One Way Love
Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Real life is long on law and short on grace—the demands never stop, the failures pile up, and fear sets in. Life requires many things from us—a stable marriage, successful children, a certain quality of life. Anyone living inside the guilt, anxiety, and uncertainty of daily life knows that the weight of life is heavy. We are all in need of some relief. Bestselling author Tullian Tchividjian is convinced our exhausted world needs a fresh encounter with God's inexhaustible grace—His one-way love. Sadly, however, Christianity is perceived as being a vehicle for good behavior and clean living—and the judgments that result from them—rather than the only recourse for those who have failed over and over and over again. Tchividjian convincingly shows that Christianity is not about good people getting better. If anything, it is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good. In this "manifesto," Tchividjian calls the church back to the heart of the Christian faith—grace. It is time for us to abandon our play-it-safe religion, and to get drunk on grace. Two hundred-proof, unflinching grace. It’s shocking and scary, unnatural and undomesticated … but it is also the only thing that can set us free and light the church—and the world—on fire.

Clear explanation of deep truths
Tchividjian explains grace in a new manner that really spoke to me. He spends adequate time addressing the argument against the preaching of grace—that people will take the opportunity to sin freely—and clearly disproves it. Grace is something we think we know intellectually, but Tchividjian repeatedly impresses the reader with the importance of vigilantly rooting out "performancism," because it will continue to rear its head as long as we are "living in the overlap" [an expression coined by my good friend Steve Schaefer in his excellent book by that name].
