With One Voice
Singleness, Dating, and Marriage to the Glory of God
Christians are fighting against a conflicting cultural ethos; reducing the beauty of God-invented sexuality to just another entertainment option. However, lifelong marriage, though less common today, is still God’s plan for most people… and isn’t God’s plan the best plan? Alex and Marni Chediak from their experience of singles and college ministry, multi-generational small group ministry, offer wise guidance in how we should go about choosing a partner. They seek to glorify God with one voice, sharing the life goal of being marked mainly as those who love God.
“Having laid a foundation for understanding the nature of the marriage partnership, he provides practical, biblical wisdom on making a wise choice of partner. With One Voice provides a biblical perspective on the increasingly difficult issues surrounding marriage and dating. It shines the light of God’s Word on this topic and shows that God’s perspective has not changed.” — Tim Challies
“Alex Chediak has done a great service for anyone seeking guidance on how to handle singleness, dating and marriage for the glory of God. If you’re a parent thinking about how to guide your kids through the dating years or a single person navigating those waters, the one voice of this book speaks with sanity, clarity, and godliness.” — James M. Hamilton, Professor of Biblical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
“If only courtship and marriage were so simple that all we needed was a manual to figure them out! The Chediak’s give us something better: a compass and a travel guide. Our true focus must be the glory of God: get that straight and everything else will fall into place; miss it and nothing works. The Chediak’s also have the warmth, wisdom and good humor of ones who know the road and its potholes!”
— Ben Patterson, College Pastor, Westmont College
“Sound biblical advice and a clear Christian framework for working through the maze of confusions surrounding modern marriage. Christian young and old, single or married, will find help in this concise book.”
— R. Albert Mohler, President, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
