One Way Love
Inexhaustible Grace For An Exhausted World
by Tullian Tchividjian
"Tullian captures the wonder of grace and offers it to us all. I urge you to read this book!"
—Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author
Bestselling author Tullian Tchividjian is convinced our exhausted world needs a fresh encounter with God's inexhaustible grace—His one-way love.
"Grace is a divine vulgarity that stands caution on its head. It refuses to play it safe and lay it up. Grace is recklessly generous, uncomfortably promiscuous. It doesn't use sticks, carrots, or time cards. It doesn't keep score."
"In the pressure-cooker world of professional sports that I live in, Tullian's book comes as a relieving breath of fresh air." Read what quarterback Tony Romo and others are saying about One Way Love.

One point where I diverge with Tullian is with his idea that libertinism (license to sin) saying that it’s really legalism in another form. I don’t think this is correct.
Read One Way Love and learn to view grace as abandonment, as an ability to unbound the ties of your rights and my rights, winning and losing, legalistic rule following and hoop jumping, and instead live freely in Christ and follow the fruits that come from tasting unconditional love.
The intimacy of grace comes to us as we are, luring us toward wholeness, recognizing all the impediments that stand in the way of grace – many we have not chosen – and works within those to bring healing, transformation, and joy.
God requires nothing in exchange for salvation -- Tchividijian has written a wonderful reminder that forgiveness through Christ truly is a result of one way love.
