Description - Singles at the Crossroads by Albert Y. hus
Nearly half of today's adult population is unmarried. But most churches emphasize marriage and family, leaving many Christian singles feeling like marginalized, second-class citizens. Many suspect they would be more acceptable to the church - and God - if they "settled down" and got married. Albert Hsu challenges this point of view. Christian singles need neither more how-to books for meeting the perfect mate nor trite advice on suffering through the single life. What is lacking is a truly Christian understanding of singleness - what it means to be single and Christian. Hsu suggests that a balanced, biblical view is one that honors singleness as a status equal to marriage. Moving beyond pat answers, this book debunks the myth of the "gift of singleness"; works through issues of discerning God's will as a single; explains why searching for "the right one" can be misguided and even unbiblical; grapples with loneliness, aloneness, community, dating and sex; gives practical guidance for temptations singles face; and provides questions for individual or group study.
