Book Description

29 Jan 2014
Everyone longs for love. Who could possibly be against it? Love seems uncontroversial: the modern-day equivalent of ‘motherhood and apple pie’. However, might love be far more controversial – far more disruptive – than we think? Jesus was the only human to love perfectly. His love included friend and foe and was the cause of His death.
Just Love uses the Gospel readings for Lent to explore how Jesus loved, and why this love led Him to the cross. It draws out the implications of His transforming love for our individual lives, for our life as a community and even for our economic order. Drawing on decades of inner-city ministry, the authors show that ‘Christlike love’ is more than just a compelling idea. It is a powerful reality that can enable people to live out God’s just love in the most challenging of neighborhoods. Just Love is an invitation to delve into the biblical texts and experience that reality in every context. It will make for a fascinating, challenging study during Lent, or at any time of year.

‘A book full of passion and practicality, exploring the just love that led and held Jesus to the cross.’ David Walker, Bishop of Manchester

‘Clear, powerful and authentic. A must-read book for Christians who are serious about changing lives and communities.’ Neil Jameson, Executive Director, Citizens UK

5.0 out of 5 stars Lent a time for condisdering discipleship 14 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read a lot of books over the years that focused on individual and group study in Lent. The importance of Just Love is that it can be used for personal or group study. It also focuses on life in community and discipleship with pointers to how individual Christians might serve their community and how local churches can grow a vision for the communities they serve.

Alongside the direction for action are pointers to how to take time to grow in spirituality. All in all this book is welcome reminder that faith is rooted in the call to service that is rooted in prayer and worship.
