Getting Serious about Getting Married: Rethinking the Gift of Singleness

By Debbie Maken

... Show All

"Singleness is… the kind of gift that makes us cringe and smile politely while we desperately search for a gift receipt."

Singleness is a "gift;" at least that's what we've been taught. But if singleness is a gift, then why does it make us feel so miserable so often? Does God really want his children to embrace a gift they resent so much?

Widely accepted in the church today is the view that singleness is a gift equal to marriage. The biblical benefits of marriage and God's command to marry have been severely downplayed. Guiding us through the Scriptures and dialoguing with experts, Debbie Maken exposes the erroneous thinking in our culture and helps restore a vision of God's design for marriage.
