How can we love faithfully and well, as God intended, in the face of cultural cynicism and distortion?
Not a devotional or inspirational book, this wide-ranging and wise exploration of love in Christian life will give readers greater depth and understanding of one of Jesus most challenging teachings. Sondra Wheeler draws on a wealth of historic and contemporary sources to pose provocative questions, drawing readers into new insights and considerations of what love means as a central part of Christian faith. She addresses the nature of the distortions and corruptions of love, and provides needed resources for living daily life from romances and marriages to friendships and relationships with coworkers to love as applied to strangers and enemies.
Sondra Wheeler (Rockville, MD) is Martha Ashby Carr Professor of Christian Ethics, Wesley Theological Seminary, and a respected expert and speaker.
