Living Whole without a Better Half

Full Product Description

How to live happily ever after when your prince or princess never shows up. There are more singles in - and out of - the church today than ever before.

Wendy Widder knows the struggles of being single from the inside out, and she has something to say, both to her fellow never-marrieds and to the church that often makes them feel like second-class citizens.While there is no shortage of books about singlehood on the market, Widder's approach is markedly different.

Living Whole Without a Better Half is one of the few that doesn't offer a solution or a kind of "get married quick" scheme to solve the single "problem." Instead, Widder shows readers how to embrace singleness as an abundant life and a God-given gift, not as an unfortunate stage they should move past as quickly as possible. By examining the lives of biblical heroes such as Abraham, Moses, and Jacob, she reveals that trying to bargain with God to follow our plans and timing often keeps us from appreciating the opportunities he places in our path.

Widder makes her case with wit and a wry humour that readers will appreciate and come back to again and again. Now with updated statistics, and a new preface, Living Whole Without a Better Half includes study questions that make it a great Bible study or small group resource.

Widder also updates readers on her journey of singleness and refines her theology and application to reflect her twelve years of graduate school in biblical studies.

Living Whole without a Better Half by Wendy Widder was published by Kregel Publications in May 2014. The ISBN for Living Whole without a Better Half is 9780825443435.

"This book was truly a blessing to read. It helped me as a single woman to take the focus off myself and place it on serving my Lord the best that I can. I have recommended this book to other singles in my church and they have all received a blessing from reading it. As a single, we have opportunities to serve that someone who is married does not have. This book helped me to realize that I am important to God and need to serve Him now while I am single and not to wait until I am married. " other retailer reader review
