Product Description

Many of you grew up assuming that marriage would meet all of your needs and unlock God's purposes for you. But God has far more planned for you than your future marriage. Not Yet Married is not about waiting quietly in the corner of the world for God to bring you "the one," but about inspiring you to live and date for more now.

If you follow Jesus, the search for a spouse is no longer a pursuit of the perfect person, but a pursuit of more of God. He will likely write a love story for you different than the one you would write for yourself, but that's because he loves you and knows how to write a better story. This book was written to help you find real hope, happiness, and purpose in your not-yet-married life.

    The world has a lot to say about dating and relationships. It has a lot to say about people who are single and whether or not marriage is even necessary in the times we live in. But what does the single life, and dating, look like for a Christian?

    As a single woman in my 30's, I was hesitant to read this one, but decided to give it a shot. Most Christian books I've read regarding singleness, especially those written by married people, gear the message so heavily toward marriage and having children that they left me feeling lonely, and burdened by my singleness. That is not the case with this one.

    Segal spends the first part of the book speaking of singleness. He tackles that loneliness mentioned above in an honest and upfront way. We crave affection and want to be known. Marriage and relationships can give us that, so we tend to long for them, but as Christians the best and most intimate relationship we can have is with Jesus. Segal takes the time to explain that sometimes our singleness is God-given, for a purpose. There may be things God wants us to do for Him that are better suited for someone who doesn't yet have a spouse or children to take care of.

    The rest of the book is centered around dating with the intention of marriage. What does that mean for a Christian? How do we date in a way that looks different from the world? It's not just setting physical boundaries (though that is important), but it's about keeping Jesus first in the relationship. The Bible says we should love God first and foremost. That means even above our spouse.

    What I love most about this book is that Segal is careful to gear the message equally toward men and woman. While much of what he presents is generic, he reminds us that men and women have different roles and needs in a relationship, both spiritually and emotionally. He also guides the single toward a healthy, God-centered marriage without alienating the single who aren't actively seeking marriage, even us "older" singles. In fact, he includes them.

    If you're single, whether you want to be or not, I highly recommend this book to put your singleness in the right perspective.

    I received an electronic copy of this book from Crossway in exchange for an honest review.

    This book is helpful for anyone who is as the title says 'not yet married'. The author does a wonderful job of showing what both singleness and dating should look like in the life of a believer using Biblical references and personal experience.
