of marriage before you know the who

- Why the myth of "the one" is so destructive, and what the biblical alternative is
- Where God id leadingyou in your search
In his new book, The Sacred Search, best-selling author Gary Thomas tackles the topic of love and dating by asking the question: What if it's not about who you marry, but why? The Sacred Search Study Resource is a DVD-driven Bible study for small groups of single, dating, or engaged people to unpack this message even further.
In this dynamic companion to the book, Gary will help singles move on from the idea of finding a "soul mate" and adopt the more biblical idea of finding their "sole mate," as they seek to dedicate their future marriages to God. Eight thought-provoking video sessions featuring Gary Thomas lead groups through the study. This DVD also includes study questions designed to facilitate group discussion, interaction, and practical application.
