In the twenty-fourth chapter of Genesis a beautiful young woman offers assistance to a weary traveler and his camels, and out of that simple action, a marriage results-a marriage that offers profound lessons to couples today. Bible scholar and renowned speaker Ravi Zacharias draws five points critical to the long-lasting success of every marriage from the biblical story of the marriage of Isaac and Rebekah. "Real love folds together both the emotions and the will," writes Zacharias. "Without the emotions, marriage is a drudgery; without the will, it is a mockery." Building upon that foundational truth, Zacharias goes on to explain the principles of seeking the counsel of others when finding a mate, cherishing your partner, remaining pure, becoming a man or woman of prayer, and, finally, risking everything in a relationship in order to experience God's ideal for love. Couples everywhere, from those about to be married, to those who have been married for decades, will draw strength and wisdom for the journey of marriage as they learn from Ravi what it means to move from romance to lasting love.

This is not your ordinary love story. In the second chapter of Genesis, a marriage takes place between a man and a woman that pales in comparison to the hypnotism of modern-day romance. This union bears little semblance to the excessively romanticized 21st century courtship, engagement, and wedding. Their matrimony is solely driven by purpose, a concept typically foreign to the new age of passion-fuelled relationships. Youth speaker and Christian author, Jude Addo, draws upon life-changing experiences during his betrothal that unveil some hard truths about love, relationships, and life in general. This book speaks to the trials and triumphs that come with obeying the voice of God, whilst challenging the status quo on several religious and sociological matters. A man of refreshing candour, Addo, cleverly uses his engagement period as a thrilling backdrop to take the reader on a voyage of spiritual enlightenment.

Authors Christine Colón and Bonnie Field thought that by a certain age they would each be married. But they watched that age come and go--and still no walks down the aisle. In Singled Out, they reflect on their experience--and that of an increasing number of Christians. Rejecting overly simplistic messages from the church about "waiting for marriage," they explore a deeper understanding of celibacy that affirms singles' decision to be sexually pure, acknowledges their struggles, and recognizes their importance in the church community. Thoughtful and accessible, Singled Out is an invaluable voice of realistic encouragement for any single as well as an important tool for church leaders and others concerned with mission and ministry for singles.
