Item Description...
Overview
Turning our culture's Sex in the City worldview completely upside down, Revelations of a Single Woman celebrates God's enticing, life-giving promises, even when life takes you down a path you didn't plan for. Connally Gilliam explores what it means to live in a world for which her mother never could have prepared her. Through this collection of thoughtful, honest, and humorous memoirs, the author delves into what it really means to be "the remainder" in a world that caters to couples, and what it means to be the one who lives out moral values that her peers think died in the sixties. As readers walk with Connally through each humorous and poignant experience, they will discover that God doesn't promise happiness somewhere in the future, but abundant life in the here and now.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great for anyone who knows a single woman  Jan 20, 2007
Just recently married at 35, I could relate very well to this book, and I wish it was out there for me 5 years ago. Most of all I wish I could have handed it to my mother to read when she was not understanding my struggle with singleness and feeling left out in a couples world. I HIGHLY recommend it for anyone struggling with their own singleness or someone close to a single person who just does not "get it".
 
Single and Loving It!  Nov 9, 2006
It seems like every book written on the topic of life as a single woman focuses on what you do not have when you are single. Not this book. "Revelations" provides a refreshing, honest and, at times, hilarious perspective of the joys and trials of being a single woman filled with the desire to follow God. Instead of looking at what is lacking in her life, Connally Gilliam celebrates the unexpected blessings of being single. I was encouraged and inspired by her story and frequently find myself recommending this book to my friends.
 
I'll recommend this book to all of my single women friends  Nov 2, 2006
I found the book to be very honest, almost painfully so. It was challenging. I found the chapter on friendships between women to be the most challenging. I never thought of things in that way. On the whole I found reading it to be a very freeing experience. Freeing in the sense that somebody finally understood my "trials and tribulations" as an unintentionally single woman over 30. Having someone articulate those feelings and validate them with interesting statistics, musings from friends and life observations gives me hope. I am not a freak for being 32 and unmarried. I am simply unmarried, and should not feel guilty for having a full and interesting life that doesn't contain a husband. I would welcome a husband of course, but I won't die because I don't have one. Thanks Connally.
 
The only book on this topic that I bother to recommend  Jul 31, 2006
Connally Gilliam really did single women (and married people who want to support and understand them) a favor when she wrote this book. It covers the issues we talk about with our friends every day, delves into emotional issues that I never thought about but found I'd experienced, and as she put it in a recent magazine interview, "if you can't get a visa out of the war zone, this is how you can continue to live fully in it." Her theological basis for dealing with the challenges of prolonged singleness was exactly what I'd come to myself - none of that "you don't have a husband yet because you're not satisfied with God enough" kind of crud. The pivotal point in the book is her conversation with the founding president of Regent College, Vancouver. When I read that part, I was in tears because his loving observations of the single situation today were dead-on. Painful, but at least the pain is recognized and validated. I choose to have more hope for eventual marriage than Dr. Houston's comments perhaps encourage at first brush, and so does the author, per an email exchange I had with her.

I highly recommend this book - I bought two copies and I loan one out on a regular basis! Other books on single women's issues are really a matter of taste or whatever, but I have no qualms about recommending this book to either single or married people.
 
Contributes nothing to the debate  May 27, 2006
Boy was I dissapointed by this book. This book is nothing but a series of short pointless stories. It contributes nothing to the debate on a very important issue.
