Full Product Description

Vicar and New Wine speaker, Kate Wharton, encourages those who face the challenge if single life within the church.

The ‘couples culture’ is everywhere: church family events, valentine’s day, cinema, popular music and even supermarket offers. Being single can often mean you are singled-out. But Kate wants to encourage Christians, holding singleness up as a unique opportunity for holiness, personal development and Christian living.

In her book, Kate tackles the common challenges many face when reconciling their relational choices:
•    Issues of Identity: church roles, social invitations and being whole without an ‘other half’
•    Finance: learning to live alone when it’s cheaper to live with others
•    Sexual Pressure: staying pure, in thinking as well as action
•    Friendship: how to be ‘just friends’ with the opposite sex
•    Calling: when the cost of obedience is to stay single
•    Divorce or Bereavement: learning to be single again

“When we are sold out for God,” she says, “then life will be the very best that it can be – whether married or single, with children or without – because we will be on our way to becoming who we were created to be.”

Publisher's Description

We live in a couples culture, where a partner, if not a spouse, is assumed; where the expectation is that unmarried people will be sexually active even if not in a committed relationship. But what about those who because of their faith, or their preferences, choose to remain celibate until they find Mr or Miss Right?

Kate Wharton tackles directly and compassionately the questions that this choice throws up: issues of identity (church roles and social invitations alike too often assume 'a couple'); finance (it is much cheaper to live together than alone); sexual pressure (staying pure, in thought as well as deed); friendship (including being friends with the opposite sex) and calling (the cost of obedience may preclude marriage). What challenges face those who, through divorce or death, are single again?

This positive, honest book will be a source of wisdom and comfort to anyone who is single, whether or not they expect to remain so.
