Product Description

The world doesn't offer us rest---but God does! Transforming the perception of Christianity as a vehicle for good behavior---and the judgmental feelings that result from it---into a way for those who have failed to discover the love of Christ, Tchividjian calls for believers to abandon our play-it-safe religion and embrace the power of God's unflinching grace. 224 pages, softcover from Cook.

Publisher's Description

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.

Author Bio

Tullian Tchividjian is the pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, a visiting professor of theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, and a grandson of Billy and Ruth Graham. The author of numerous books, including Jesus + Nothing = Everything and Glorious Ruin, Tchividjian speaks at conferences around the world. He and his wife, Kim, have three children.

Endorsements

"Tullian goes straight to the heart of what is taking the heart out of people: an addiction to performance. Performancism equates value with accomplishments. God's grace, on the other hand, equates value with God's love. It is one-way, from Him. And it is guaranteed. Tullian captures the wonder of grace and offers it to us all. I urge you to read this book!" - Max Lucado, pastor and bestselling author

"A new book from Tullian Tchividjian is always a cause for celebration! I'm an old cynical preacher and sometimes I grow so tired - exhausted really - from trying to live up to the standards of those who manipulate and manage in the name of Jesus. This book is like a safe harbor in a ghastly storm because it's about truth, grace and Jesus. One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World is a refreshing drink of cold, pure water to a thirsty soul. Read it and give it to everybody you know. They will rise up and call you blessed." - Steve Brown, President of Key Life Network, Radio Show Host, and author of Three Free Sins

"In the pressure-cooker world of professional sports that I live in, where it's tempting to locate my value in how I perform, Tullian's book comes as a relieving breath of fresh air." - Tony Romo, Quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys

"Tullian has a cut-and-thrust style that's completely engrossing. I was totally captured from the first sentence. His Pearl of Great Price is God's therapy for our wounds. It's a therapy of no "buts or brakes." Haven't you had it with buts and brakes? As if the world doesn't crowd you with enough of them to stint any of life's joys, the church lards them on "sans merci." Down with them, says Tullian! But not for Tullian's sake, or for any man or woman's sake, but down with them for Christ's sake. One Way Love should be a sing-along book. It should be a Coca-Cola jingle. It's the Real Thing. And this book will teach the world to sing." - Dr. Paul F.M. Zahl, author of Grace in Practice

"I have been greatly encouraged by the emergence of a new generation of committed and articulate Christian leaders-and my grandson Tullian Tchividjian is certainly in the forefront of this development. His deep understanding of the Gospel and his unique ability to communicate its timeless truths with compassion and insight have already had a profound impact on countless men and women. May God use this book to expand your understanding of what Jesus Christ has already done for you." - Billy Graham

"One Way Love is incredible news for flawed, tired, and imperfect people, and wouldn't you know it, that's every last one of us." - Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker

"My friend Tullian is a man on fire. He has one thing to say: Jesus came to set you free. This book will make you laugh and cry. But most importantly, it wonderfully points you to the only man and message that can lighten your load and bring you the rest you've been searching for your whole life." - Rick Warren, #1 New York Times best-selling author, The Purpose Driven Life; Pastor, Saddleback Church

I could not stop reading this book. I could not stop thinking about this book. I could not stop returning to this book. I could not stop mouthing yes, yes, yes over every page. Tullian write's with profound insight, humbling transparency, Biblical fidelity and one surgically sharp pen - that cuts away the infected areas and gratefully brings healing through the Word of Christ. Do not pass Go until you have read this book. It's like getting your life on a one-way street to everything you ever hoped for." - Ann Voskamp, author of the New York Times bestseller, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are

It's possible that the Church's inability to grasp the concept of God's grace has kept more people away from Jesus than anything else. What a tragedy! Will we ever understand something so radical - and even offensive? And yet we must. One-Way Love by Tullian Tchividjian would be a perfect place to start." - Eric Metaxas, New York Times Best-selling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery.

Editorial Reviews

I have been greatly encouraged by the emergence of a new generation of committed and articulate Christian leaders—and my grandson Tullian Tchividjian is certainly in the forefront of this development. His deep understanding of the gospel and his unique ability to communicate its timeless truths with compassion and insight have already had a profound impact on countless men and women. May God use this book to expand your understanding of what Jesus Christ has already done for you.

Haven't you had it with buts and brakes? As if the world doesn't crowd you with enough of them to stint any of life's joys, the church lards them on 'sans merci.' Down with them, says Tullian! But not for Tullian's sake, or for any man or woman's sake, but down with them for Christ's sake. One Way Love should be a sing-along book. It should be a Coca-Cola jingle. It's the Real Thing. And this book will teach the world to sing.

In the pressure-cooker world of professional sports that I live in, where it's tempting to locate my value in how I perform, Tullian's book comes is a relieving breath of fresh air.

