Cedarville, OhioOn February 15, Cedarville University senior Joe Knable will see his book, "Sex and the Single Guy: Winning Your Battle for Purity," released by Moody Publishers.
"The message of 'Sex and the Single Guy' is born of Scripture and driven by the real and lasting work that God has done in many single guys and girls, including me," explained Knable, a Cleveland native. "It explores why guys struggle with sexual immorality, how they can live a transformed life, and all that awaits them when they do."
"Sex and the Single Guy" has been endorsed by Christian leaders like Dr. James MacDonald, Tommy Nelson, Dr. Paul Dixon, and Dr. Bill Brown. Brown, president of Cedarville University, noted, "[Joe`s] approach is straightforward, unashamed, humorous, and, most importantly, biblical. ... Joe rocks the world of every young man`s journey through the battle of lust and sex, giving sane, practical, and not always comfortable advice."
Knable has already been on the road speaking to college and high school students about purity. He plans to continue sharing the book`s message at colleges, churches, and conferences coast-to-coast.
"I'm really way out of my league in this," the integrated language arts education major said, "but I know it has been God that has ordained every step of the process. This is His message, and He will use it for His purposes."
Knable noted that only one percent of Moody`s publications are written by first-time authors, and most of Moody`s authors are more than 40 years old. This is the first time in more than five years that Moody has published an author under age 30.
Although Knable is to begin flight training as a Second Lieutenant in the Air Force following graduation, he feels strongly that this book won`t be his last. He has already been discussing several other book ideas with Moody. "I`ve wanted to write books since I was a young boy," he said. "Wherever the Lord leads me, I want to write for the rest of my life."
