Singleness, Marriage, and the Will of God
A Comprehensive Biblical Guide
A comprehensive Biblical guide to the subject of singleness and marriage, from the authors of the 40-year best-seller, Decision Making and the Will of God.
Not everyone will marry or should, but virtually all single adults think about marriage. And all make decisions that either maintain their singleness or attempt to change it.
This book offers in-depth answers to help singles apply biblical principles to critical choices.
* Do I want to get married?
* Are there good reasons to remain single?
* What sort of person should I consider as a potential spouse?
* How do I look for a mate?
* What should I do if no spouse shows up?
* What is God’s role in the decision-making process?
This comprehensive volume will equip readers to make wise choices about marriage according to the will of God. It’s also an invaluable resource for parents, counselors, and pastors.
