Indee it was a well-balanced and honest effort to not portray singleness/not-yet-married as a curse, or as a gift ( that many wish came with a return receipt), or as " junior varsity Christians ", but as fallen sinners redeemed through Christ who are pursuing God 's glory and fighting for joy just like married, except in different ways.

I usually stay away from books about dating/marriage because as a single oman in her ate teens, I 'm sick of all the christianese platitudes that well meaning people spout at me.

( I have not fished this book, so my review is limited to the secon half which covers singleness).

Anothe diverse data pool is necessary for novel of this nature and is unfortunately lacking.Singleness in the Church is such a huge topic with lots of fascinating nuances, yet his book touches nearly none of it.

Where is the chapter on the spiritual gift of singleness?

Where is the chapter on singleness for homosexual Christians?

Where are the chapters on the impact of gender, race and culture?

Where is the chapter on the Church 's ostracization of singleness and emphasis on marriage?

There is o much to talk about, yet Segal always seems to circuitously return complaints about life before marriage and never ventures into anything more dynamic.This book utterly fails in its objective to pursue " joy in singleness ".

Single Christians are a blessing and are blessed, but adly his is much ignored both in his essa and in Christian culture as a whole.

Having followed Marshall Segal 's articles on singleness and dating for quite some time, I wa a retty good idea of how his book would unfold.

Chapter 15 is filled with wisdom on having accountability during the dating season.

Whether you are fearful of marriage, idolizing marriage or a little bit of both this book migh expose your fears and idols and point you back to Jesus.
