In his new book, The Sacred Search, best-selling author Gary Thomas tackles the topic of love and dating by asking the question: What if it's not about who you marry, but why? The Sacred Search Study Resource is a DVD-driven Bible study for small groups of single, dating, or engaged people to unpack this message even further. In this dynamic companion to the book, Gary will help singles move on from the idea of finding a "soul mate" and adopt the more biblical idea of finding their "sole mate," as they seek to dedicate their future marriages to God. Eight thought-provoking video sessions featuring Gary Thomas lead groups through the study. This DVD also includes study questions designed to facilitate group discussion, interaction, and practical application.

What if there’s no such thing as “the one”—but there’s something even better? Many of us grew up with the idea that one day we would find a “soul mate.” In fact, the idea of a soul mate is ours, not God’s. God’s design is far greater. Asking the provocative question, “What if being in love isn’t a good enough reason to get married?” Gary explores how, in God’s design, getting married to share a common spiritual mission leads us to the greatest joy of all. In this eight-session DVD companion to Gary’s book The Sacred Search, you’ll explore with Gary why it’s so important to know the why of marriage before you know the who of marriage. Together you’ll look at: · Why you should never marry for mercy· Whether you should wait for God to bring you a spouse, or whether He calls you to actively pursue a wise marriage· What great sex really means· Why you don’t want what you think you want· Why the myth of “the one” is so destructive, how it leads so many people into foolish marriages, and what the biblical alternative is· Where God is leading you in your search for a kingdom-centered marriage Here you’ll discover encouragement and practical advice for building a relationship with eternal purposes at heart. Designed to be used with the accompanying study guide in groups, as individuals, or as a couple.