A new book from Tullian Tchividjian is always a cause for celebration! I'm an old cynical preacher and sometimes I grow so tired—exhausted really—from trying to live up to the standards of those who manipulate and manage in the name of Jesus.

Read it and give it to everybody you know. They will rise up and call you blessed.

Somehow we Christians keep forgetting what Christianity is all about: not being good, but being forgiven because we are not good; not our performance, but Christ's performance; not grace as a theological abstraction to argue over, but grace as the one-way, unmerited love of God. In this vivid, heart-rending book, Tullian Tchividjian recovers the magnitude of God's grace. In doing so, he also shows how this one-way love can transform all of our relationships, including in our marriages and in our parenting, and how an awareness of the grace of God can free us from the exhaustion of always having to prove ourselves.

Faith without grace is exhausting. If you're tired of trying to fix you, with you, read this book. If you're done with keeping score and hoping your next good action will cancel out your last bad action, read this book. If deep down you hope that grace is a gift for the hopeless, not a compensation for the hardworking, read this book.

    . . . dangerous, reckless, irrational, absurd, shocking, rare, and surprising.

    These are not the labels normally associated with the word grace, but Tullian Tchividjian would say that this is because our idea of grace is too tame. In One Way Love, he begins a conversation about the love of God that pulverizes the churchs embrace of performancism the mindset that equates our identity and value directly to our performance and accomplishments. Because Gods love is not tied to our behavior (or even how well we love Him in return), we are free to honor God by practicing the same kind of one way love toward the people in our lives: the sinners and the saints, spouses and bosses, in-laws and out-laws.

    This morning, as he was getting ready for work, my husband surprised me by asking, Arent you reading a book by Tullian Tchividjian? You need to read this article in World Magazine.

    Are there words to describe the way a reader feels when she discovers that an author has lost his moorings? It has never been my practice to respond to current events in my blog posts Im just not usually free or organized enough to frame anything timely, but in this case the book had been read, the review nearly written when on June 22, 2015, Tullian released the following statement to the Washington Post:

    I resigned from my position at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church today due to ongoing marital issues. As many of you know, I returned from a trip a few months back and discovered that my wife was having an affair. Heartbroken and devastated, I informed our church leadership and requested a sabbatical to focus exclusively on my marriage and family. As her affair continued, we separated. Sadly and embarrassingly, I subsequently sought comfort in a friend and developed an inappropriate relationship myself. Last week I was approached by our church leaders and they asked me about my own affair. I admitted to it and it was decided that the best course of action would be for me to resign.

    In One Way Love, Tullian is very transparent about his marriage, its rocky beginning, and their struggle to live out their Christian life together. He devotes an entire chapter to the topic of grace in everyday life. Ironically, Marvin Olasky speaks from this angle in the report from World Magazine:

    Clearly, we need Gods grace. Any list of rules we impose drops us into legalismand the Bible clearly shows us that legalism doesnt work. Sometimes, though, we drop into antinomianism, the idea that we should scoff at all rules, and that doesnt work either. When I interviewed Tchividjian four years ago, he was hard on rule-keeping, and hes right when we confuse simplicity with salvationbut some simple rules make good sense. How does that apply here? No rule prevents adultery, but one rule does helpand ironically, in regard to this tragedy, its a rule that Tchividjians grandpa, Billy Graham, made famous. The Graham rule is that he would never meet, eat, or travel with a woman alone.

    Does this obvious need for boundaries in our everyday living negate what Tullian wrote about grace?

    I dont think so at least, I dont want to think so.

    I have experienced the soul-crumpling weight of the laws demands and am grateful for the aerodynamics of grace when it provides the lift and velocity to accomplish what the law requires. As mum to four and a gram-in-training, I long for and am committed to relational grace over manipulation and the follow-the-dots predictability and control that the law promises.

    However, in Tullians own words, its a low view of the Law that produces legalism, because a low view of the Law causes us to conclude that we can do it the bar is low enough for us to jump over. A low view of the Law makes us think that the standards are attainable, the goals reachable, the demands are doable.

    And, too late, he realized that a low view of the Law would convince a man that he can scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned, (Proverbs 6:27), that he can open his heart to a woman-not-his-wife without falling into sin. I mourn over this moral train-wreck because Tullian Tchividijian has written a fine book, overflowing with truth about salvation by grace alone apart from our morbid introspection and preoccupation with performance. May we read and learn that the truth of God transcends the fidelity and the consistency of His messengers. May we hold a high view of the Law in one hand, and a high view of Gods grace in the other so that our hearts will not fall away from the open-handed love of God.

    This book will change your life if you accept what God has done for you through grace as explained in this little book. Written where you can understand the awesomeness of God's free grace ready to be received by the messed up world we're living in. It was hard to put down until you finished it, then you want to go back over and over the message of true grace as God intended it to be so you can really live in peace with everyone.

    Every "grace" writer has a definition for "grace". Tullian doesn't have a definition, he has an epic expose' of it from the depths of desperate lack to the height of unmeasurable love. Read this book.
