Overview

For Love’s Sake weaves the real-life stories of two young women—Jessica J. Davis and Mary the mother of Jesus—into a supernatural adventure. Both women took big leaps of faith to journey deeper into the heart of God.

 

Jessica leaves middle-class America the day after high school graduation to travel throughout Africa ministering to the poor. She discovers how the vibrant land and amazing people reveal the upside-down nature of God’s Kingdom. Mary was called to bridge Heaven and earth by bringing life to a new movement of God into the world around her. They both experience great joy and profound sorrow.

 

For Love’s Sake opens the camouflaged “back door” of missions—living in outrageous fellowship with God—onto roads packed with heavenly encounters, miracles, and the reality of suffering in war zones.

 

With captivating transparency, For Love’s Sake is a wide-open stare into one woman’s fascinating trek with the poor, a brutal attack and threat on her life, and her honest reflections of the good, the bad, and the ugly underside of a life laid down for love.

Jessica J. Davis was disappointed with the emptiness she found in her experience with religion. She noticed the same void in the lives of many of her friends and acquaintances. "For Love's Sake" is the story Jessica's spiritual journey. She was willing to go around the world in her search to find God. Jessica relates stories of her miraculous encounter with Jesus in a most unexpected place. She met Jesus in soaring heat and the red dust Africa. She describes the change that took place in her life as she looked deeply into the eyes of Jesus. Her life was changed forever in that instant. Jessica's tells of the call of Jesus on her life to reach out to children around the world, children exploited by war, disease, and death. The story includes a description of the work of Iris Ministry in which Jessica is involved. Iris Ministry is mobilizing a supernatural justice movement worldwide. Davis' writing is dynamic. Her descriptions are unbelievably real. She writes human of poverty and "the smell of the garbage dump flooding her sinuses" and of "the stench of burning rubber" in Mexico. Her stories are soul searching, gripping. Her challenge demands response, involvement, life change. "For Love's Sake" is a book for anyone pursuing a new encounter with Jesus and for those ready to be "interrupted by heaven's touch." Davis' story is absorbing, uplifting, and poignant.
