Product Description

For many, "single" is not just a filing status on a tax return but a public declaration that they are disappointed, discontented, and waiting around to start life. Whether single by choice or circumstance, they may find, like Wendy Widder did, that well-meaning advice and platitudes about God's care are less than helpful when they're just trying to figure out--like everyone else--how to live life well.

Singles will find the unvarnished truth here. Instead of cherry-picking biblical "promises," Widder turns to Hebrews 11. She examines the lives of biblical heroes such as Abraham, Moses and Jacob to show readers how to embrace singleness as a God-given gift that can provide abundant life. Includes discussion questions for group study.

    The book is ok. I haven't finished it. I don't seem to be as interested in it once I got into the book.

    Singleness was not something Widder dreamed of as a little girl. "It was something I prayed only happened to other people." (15) If that resonates with you, this is a good book for you to read.

    She identifies two faulty assumptions - that God will give us what we want just because we follow Him, and that singleness is somehow second-rate. She writes about "God questions," those questions to which we have no answers. "If I'll marry, who I'll marry, when I'll marry..." (38) God is the only one who knows the answers and He's not talking.

    Using the stories of Old Testament heroes, she writes about the secret of contentment, a new perspective on pain, choosing a life of perseverance, living through rejection, living after rebellion, a perspective on worship, living with purpose, living beyond fear, and living without distraction.

    Widder deals with the tough issues and emotions of singleness. She does this in the context of biblical story so it is not as specific as I've seen in other books on singles. The issues she deals with are ones common to all fallen people: loneliness, pain, rejection, unanswered questions, etc.

    This book also contains some thoughts married folks need to think about. For example, "While everyone needs encouragement, singles especially need people who will walk with them." (87) Singles don't have the built-in support system of a spouse. Singles need "friends who can lend faithful support and encouragement." (88)

    Very good "Study and Discussion Questions" section has been added at the end of each chapter so this would make a good selection for a small group.

    Food for thought: "If there's not joy in singleness, there won't by joy in marriage either." (41)

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
