Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Understanding God's love requires not a classroom lecture but a long bath.  In He Loves Me, Wayne Jacobsen fills the tub and invites us to soak in real life, the inner life of the Trinity.  'What Really Happened on the Cross' is worth reading five or six times, then sinking quietly and deeply into its life-giving water."
-Dr. Larry Crabb, author of The Papa Prayer, SoulTalk, and Shattered Dreams

"For those of us who are longing to 'live loved', I cannot recommend a better follow-up to The Shack than this book.  It is an exploration and adventure into the heart of the God we hoped was truly there, and who loves each of us in particular with an everlasting love."
-William Young, author of The Shack

"The author explores how to increase one’s confidence in God's love. He compares doubters to children "plucking daisy petals," who believe that their suffering means that God doesn’t love them. With subtle humor, Jacobsen says to "toss that daisy aside." Using seamless narratives and a rich vocal presentation, he points the way to an intimate, vibrant relationship with Christ that begins at the cross with free will and choice. His powerful narration contrasts guilt with the intimacy and affection freely offered by God. Deep faith, he says, recognizes the eternal choices of heaven or hell. Comparing life to Monopoly, he admonishes listeners to choose wisely and to use their "Get Out of Hell Free" card."

    Provides the best summary of the true Christian life, free from Religion

    I founds this book a great conclusion to his others books ("The Shack" and "So you don't want to go to church anymore?"). Mr. Jacobsen is able to communicate how much God loves us and how He has done all the work. Our job is to only trust Him and the then enjoy the life He has given us. Very refreshing. Wish the church in America would get hold of this and preach it rather than all the 'doing' that is preached.

    Life Changing, Freedom from under the law of religious practice

    This is one book that I did not want to end!! I felt it has the Truth to bring freedom for people under religious practices into just being in a love relationship with Jesus. It brings an end to the do's and dont's that some organized religions place on people.

    The work of Christ is about the love relationship He wants to have with us, nothing more nothing less. This book describes that beautifully!!

    I would highly recommend it because it is inspriting - majoring on the major of the gospel.

    Great companion to 'The Shack'

    After reading 'The Shack', I was looking for something that would help me put my new-found understanding of what relationship with God can look like into practice. This book did it. It is a biblical look at God's love for us and how it is the foundation of trust and true life-changing relationship.

    Beyond Excellent!!!

    Very encouraging book, written in an easy style. The message of God's love for us is one that we need to hear and live every day...this book will help us learn how to live in His love. A book that you will read and re-read again and again.

    Highly Recommended

    I am only half-way through this read and am already enjoying the fullness of its message. One of the things that I love most is the End of chapter "Personal Journey" section and "Group Discussion". This is a wonderful Book Club read.

    Outstanding!

    I feel that my life and relationship with God has been forever changed for the better. I have a new appreciation and understanding of what The Father did for me through Christ Jesus. I know now, more than ever, that I am love by God and, I don't have to walk in fear of His judgment anymore.Thank you so much for writing this book.

    He Loves Me! What a concept!!

    A friend recommended this book after we had several discussions about another Christian book. This book is very inspirational. Accepting Gods love, is an important concept for all of us. However, you will have to decide for yourself, whether Mr. Jacobsen makes the case for his interpretation of that love.

    Love this book!!!

    This is a "must have" book. If we could really grasp the depth of the Father's love for us we would definitely live our lives much differently. Free from guilt and shame. We would love others better. I can't say enough about this book. It is changing my view of "doing" and I am beginning to just "be" who he created me to be. I am living LOVED!!!
