There was once a very popular song by Foreigner that included the phrase "I want to know what love is; I want you to show me." According to Clenord A. Ferguson, author of the new Xulon Press Christian book The Truth About Love (paperback, 978-1-60647-299-6), this phrase somehow summarizes one of our most basic human desires: to know and experience love. There is no question a great guilt exists between God's love and our concept or version of it. In our pursuit of love, we prioritize our erotic passions, not realizing that intimacy cannot exist in our relationships without an understanding of God's love. In this new title, the author reconciles these conflicting viewpoints by shining the spotlight on the character of God's love and by showing us how to love each other and ourselves.
Says Ferguson, "(This book will) refocus our attention on the true way to love others and ourselves. It characterizes often neglected truths that are so essential in nurturing healthy relationships with ourselves and others. (Readers) will see the depths of God's love, understand that we are beneficiaries of His love, and reciprocate that love to others."
Apart from his academic qualifications and ministerial experience, Ferguson's life experiences are his greatest credential. A student of the school of "hard knocks," God called him from the "backside of the desert" to redirect everyone's attention from what divides us to what we all have in common: the heart language of love. Ferguson obediently accepted this duty, viewing it as a chance to impact other Christians' everyday lives, relationships, and situations directly.
