They Were Single Too, Book Review

They Were Single Too, by David M. Hoffeditz 

Singleness is not a sin that needs to be redeemed. Yet for many single Christians, the way the church regards them often feels condemning. Living between these truths can be a painful, frustrating experience.
By examining eight individuals from Scripture who were single at some point in their adult lives - Paul, Anna, Martha, Jeremiah, Ruth, Joseph, Nehemiah, and John the Baptist - Hoffeditz guides readers through common struggles singles face, such as loneliness and disappointment.
Hoffeditz isn't offering a self-help guide, a twelve-step program to recovery, or philosophical musings. They Were Single Too spells out concrete steps for a healthy, God-approved attitude toward unmarried life and how one can truly serve God without a spouse. Brief chapters with questions for reflection allow for either individual or group study.
Long used as a resource for singles ministries, this revised edition updates the language of this timeless biblical study and makes it more attractive for today's reader.
My Thoughts: I was given this book from the publisher so I could review it and am very happy I got the chance to do so. It's so often that people think of their life only as a couple like "oh when I'm married" or "my spouse and I" that they often lose sight of their own life. I'm so glad they released this updated version of They Were Single Too goes into that and gives those of us who are single a guide book.
