Brief Description

Without question the word “love” sums up the essence of our Christian faith; we are commanded to love God, our neighbors, ourselves, and our enemies. Nonetheless, many Christians struggle with living by this high standard of love in a world filled with injustice, cruelty, war, and division. To love in the face of these realities seems difficult, if not impossible. Sometimes Christians are afraid to practice love for fear of ridicule or being seen as weak. Is Jesus’ ethic of love, as some people assert, unrealistic for the modern world?

William Tuck believes we cannot—must not—give way to this negative philosophy. Jesus has challenged us to move to a higher way, a way that offers us light, guidance, and hope on this difficult path. Love as a Way of Living will help readers understand the New Testament meaning of love and incorporate this love into daily living.

We love because God first loved us. It is then our responsibility to understand, practice, and live authentically the way of love.
