Where to find this new book on singleness and celibacy.
Singled Out: Why Celibacy Must Be Reinvented in Today's Church
Christine Colón, Bonnie Field
Brazos Press / 2009 / Paperback
Christianbook.com describes the book:
Authors Christine Colon and Bonnie Field thought that by a certain age they would each be married. But they watched that age come and go-and still no walks down the aisle.
In Singled Out, Colon and Field reflect on their experience-and that of an increasing number of Christians-as they try to reconcile God's plan for their lives with the messages they receive about singleness from the world around them. Here, Colon and Field explore a deeper understanding of celibacy that affirms singles' decision to be sexually pure, acknowledges their struggles, and recognizes their importance in the church community.
Thoughtful and compelling, Singled Out combines references to popular culture, theology, history, literature, and anecdotes from the authors' lives. It is an invaluable voice of realistic encouragement for any single as well as an important tool for church leaders and others concerned with mission and ministry for singles.
