There may be no more powerful desire in the human heart than to be loved. And not just loved, but loved anyway. In spite of what we’ve done or left undone, in spite of the ways we’ve failed or floundered. We long for an unconditional, lavish love that we know deep down we don’t deserve.
Bestselling author Jared C. Wilson has incredible news for you: that kind of love actually exists, and it is an experience that is ours for the having. In his signature reflective, conversational, and often humorous style, Wilson unpacks 1 Corinthians 13 to show us what real love looks like. Through engaging stories and touching anecdotes, he paints a picture of an extravagant God who not only puts the desire for love into our very souls but fulfills those desires in striking, life-changing ways.
