Publisher's Description

There are more singles now than any other time in this nation's history. While this reflects an abundance of "available" men, why are so many Christian women who desire marriage still going through their lives alone?

Author A.J. Kiesling explores this dilemma and how our culture, church subculture, and the behaviors and beliefs of both genders shape the outcome. Kiesling's personal experience, extensive research, and more than a hundred candid interviews with single women help readers discover:

  • who these women are, their circumstances, and experiences
  • why there are so many non-marrying men
  • the influence of sex, feminism, expectations, and other factors on this trend
  • what men and women want in a mate and why candidates often fall short
  • how to date in a godly, intentional way while continuing to develop oneself

This fascinating, revealing look at an often glossed-over topic is filled with personal stories, "Girl Talk" questions and answers, "Man-Speak" comments and observations from men, and Kiesling's insight and compassion to help women understand their choices, their desires, and God's heart for their whole lives.

Editorial Reviews

"In the book, Where Have All the Good Men Gone?, author A.J. Kiesling does an amazing job of researching an issue that has long been a frustrated topic of conversation in the church--why Christian women are having a harder time finding good Christian men to marry. Through the sharing of that research, Kiesling opens the door for a frank discussion as to where this problem comes from, and more importantly, what singles can do to overcome it and find the mate God has for them. This is a must read for any single out there!"
--Cara Whedbee, PhD, author of The Point System

"I greatly appreciate A.J. Kiesling's journalistic style and would recommend her for other such controversial subjects. Frankly, I admire the way she tackles subjects that are difficult to approach for most Christians...especially for those who are ‘outside observers' and who see that everything is not ‘pie in the sky' for Christian Soldiers. It is my prayer that this book will encourage Christian single men in particular, to dare them to step up in their God-given faith and fulfill God's plan for men and women to be the 'completer' of each other. And that surely is His plan."
--Faye H Ruth

    Good insights into how men and women think/feel.

    The author is very clear and does not cover things over.

    Ms. Kiesling organizes her chapters around a number of real-life responses to her survey of single Christian men and women. Although I originally bought this book because some chapters echoed my own complaints about eligible Christian men, my eyes were also opened to various complaints that could justifiably be lodged about me! I'm very glad I chose to begin my personal soul-searching with this easy-to-read but hard-hitting volume. In addition, Ms. Kiesling's journalistic style is appealing, informative rather than preachy, personal and friendly rather than instructive. She analyzes critically, referencing a variety of leading literary and research sources that I found inspiring (and later looked up to read on my own). She does a good job of reporting the facts from her research and compiling useful wisdom from various well-known Christian and secular authorities. Yet despite her broad-minded inclusion of such sources and her realistic perspectives on modern life, she stays true throughout to Christian ideals of family, marriage, and God-centered love. This book is a good eye-opener, thus a good starting point for further inquiry and self-improvement. I would recommend this book to other adults like myself ... but also to teenagers, who can benefit from this peek into the world of smart, healthy courtship. After all, as Ms. Kiesling marvels, how does our society spend so much time preparing for everything in life except the arguably most important decision anyone makes? Oh, and I would also recommend checking out Ms. Kiesling's bibliography for a list of other great resources as well.

    "Where Have All the Good Men Gone" is well balanced examination of why more and more Christian singles are remaining single and not by choice.Based on extensive surveys and questionaires, A.J.'s book examines flaws in the entire philosophy of dating and Christian singles ministry, as well as what it is women want from men and vice versa.You won't like some of what you read in this book; you might not even agree with everything. But you are guaranteed to learn something that will change how you view singleness and how you 'help' your single friends find that special someone, or how you view the opposite sex when it comes to commitment and partnership.In reading "Where Have All the Good Men Gone", you can feel A.J.'s personal passion for the topic, but she doesn't have tunnel vision. She takes the whole matter, male and female, church and ministry and examines it and discusses it with intelligence and compassion.Divided into four parts, the first discusses how singles don't want to remain single and the longing she found in both sexes to connect and to marry. The second section disusses her findings with the women's responses to her survey; the third, the men's replies.Finally, A.J. is not one to show us the problem and leave us there. She ends with a section that is intended to give us new direction and to leave Christian singles with hope for something better, and direction in how to achieve what their hearts long for.I personally found the book enlightening and my heart went out to women (and men) who long to find that someone to spend their lives with. I also recognized the way the world's philosophy of dating and "mating" has crept into the church, and it's time we took back the ground we've surrendered, people!I have high hopes that this will change the way we view singles and singleness in our churches. Ministry leaders involved in single's ministry: read this book, please!

    This was an interesting, easy to read book on a topic that has been virtually unexplored. Author A.J. Kiesling digs into the subject of why so many woman remain single in today's culture when many of them would prefer to be married. She takes a look at both sides of the issue by interviewing both men and women for this book. The differing perspectives she finds is enlightening. Kiesling also offers advice to women about their search for a mate. For example, the advice she offers a never-married woman is to find out who you are before you try to find a man. Know what you want in life. When you finally get married, you will be a whole person on your own, not expecting your man to complete you. Sage advice.Makes a great gift for your daughter or a single friend.
