Are you single?  Or do you feel single?  Wendy Widder has looked at Hebrews 11 and has found people from the Bible who took their singleness seriously since it came from God, and used it to better their lives.  This book also includes examples from her own life.

Being single is not a curse, it is a gift from God.

About the Author-

Wendy Widder has a blog at  She has also written several other books, A Match Made in Heaven and The Forest and the Trees: Helping Teachers Integrate a Biblical Worldview Across the Curriculum.

My thoughts-

I have not read many books about being single, as I am not single, but I thought Living Whole Without a Better Half, by Wendy Widder, was an excellent.  I thought it was interesting how she included people from the Bible who have had dealings with singleness.

She first went to Hebrews 11 where she found people from the Bible like Jacob, Abraham, and Moses.  Then she told their stories along with her to make the point of the chapter.  I found that she did a good job of including everything about being single.  Even if you are not single there are topics like living through pain, living with perseverance, and living in worship that apply.

I was most pleased when I read the study and discussion questions at the end of each chapter.  I really enjoyed being able to read the questions to refresh my memory about what happened in the chapter and to dig deeper into the subject matter.

I highly recommend this book to singles everywhere.
