No Fear in Love: Loving Others the Way God Loves Us by Andy Braner

How to love fearlessly – even when we disagree.

In an age when we are as connected as we are contentious, an astounding number of religious, cultural, and political polarities do more to divide us than unite us. In fact, Christians are getting the reputation of being "against" just about everything. But is this the best way to bear witness to the love of God before an unbelieving world? Or does it simply serve to push others further and further away from the life-giving power of Jesus?

Perhaps it is time to trade condemnation for compassion.

Story-driven and biblically based, No Fear in Love challenges us to love others the way God loves us – unconditionally, brokenness and all – and to trust that God is truly in control.

I picked up Andy Braner’s No Fear in Love: Loving Others the Way God Loves Us and really enjoyed reading what it had to offer. With valuable insight, Braner addressed the important topic of loving one another. He challenges the fear Christians often have in authentically loving people with different worldviews and supports his points with a combination of compelling personal stories and biblical evidence, rooted in the truth of the gospel. Entirely beneficial for Christians in this day and age, No Fear in Love is a worthwhile read I recommend.

Thanks to Baker Book Bloggers, I received a copy of No Fear in Love and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
