A single friend of mine wrote this about the book:"Thank you Wendy Widder for writing a candid yet realistic book on singleness! As a single Christian woman in my early forties I've been very disappointed with other books on the 'singleness' topic and their overall portrayal of singleness as a negative state of being and a season of life to abhor and, quite frankly, resent if prolonged."Thankfully, Wendy doesn't tell me 'What to do until love finds me' or to 'pray harder since my clock is ticki [...]

After agreeing to read this book I knew that I was up against a challenge because this book was written the single woman. For over 33 years now I have been married, so I’m thinking that I just might not be the one qualified and knowledgeable in this domain to judge such a book or its contents on the subject.Yet at my grand surprise this book was not at all the kind of book that I was expecting. In fact what was I expecting after all? I don’t really know! Maybe a woman feeling sorry and whini [...]

No matter if you are single for the reason that you want to be or due to not finding the right mate, ‘Living Whole without a Better Half’ is an insightful, wonderful read. Wendy will take you on a journey through parts her life that all single or married folk can find something to relate to. She describes in short stories how she lives on her own and how it can be lonely and rafted with ongoing challenges. She expresses how she has managed without a spouse, and how she has learned to rely on [...]

I read Living Whole Without a Better Half: Biblical Truth for the Single Life by Wendy Widder, in exchange for honest review from Kregel Blog Tours. I wanted to review the book because many people believe being single can be not fulfilling. You are not whole, unless you say I Do. That should not be the case. If you come in a relationship whole and (s)he comes in a relationship whole, the relationship would be so much better. Coming in with expectations, a relationship will fulfill you completely [...]

I received a free copy of this book through First Reads.Widder is a good writer. She takes the reader on a walk through memorable stories and characters in the Bible, mostly from the Old Testament, and relates them tangentially to the single life and a relationship with God.The author is very positive and does not give promises that other books on the single life do, such as to wait and pray for your man to come. She points out that singleness is, in fact, a gift from God. However, the book lac [...]

The book could be used by single or married it has bible stories and compares them into modern life. Wendy does have some things you don't think about that get said when you are single. interesting stories of how god in her life helps and how everyone can stray from the road sometimes to better themselves before rejoining the road. Study questions are there if you want to use personally I did not. Found some advise well meaning and will take on board but if someone needed a lot of help felt it d [...]

I don't know what possesses me to read books like this, but I did, so here it goes.While I did gather some bits of info/encouragement here and there, for the most part this book didn't sit right with me. The biggest problem was that I had a hard time making the leap between an example she would provide and then some Scripture to go with it. Sometimes the comparisons didn't work or they didn't make sense. She also read into some of the Biblical stories things that weren't there, which took my att [...]

Widder uses stories of biblical heroes to explores issues singles face. This is a good study of the issues, in a general sense, not as specific as other books on singles I have seen. The issues, loneliness, fear, etc are ones faced by fallen people in general. This book would be a good choice for a Christian singles class or small group. There are questions for discussion.See my complete review at bit/1tdvLBk.I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an i [...]

One of the better books I've read on Christian singleness. Widder is a great writer who goes through several characters of Hebrews 11 to talk about how to walk through Christian singleness in a mature and faithful manner. Widder does write more specifically to single women at times. There is nothing wrong with this, but I do think she misses the intricacies of what it is like to live as a single man. There are a few points I felt were missing, but Widder's book is an essential read on the topic [...]
