Overview

There have been many books written on "how to be single."

This isn't one of them.

"The Misinterpreted Gospel of Singleness" is a book written by Khristi Adams. She offers up a cultural critique of myths surrounding singleness in the Christian community. Khristi describes the misinterpreted gospel of singleness as;

"a negative message- oftentimes unintentional- communicated to individuals over a period of time that causes them to adopt unhealthy views of self and relationships."

Each chapter analyzes a different myth, includes authentic, emotional & personal stories and offers up positive alternatives. The book is not anti-marriage, but instead a celebration of singleness in the same way that our culture celebrates the beauty of marriage.
