1 Is a Whole Number
Single adults are everywhere, coming in a variety of shapes, sizes, and circumstances. They include the never-married, single parents, the widowed, the divorced, and the separated. Each segment of singleness carries its own package of problems, predicaments, and peculiarities, but it also represents a huge range of talent, skill, and potential. Single adults in scripture illustrate all categories of singleness. As they walked through the challenges of life, their experiences relate well to the problems faced by modern-day single adults. In this book, you will follow the dramatic journeys of: – Hagar, on being a single parent. – Joseph, on triumphing over sexual temptation. – Ruth, on finding a husband the second time round. – Elijah, on dealing with depression. – Mary Magdalene, on leaving the past behind. – Daniel, on being a Biblical leader in a pagan society. – Lydia, on preventing burnout. – Paul, on passionately proclaiming the gospel. – The woman at the well of Sychar, on life after divorce. – John the Baptist, on radical discipleship. Their life lessons are legendary, and they stand tall in God’s Hall of Fame. From them, you will discover that one really is a whole number! And finally, there was Jesus, the sovereign Lord and perfect single man who invites us to learn from Him. About the Author: Robert (Bob) Tauber has been a pastor in Canada for over fifty years.
