Product Description

作者: 科倫 Christine Colon and Bonnie Field

世俗傳媒和教會流傳各種有關婚姻、性愛和獨身的論述,正負面皆有。作者穿越西方流行文化、歷史、文學、神學、教會傳統(並自身常有的尷尬經歷!),發現耶穌的單身是一副鏡子,說明舊約與新約之間出現了革命性的轉變,守獨身者不是了無生氣,反倒有獨特的生命力量,亦能賜予生命。

本書既反抗世俗的性愛自由觀,亦反抗福音派教會過度高舉婚姻與「家庭價值」,付出了宏大的神學和牧養代價,誤把核心家庭視為教會的核心,誤以為教會的核心價值是建立核心家庭,讓每個信徒都獲得所謂的家庭幸福。

本書英文版獲「今日基督教雜誌2010年書籍大獎」,中文版承蒙關瑞文、楊詠嫦、謝慧兒推介。


《單身起義》勇於探討單身所牽涉的種種問題,極富時代性,深入剖析現代人的思想,客觀評估教會歷史的現象,最後從聖經神學角度出發、達致情理兼備的結論,是目前討論聖經單身觀最全面的好書,我謹推薦與單身及已婚的信徒、及關心教會的領袖。

楊詠嫦
道神學院院長及聖經科副教授


本書以正面及新鮮的角度來論述獨身, 是難得的著作。作者探索了那些隱藏於社會文化背後對獨身現象的假設, 又以個人經驗、聖經、神學、教會傳統等觀點來討論之, 為讀者帶來了具實踐神學深度的反思。

關瑞文
香港中文大學崇基學院神學院副院長及副教授


「現今的教會,女性佔多數,Singled Out 從不同的角度去探討獨身的課題,切合時宜,值得參考。要留意的是:書中一些觀點,是以美國文化的角度為出發點的;具備香港或中國文化背景的讀者在閱讀的時候,須自己作出相應的調整。」

From the Back Cover

 

Christine Colon and Bonnie Field thought that by a certain age they would each be married. But they watched that age come and go--and still no walk down the aisle. In Singled Out, they reflect on their experience and that of an increasing number of Christians. From the secular world and the evangelical church, singles are bombarded with negative images of celibacy. Here, Colon and Field explore a deeper understanding of celibacy that affirms singles' decision to be sexually pure, acknowledges their struggles, and recognizes their importance in the church community.

"This book should be required reading for every adult Christian not yet (and perhaps never to be) married. Use it as an antidote to others' expectations for your life. I love how Colon and Field have resurrected St. Paul's teaching to the church in Corinth--that marriage, family, and singleness are all callings from God, and that ultimately, following Christ trumps them all."--Jon M. Sweeney, author of Cloister Talks: Learning from My Friends the Monks

"Finally--a whole book dedicated to redeeming and reclaiming celibacy for people aged 30 and beyond! Colon and Field offer a refreshing critique of stilted messages in the media and in our churches and call us to challenge assumptions that one needs to be married to be a happy, well-adjusted contributor to society. I recommend it to anyone (married or not) wanting to take singleness and celibacy seriously."--Lisa Graham McMinn, George Fox University, author of Sexuality and Holy Longing: Embracing Intimacy in a Broken World

"Colon and Field let the issue of abstinence graduate from the youth group and move on to the sanctuary and the bedroom, the pages of church history, and the screens of our current entertainment media. I'm so grateful they acknowledge that honest, intelligent conversation about singles and sexuality requires not just three simple words--'just say no,' 'true love waits'--but more words like those found on the 256 pages they've thoughtfully penned here."--Camerin Courtney, senior editor of Today's Christian Woman and author of Table for One
