Statistics show that life as a single person has become a common experience and singleness is the new normal. Single Christians can experience rich and satisfying lives that are blessed by God when they understand that Christ, not marriage, completes them. Explaining biblical truths about singleness and offering pastoral, practical advice for how to live a God-glorifying life, Joel R. Beeke and Paul M. Smalley show singles in the church how they can see their singleness as God’s will for them and a means to glorify and enjoy God forever.

“As an older, lifelong, single Christian, I recommend this booklet to my fellow Christian singles as a helpful summary of biblical principles, advice, and promises. May it encourage you in your loneliness with the reminder that God knows, God cares, and God really does love you.”
