The distance between knowing about love and actually exhibiting love is infinite. In wonderfully readable prose, my friend Thad Barnum helps us see what it means to know love and live the real love God intended for us when he made us. It's actually possible, and since it's also one of the most important things in our lives, I'm thrilled to recommend this book.
—Eric Metaxas, New York Times bets-selling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and 7 Men and the Secret of Their Greatness
In Real Love, author Thaddeus Barnum leads his readers through sixty engaging devotional reflections into the soul's most personal crossroads—where the Bible intersects life. In each reading crafted around 1 John, Barnum artfully connects the truth of biblical teaching, revealing and modeling the way of an authentic disciple while teaching that God is love.
For those tired of superficial love for God and neighbors, this transparently crafted book shines the light of Scripture upon a well-worn path for all disciples who would know and live real love.
