The United States now has more single adults than any nation except China or India. Yet most pastors know precious little about this mushrooming population group composed of young and old never-been married, divorced and widowed singles-let alone how to minister to individual singles based on their special needs. Single Focus bridges this information gap by shining a spotlight on the mind-sets, morals and lifestyles of singles from all age groups-and probing everything from their heartfelt hopes to their unspoken fears. In the process, George Barna punctures some longstanding myths about singles and marriage with surprising facts like these: *Few single adults see themselves as loners who need to "get a life." Most are quite content with the life they have. *More than 12 million single parents have children under 18 in their care. *Despite the sweeping changes that are altering our values, few Americans die without taking a dip in the marriage pond. Like every George Barna book, Single Focus is grounded in rock-solid research, selected one-on-one interviews and, in this case, surveys of more than 4,000 randomly selected singles. Equally important, the information revealed is as substantive as it is statistically accurate and action oriented. Wherever your quest for understanding singles takes you, begin your journey right here!
