason to get married?

    What if dating isn't about finding "The One" but about serving the One who loves you most?

    Don't get married until you read this book.

    What if you stopped looking for a "soul mate" and started looking for a "sole mate"--someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God? What if dating isn't about finding "the one" but making a wise choice so you can better serve the One who loves you most? What if God didn't design relationships to make you happy but to make you holy? In The Sacred Search, Gary Thomas will transform the way you look at romantic relationships. Whether you are single, dating, or engaged, Gary's unique perspective on dating will prepare you for a satisfying, spiritually enriching marriage even before you walk down the aisle. As Gary reminds us, a good marriage is not something you find--it's something you make.

    On the issue of marriage there are some issues that can be compromised on, this one shouldn't be. "The Sacred Search" is all about finding the person that you will not only spend the rest of your life with but will be the co-parent of your children and grandparent to your children's children. There is much that the Bible has to say on this matter and Gary Thomas addresses many of these issues. In marriage the person you marry will be your best friend, your confidant, your beloved so choosing that special someone better be done wisely and according to the way God has said. Gary Thomas in "The Sacred Search" has given us a book that will help anyone looking to get married laser focus their vision. I recommend this book highly!

    Highly recommend this book to those that are single and wanting to pursue a relationship. Ladies, we soon forget how much we are valued by our Father. We look for acceptance through guys that look our way, are interested, pursing us, etc., and that's when we let our guard down and give them our most precious gift (ourselves, our purity). It is hard! My prayer has been "God help me in my weakness. I'm SOOO WEAK ALL the time!!! Only you Lord! Be my strength." God has answered my desperate prayers. He can help you, too. Be encouraged and READ this book! YOU ARE VALUABLE!!!
