They Were Single Too: Eight Biblical Role Models
Publisher: Kregel Publications
Price: $2.99 (Nov 22-23)
Singleness is not a sin that needs to be redeemed. Yet for many single Christians, the way the church regards them often feels condemning. Living between these truths can be a painful, frustrating experience.
By examining eight individuals from Scripture who were single at some point in their adult lives–Paul, Anna, Martha, Jeremiah, Ruth, Joseph, Nehemiah, and John the Baptist–Hoffeditz guides readers through common struggles singles face, such as loneliness and disappointment.
Hoffeditz isn’t offering a self-help guide, a twelve-step program to recovery, or philosophical musings. They Were Single Too spells out concrete steps for a healthy, God-approved attitude toward unmarried life and how one can truly serve God without a spouse. Brief chapters with questions for reflection allow for either individual or group study.
Long used as a resource for singles ministries, this revised edition updates the language of this timeless biblical study and makes it more attractive for today’s reader.
