What if you stopped looking for a “soul mate” and started looking for a “sole mate”—someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God? What if dating isn’t about finding “the one” but making a wise choice so you can better serve the One who loves you most? What if God didn’t design relationships to make you happy but to make you holy? In The Sacred Search, Gary Thomas will transform the way you look at romantic relationships. Whether you are single, dating, or engaged, Gary’s unique perspective on dating will prepare you for a satisfying, spiritually enriching marriage even before you walk down the aisle. As Gary reminds us, a good marriage is not something you find—it’s something you make.

Awesome insight, tough love
It's hard for me to attest to the entirety of this book's accuracy due to my maturing single state. However, I learned a lot, was provoked a lot, and was only moderately discouraged by the standards with which Gary calls the pursuer of a marriage partner to be. Read and be enriched.
Only book I’ll read more than once
After a breakup, my mentor recommended I read this book. I didn’t take her advice at first because I hate reading, but she persisted and thank God she did. This book helped me see the purpose of marriage, the value of patience, and the importance of picking a well-suited partner. It really is the only book I can read over and over and over again.
Great book; with both simple and impactful tips on what it means to build a relationship through the ways of a good and mighty God who brings forth great restoration through the gift of marriage.
