10 Books for Singles

I recently started a bookish sort of journey to discover the best books for singles. You know what I've found? There is a shocking lack of good books in singleness. However, even with that being the case, I found a few gems amidst a lot of coal. 

Two of the gems I found were tiny, can be read in one sitting but were precious. Waiting for Isaac by Jessica Greyson is a tiny book, but it is filled with so much encouragement. With her normal straightforward biblical advice, Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth's book Singled Out for Him has a lot to chew on. 

Maybe you are looking for a more general outlook on singleness? Kingdom Single by Tony Evans has been one of the best general books (though some content is not for younger readers). I love his honesty as a married man on his own limitations, but also his vision for what Christian singleness can be. However, some younger readers or those coming to terms t want to start with Beyond Waiting by Rebekah Snyder. This is a wonderful book about embracing singleness. 

Perhaps you are looking for fiction with singles? While not everyone is still single at the end, I adored Emma and the Reasons by Natasha Metzler. It spoke deeply to my soul. Well, the same can be said for the novella Wedding Score by Amanda Tero.

7 Myths of Singleness by Sam Allberry was a gift from my siblings for my birthday. I appreciated seeing this from a guy's perspective. I loved both the affirmation and the call to action in this book. However, nothing beats reading about people who've lived it. Fierce Convictions: The Extraordinary Life of Hannah More by Karen Swallow Prior, while a little dry in places, felt like balm to my soul. Here is the story of a woman of deep faith and moral convictions who changed history (for good) as a single lady. If you want a little more modern Love, Amy by Amy Young is just the thing. While not strictly about singleness, this single woman serving in China was such a blessing. 

My absolute favorite, so far, has been Living Whole Without a Better Half by Wendy Widder. The author's skill with words is amazing. Her love of Jesus and her use of scripture is wonderful. I think this is the kind of book you could get a lot out of even if you weren't single. 

Do you have a favorite book on singleness?
