Is marriage the ultimate human relationship?

Since the dawn of mankind, marriage was understood to be the only relationship that expressed the most intimate union possible—the mystery of two people becoming one. With the advent of Jesus, however, an entirely new and revolutionary paradigm for relationships came into view.

What does it mean to 'love one another' in the same way that Jesus loved?

When Jesus prayed for His disciples (and us) to be 'one' in the same way that He and His Father are one, it was the first time the dynamic of oneness was introduced outside the confines of marriage. Free to Love sets out on a journey to explore: the depths that are possible within relational oneness, how this oneness transcends every human category—including gender—and why oneness lies at the heart of Jesus' New Commandment to love one another in the same way that He has loved us. An essential read for those seeking to experience depth in Christian community.

Free to Love is a provocative and timely book that sets out on a journey to:

  • Dispute the belief that marriage is the ultimate human relationship and explore why it was created, primarily, to point beyond itself.
  • Examine the depths possible within relational oneness and how this can function in harmony, not competition, with the marital relationship.
  • Discuss why the oneness Jesus experienced relationally with others (and also prayed we would experience with one another) transcends every human category—including gender.
  • Examine why relational oneness lies at the heart of Jesus' new commandment to love one another in the same way that he has loved us.
  • Challenge traditional relational boundaries and ideas that are based on fear.
