Book: Shift the Christian singleness perspective

BY C.E. White Books

Our culture often makes us feel like our lives aren’t complete without romance, sex, a spouse, or at least, a significant other. Single Isn’t Second-Best—a new release by Philip Wilder and C.E. White—pushes back against that idea.

Single Isn’t Second-Best reminds singles that their lives are not incomplete. God has a unique plan for each of us, and he doesn’t short-change our purpose if that life doesn’t include a spouse. In the 1950s, the number of married people was nearly double that of singles. This gap has been shrinking ever since, and the groups are now almost equal, yet the topic is rarely addressed. Wilder says, “We wrote this book so singles would feel heard, understood, and valued. It’s the book I wish I’d had when I was a young single.”

This book helps singles who may desire marriage find contentment in the life they have and reveals some of the unrealistic ideas many have about marriage. It also tackles the hard things like loneliness, sex, the desire for kids, and gives practical advice on moving forward in life even if you don’t have everything you want. Single Isn’t Second-Best is the book every young single needs to help them embrace their lives now and place their identity and hope not in their relationship status, but in Christ.

Single Isn’t Second-Best (ISBN 979-8-9864293-2-8, Hardcover, $22.95; ISBN 979-8-9864293-0-4, Paperback, $14.95; ISBN 979-8-9864293-1-1, Ebook, $4.99, 290 pages) is available on Amazon.
