About the Book"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"--
Book SynopsisDiscover the joy of stepping out and intentionally loving the people around you. "Love has a name, and that name isn't Mark or Adam or even yours! That name is Jesus, and when we make love about him, everything else falls into place. Struggling to love? Pick up this book!"--Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church Who does Jesus love? The stranger who looks strange. The driver who cuts us off in traffic. The person online who thinks differently than we do. Loving people is hard. Especially when it involves the difficult people in our lives and those different from us. We say we love others, but really we don't. Instead of loving, we hurt, belittle, and overlook people. Which is precisely why we need to learn how to love--from Jesus and from one another. Adam Weber knows firsthand how important it is to learn to love. And he's learned incredible lessons from incredible people--some of them quite unexpected. With hope, humor, stretched comfort zones, biblical truth, and (maybe) a few tears, Love Has a Name looks at the most powerful of these stories, showing us twenty-seven people (and one school) who have taught Adam how to love like Jesus. One name at a time.
About the AuthorAdam Weber is the founder and lead pastor of Embrace, a multisite church based out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Author of Talking with God, he also hosts a podcast called The Conversation. Adam likes sitting on his front porch, singing in his car at the top of his lungs, and meeting strangers (the stranger the better). He still cheers for the Cincinnati Bengals but no longer drives a Rambler. He's married to his (patient) wife, Becky, and has four kids, Hudson, Wilson, Grayson, and Anderson. He also has seven chickens, two dogs, and three fish, but what he really wants is a sheep.
