Book: Singled Out

There are not many books written about the issue of singleness - and many of the ones that are around are cringeworthy!  Having read about this book over year ago through a review that Tamie did on her blog, I've been keen to have a read.

Singled Out: Why Celibacy Must Be Reinvented in Today's Church is a book worth reading.  The authors (two single women) are mature and honest in the way they approach the topic and look at both Christian culture and general society's view of celibacy.  They do a good job of critiquing myths around the issue and in building some alternative frameworks.  Definitely a good read for both single and married people, as it's as much a book for the whole church as for single people.  However, I reckon single people in their thirties and older would particularly find it a refreshing read.

Have a look at Tamie's post for a more thorough review.
