For generations, the predominant message in the church has been that to live a complete and happy life, one must marry and have children. And while this does bring joy and fulfillment for many, other Christians are called to a life of singleness—or become single due to the death of a spouse or divorce. Pastor Barry Danylak was inspired to write Singleness in God's Redemptive Story based on his own experience in the church as a single person, combined with his study and reflection on singleness in Scripture.
This compelling condensed theology examines the topic theologically in relationship to the developing biblical narrative, focusing on how marriage and singleness relate to the Old and New Testament covenants, the theological motif of offspring, as well as the singleness of Jesus and Paul.
Singleness in God's Redemptive Story will greatly benefit Christian singles in understanding how they are fully complete in Christ and will equip pastors and church leaders with an understanding of the theological significance of singleness within the flow of redemption history. This concise biblical theology is a must-read for all those in ministry leadership.
With thought-provoking discussion questions at the end of each chapter, Singleness in God's Redemptive Story can be read individually or used as a small group study guide.
