Singleness is too hard -- Singleness requires a special calling -- Singleness means no intimacy -- Singleness means no family -- Singleness is a hindrance to ministry -- Singleness wastes your sexuality -- Singleness is easy.
Many people believe that singleness is primarily about the absence of good things like intimacy, family, or meaningful ministry. But the Bible paints a very different picture of singleness: it is a positive gift and blessing from God. Allberry seeks to help Christians value singleness as a gift from God so that we can all encourage singles to take hold of the unique opportunities their singleness affords and see their role in the flourishing of the church as a whole. -- adapted from back cover
