I wish I could have read this book when I was in my thirties. During my thirties, I struggled a lot with my single status. Now as a forty something single woman, I realize that God may have something better for me than marriage. I realize that marriage cannot make you happy. One must be happy and content with Christ. I am a complete, whole person regardless of my marital status or station in life. I wish books like this were in Christian bookstores before the Internet came into being. It used to be extremely difficult to find books dealing with single people and the Christian life. Many churches don't help the situation either. They tend to make single people feel inferior, like if they are less than adult if they aren't married and have 2.5 kids and live in the suburbs. In the New Testament, Jesus Himself was a single adult in His thirties. He reached out to the people who were downcast, sick and oppressed with all sorts of afflictions. I am sure some of these people were single adults, like the man who was infirm for 38 years, Lazarus, Mary Magdalene, and others. Jesus was very tender and compassionate to these people, who were probably outcasts in the culture that they lived in. I wish that more churches would reach out to single adults in every stage of life and began to affirm them as worthwhile people. One need not to have a spouse in order to be whole and complete. Many people today get married for selfish reasons, only to end up in divorce court later on. In his book, Mr. Cavanaugh states that being single is not a curse or a sign of failure and that marriage is not God's ultimate will for one's life. I really enjoyed this book and it has helped to start a healing process in my own life. I want to be able to serve Jesus Christ in the best way that I can, with the time that I have left on this earth.

If you are single, you must read this book. I found this book on a bargains table at a Christian Ed conference. Now, I wish I had bought all the copies!! The book made me cry time and again as I recognized my selfish attitudes about my singleness. I now realize that being single is a unique opportunity to get to know God better, free from distractions. And for those of you who, like me, thought it was a book for people who expect to remain single for the rest of their lives, it is not. But it will help you to be content, whatever your situation. It will help you to realize what God's purpose is for your life, and it will bring you peace and joy and hope for the future. Please get this book back in print, I want to give copies to all my single friends, so it can bless them as it blessed me!

I really enjoyed this book. This is now one of my favorite books. It helped me to refocus my view of my status in life as a Single Adult. It helped me to develop a renewed desire to know God better. It reminded me that I am important to Him - JUST AS I AM - SINGLE. My hat is off to Michael Cavanaugh whom God gave the ability to communicate these concepts to people so appropriately. What are you waiting for? Read the book!

This is by far the best book I've ever read concerning life as a single Christian adult. Author Michael Cavanaugh deals with so many of the problems that we face in the world today. He raises a Godly standard, and in simple, straightforward language, he teaches and encourages his readers to fight the good fight of faith. The book takes a no-nonsense approach, and shows how compromise very often leads to misery, but walking in the way that God has set before us will strengthen us, and give us His peace and fulfillment, whether we ever marry or not. I've read it four times, and plan on reading it again.

You know this book has really refreshed my convictions on the beauty of singlehood and I can't wait to dive into this book with our Single's Ministry SOUL. The book gives a serious wake up call on just how much purpose and fulfillment resides in the single status. So what are we waiting for?!?! I felt motivated, encouraged, many times humbled, and overall convicted to embrace my life the more. I was one of those waiting to buy a house when I got married. I'm currently praying about a two year plan to own my first home! Bro. Cavanaugh Bravo!! and Praise God for your obedience to hear a clear plan for the single Christian adult. Please share this book with singles in your ministry. It covers so much and brings about radical change, not only in your natural needs, but the mindset...which truthfully controls a great deal of our decision making.
