The Sacred Search by Gary Thomas

What is if it’s not about who you marry, but why?

Gary Thomas is a writer-in-residence at Second Baptist Church in Houston. You can follow him on Facebook. One of our members wrote to tell us about this book saying: “I wish someone had given me ‘The Sacred Search’ many years ago before I was first married.”

What if you stopped looking for a “soul mate” and started looking for a “sole mate”—someone who will live out with you the great purpose of God? What if dating isn’t about finding “the one” but making a wise choice so you can better serve the One who loves you most? What if God didn’t design relationships to make you happy but to make you holy? In The Sacred Search, Gary Thomas will transform the way you look at romantic relationships. Whether you are single, dating, or engaged, Gary’s unique perspective on dating will prepare you for a satisfying, spiritually enriching marriage even before you walk down the aisle. As Gary reminds us, a good marriage is not something you find—it’s something you make.


We would love to know what you think of this wonderful book.
