Overview

In a world full of hopelessness and despair, there is one thing that people need more than ever: love. Within the core of every human being, there is a longing to feel and to truly know what love is. Many think that love is based on subjective emotions and feelings; however, nothing could be further from the truth. The objective truth of what it really means to love goes far beyond any emotion or feeling. The truth is that we must choose to love rather than feel it. When this is achieved, the love of Christ is made clear in a profound and powerful way.

John 15:13 says, 'Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.' This simple verse carries incredible depth as author John Marcus helps readers discover the love it takes to make a complete self-sacrifice in Agape: What is it?

This convicting study provokes deeper biblical understanding of what it means to be a mature Christian and to grow with agape love. Christians will be challenged to think about what they define as 'love' as John gives insight from his own testimony to help readers to love sacrificially.

Topics covered include: overcoming with longsuffering, casting out fear, being able to cover the sins of others, and loving in truth. Learn how to apply these solid principles in everyday life. Start the adventure of growing in the love of Jesus Christ and sharing it with the world. Marriages, friendships, families, and so many more can be transformed by this love. Discover how in Agape: What is it?

Author John Marcus has grasped what it means to love with agape love after growing up in a home full of selfishness, pride, and substances abuse.
