Brazos Press Singled Out: Why Celibacy Must Be Reinvented in Today's Church - eBook

Authors Christine Colon and Bonnie Field thought that by a certain age they would each be married. But they watched that age come and go-and still no walks down the aisle.

In Singled Out, Colon and Field reflect on their experience-and that of an increasing number of Christians-as they try to reconcile God's plan for their lives with the messages they receive about singleness from the world around them. Here, Colon and Field explore a deeper understanding of celibacy that affirms singles' decision to be sexually pure, acknowledges their struggles, and recognizes their importance in the church community.

Thoughtful and compelling, Singled Out combines references to popular culture, theology, history, literature, and anecdotes from the authors' lives. It is an invaluable voice of realistic encouragement for any single as well as an important tool for church leaders and others concerned with mission and ministry for singles.

An excellent book, very encouraging. The authors do not shy away from tackling difficult yet pertinent questions that are being quietly asked by a mature single person.

This is a subject in which I have developed a great deal of interest. I am a christian and single. The book deals with questions I have regarding the way single Christians are viewed by the evangelical church. It shows that we all do not have to be married but need to be accepted just like the married. It also deals with the idea that men have a responsibility in this just as women do. Women who sleep around are still viewed as the bad one for men this is not so. It was good to see that secular society is beginning to see the good of sexual restraint. I believe all churches need to take a good hard look at what is being said in this book. I would suggest bible studies use this book as a area of study. It also lets the church know that there are older christian singles and they need help in the path to take. No one talks about what you are to do sexually when you realize the right one is not coming. This is a great book.
