“Each of our lives is a passage in relationships, a search for loving,” Dr. Thomas J. Gaffney believes. “We all try to figure it out on our own, drawing on our experience of living in the relationships of our lives against a backdrop of culture and world drama. If only we knew, God is with us every moment, guiding us to love like he does.” To reveal how God would have people love, Gaffney pens his new book “A Prophecy of Love: God’s Design for Loving Relationships” (published by WestBow Press).
By way of allegory, metaphor, a testimony and essay, Gaffney illuminates the essential form of God’s love to encourage and inspire readers.
To illustrate the challenges to finding one’s way to a loving way of life, Gaffney offers a testimony involving his mother Rosemary, his first wife Gretchen, and his present wife Theresa – all of whom helped him find his way. The testimony unveils God’s intention to use everything that has ever happened in our relationships to guide readers into a loving relationship with Him, and a loving way of life.
“We live in a troubled world,” Gaffney explains. “Financial insecurity, hunger, violence, greed and injustice reflect trouble in relationships on a grand scale. A proliferation of health problems and addictions, a culture of idols and entertainment, and the erosion of values and faith tell us we’re not coping very well. Something critical is missing. Nowhere are we taught how to relate in loving ways! If ever there was a time we and our society needed to learn, it is now.”
