Love Has a Name: Learning to Love the Different, the Difficult, and Everyone Else (Hardcover)
Some people make it really hard to love them. But we can learn how to love better--often from those we would never expect to teach us. This hopeful guide offers a practical approach to loving like Jesus does.
Loving people is hard. Especially when it involves the difficult people in our lives and those different from us. Adam Weber knows firsthand that whether you're new to following Jesus or you've been doing so for decades, loving people can be painful, uncomfortable, and downright exhausting. Now more than ever, love seems to be absent from our attitude, words, and actions. The chapters of this book record Adam's own journey to understanding how to love, named after the people who've radically loved him, or that he's tried to love well. Through these stories--some touching, some difficult, some amusing--you'll see what real love looks like in the lives of real people. Sometimes the people we least expect.
