The Bible holds many examples of adult singles—including Paul, John the Baptist, and Anna—who lived godly, Christ-honoring lives. Through their examples, author David Hoffeditz leads the way to spiritual freedom in the midst of living single today.

From the Back Cover:

Our culture is inundated with conflicting views about single life. Even in the church preconceptions and biases exist, including such notions as: an individual is “complete” only when married, contentment is the litmus test for the “gift” of singleness, and only married persons should serve in leadership roles.

In this book, author David Hoffeditz takes a fresh new look at singleness by examining the lives of eight individuals from Scripture who were single at some point in their adult lives—Paul, Anna, Martha, Jeremiah, Ruth, Joseph, Nehemiah, and John the Baptist. By studying their lives and situations, Hoffeditz explores how God intends single men and women to live and demonstrates how one can truly serve God and be single.

“This is a thoughtful, thought-provoking, and biblical study of singleness—an often overlooked subject. The author, himself single, examines the biblical material and honestly interacts, often from his own experiences, with the inevitable questions that arise.”

—Charles C. Ryrie
Author, the Ryrie Study Bible notes

“The voice of a single male in a genre dominated by female voices is a welcome addition. In this helpful study, David Hoffeditz opens his heart and shares the truth, not merely pointing singles in the right direction but walking along with them.”

—Wendy Widder
Author, Living Whole Without a Better Half and A Match Made in Heaven

“David Hoffeditz has creatively addressed the world of singleness by looking at the lives of eight unmarried biblical characters. Hoffeditz makes us rethink God’s working through His servants and draws practical applications for the lives of singles in today’s world.”

—William E. Brown
President, Cedarville University

David Hoffeditz (Ph.D., University of Aberdeen) is assistant professor of Bible and Greek at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio, and an associate pastor at Rocky Point Chapel in Springfield, Ohio. While he is single, he stays busy traveling and spending time with students.

About the Author:

David M. Hoffeditz is cofounder and director of Ancient Tours, which leads several tours a year to biblical lands, and president of Iron-2-Iron Ministries. He also teaches part time at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Hoffeditz has authored iVocab Greek materials and was a contributing author to What the New Testament Authors Really Cared About.

Book Description Kregel Publications,U.S., United States, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For singles who want to live a godly, biblical life amid all the issues of singleness, there can be no better examples than the lives of Bible characters who have blazed the trail. Years ago, David Hoffeditz was presented with a question: How does one walk with the Lord in the midst of living single? Countless books have been written on the topic--how to cope with singleness, how to begin a thriving singles ministry, and how to provide an inspirational Kumbaya land --but there are no thorough studies about what the Bible says and what the biblical singles have to say. After struggling with the issue, Hoffeditz realized that there were biblical figures that had been single at some point in their adult lives--Paul, John the Baptist, Anna, Joseph, Ruth, and three others. And through studying their lives and situations, Hoffeditz reached the conclusion that liberates singles from the shackles placed by themselves and others. He realized that these preconceived notions, biases, and cultural ideals must give way to the wisdom of God s Word. In this thorough examination of singleness in Scripture, singles will discover, as the author did, spiritual freedom in the midst of living single. Seller Inventory # AAJ9780825427763
