Item description for Being Single in the Church Today: Insights from History And Personal Stories by Philip B. Wilson...

The model of the nuclear family unit, once the norm, is now only one of many different forms of family. Fifty percent of the population in the US right now is single. In this original and readable book, Philip Watson examines the phenomenon of singleness in contemporary society and its implications for ministry.

Wilson traces the history of the church's attitudes towards marriage and sexuality, from the early Church Fathers through the Reformation. In a series of direct interviews he probes how single people today feel within their church communities. His findings reveal that the vast majority of those questioned feel they are something of an embarrassing anomaly in communities that continue to prize marriage.

Finally, Wilson begins to develop a framework for a more nuanced approach to the subject of sexuality and relationships, and suggests ways in which the church, as primarily a community of love, can become the best forum in which single life can be discussed, articulated, assisted, and faithfully lived out.

Reviews - What do customers think about Being Single in the Church Today: Insights from History And Personal Stories?

Discussing the situations for churches in Britain, Ireland, Europe, and America  Apr 7, 2006
Written by a minister of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, Being Single in the Church Today: Insights from History and Personal Stories recognizes that an increasingly greater portion of modern society and those attending church are single, and examines the implications for church society and ministry. Discussing the situations for churches in Britain, Ireland, Europe, and America, Being Single in the Church Today looks plainly at issues of sexuality, the difficulty of finding a suitable partner, the shortage of single Christian men that puts single Christian women at a distinct disadvantage, interviews with numerous Christian singles about their experiences and perspectives, and much more. Supported by a careful gathering of statistics, Being Single in the Church Today does not fall back on a preachy tone or closed-minded attitudes, but honestly and realistically approaches how the church can best adapt to help single people nurture their faith.
