Description

Every day, millions of people lament the loss of civility, respect, and hope, and they wonder if it's possible to cultivate a love big enough to overthrow hate and heal our hurts. With courage, authenticity, and relevance, Jacqueline A. Bussie proclaims, "Yes! It's possible!" and urges readers to widen love's wingspan and to love as God loves--without limits or exceptions.

In Love Without Limits, Bussie imparts practical solutions for people of faith who yearn to love across division and difference in these troubled times. Through poignant personal memoir, engaging theological reflection, inspiring true stories of boundary-busting friendships, creative readings of scripture, and surprising shout-outs to some of love's unsung heroes, Bussie challenges readers to answer God's call to practice a love so deep, it subverts the social order; so radical, it scandalizes the powerful; so vast, it excludes no one.

Endorsements

Inspiring and practical, deeply engaged with scripture, and joyfully celebrating the primacy of love

"If you believe, as I do, that love is the heart of Jesus' message and should be the point of the Christian life, then you'll be surprised to see how few books there are that aim specifically to help you become a better practitioner of love. And you'll be thrilled when a book like this comes along—super well-written, really inspiring and practical, deeply engaged with scripture, and joyfully celebrating the primacy of love."

Brian D. McLaren | author of "The Great Spiritual Migration"

This is a book about love, but not just any love. It’s about cosmic love, deep-faith love, break-down-walls love.

"This is a book about love, but not just any love. It’s about cosmic love, deep-faith love, break-down-walls love. Every page pulses with that same radical love. Read it and let the contents pour into you and make you better."

Eboo Patel | author of "Acts of Faith"

I want to stock this book in every church pew where I’ve heard something contrary to the love of Christ preached

"I want to press this book into the hands of every Christian who has despaired of our faith being choked by narrow moralism, prejudice, nationalism, and all those who sought Jesus and were greeted by a door slammed in the face instead of a seat at his banquet table. I want to stock it in every church pew where I’ve heard something contrary to the love of Christ preached. Bussie’s words reminded me of how vast and expansive Christ was (is)—and that Christian love shook the earth precisely because it extends to every single person without exception, even to me. Bussie’s a gifted preacher with the voice of a friend who will grab you by the shoulders, look you in the eye, and say, no matter what your family of origin says, no matter what your church says, no matter what you say, you are beloved. Full stop."

Jessica Mesman Griffith | author of "Love and Salt", curator of the online spiritual community Sick Pilgrim

Love Without Limits is more than a book; it is a profound and witty guide to a way of life.

"Love Without Limits is more than a book; it is a profound and witty guide to a way of life—no, not just a way of life, but the way of life Jesus outlined for us in his life and teachings, if we would only pay attention. Over and over again this gracious book reminds us that "love without limits" is not only our goal, but is possible if we have the courage to attempt it and to pay, if necessary, the price. I love this book. It has become part of me."

Anthony S. Abbott | author of "The Angel Dialogues" and winner of the North Carolina Award for Literature
