By the end of the century it is estimated that 45 percent of adults will live alone. The Christian church has already arrived at this statistic - almost half of all adult church members are single, divorced or widowed. For some, singleness is a chosen way of life but for many others it is regarded as second best. Long-term singleness can result in a crippling sense of isolation and anxiety which in itself dooms many potential new friendships from the start. Beyond Singleness shows how these personal pitfalls can be avoided and how the 'real person' inside can be nurtured and cared for, so that relationships with others become more honest, rewarding and enriching. Beyond Singleness is a book for both the married and the single as it attempts to bridge the gap which can exist between the two. It looks at how some unhelpful stereotyped ideas can be challenged and changed and how communication and understanding can be developed.
