Overview

If you value friendship and community, Authentic Relationships will inspire you with fresh insights for meaningful interaction with others. Authors Wayne and Clay Jacobsen give practical examples of how to apply the principles of "one anothering," drawing from the rich fabric of biblical guidance and instruction.

Beginning with God's simple command to "love one another," this book shows you how to create authentic and loving relationships and communities. Authentic Relationships captures the essence of Jesus' concern and service demonstrated to his disciples and followers. It weaves a fine tapestry that will help you develop genuine friendships and reveal to others the depths of your relationship with Jesus.

In a fast-paced culture that values independence and autonomy, the principles of "one anothering" can transform your relationships and broaden your community of true friends. You'll learn new methods for opening doors to deeper friendships and meaningful interactions with strangers. If you seek to strengthen relationships with other believers, you'll learn how to be the church rather than just go to church. This book helps you avoid the pitfalls of judging others and inspires you to engage people with love, acceptance, kindness, and respect.
