I believe this is a valuable book for conversation not just for singles but for married Christians as well. The issues here so overlap with cross-gender friendship in the Christian community. This is not just a book for those who are single.
Christine Colon and Bonnie Field assume that all unmarried Christians should practice celibacy. "This is not to say that all single Christians should experience an undeniable 'call' from God or that they should make a life-long commitment to a living single, celibate life. It does not even mean that we believe that single Christians should not date or desire marriage. It simply means that Christians should abstain from sexual relationships for as long as they are single, whether that is for a short period of time of for their entire lives. We use the term 'celibacy' rather than 'abstinence' because the focus on abstinence tends to be on waiting for a future marriage. The type of celibacy we propose is focused on our relationship with God rather than a future marital relationship."
