Through biblical, historical, cultural, and theological insights, Dani Treweek skillfully delves into a comprehensive exploration of this often-misunderstood aspect of Christian life and crafts a compelling theology of singleness.

By Drawing upon both ancient and contemporary theologians, including Augustine, Ælfric of Eynsham, John Paul II, and Stanley Hauerwas, she contends not only that singleness has served an important role throughout the church’s history, but that single Christians present the church with a foretaste of the eschatological reality that awaits all of God’s people.

Far from being a burden, Treweek beautifully demonstrates that Christian singleness stands as one of the highest vocations of faith. Each chapter of the book unfolds a rich tapestry of knowledge, carefully arranged to provide a clear understanding of the subject matter. Here is a brief overview of the insightful chapters:

Part One: The Context of Singleness

  • Singleness in Society
