Develop nurturing friendships that lead to authentic community with this insightful look at the "one another" passages in Scripture.
"We all long for friends who understand us, who are there for us, and who are honest enough to correct us when we veer off course. The Jacobsens provide a contagious vision of such authentic relationships and point the way to creating that kind of true community." --Marshall Shelley, editor, Leadership Journal"This mobile, lost of neighborhood, impersonal society of ours spills over into the church and robs us of one of our very greatest strengths. Wayne and Clay Jacobsen, in a 'dare-you-to-put-me-down-or-ignore-me' recapture this waning art of relationships and fellowship with careful biblical theology written with captivating simplicity and personal illustrations/stories that make the applications obvious. This book rises to the level of 'classic' in the same heart-lifting way of his earlier book, 'He Loves me...'. This book should never go out of print. Its usefulness stretches across all levels of Christian life and draws, not pushes, us to be real and loving people just as Jesus urged us. I admire his courage and the firmness of foundation in the book." --Gayle D. Erwin, Servant Quarters"Wayne and Clay Jacobsen are dear, personal friends of mine. From college days, their lives exemplify the idea of 'one another.' Their selfless concern for others has always been uppermost. In their lives and now in their writings comes a fantastic exposition of each individual teaching of 'one another.' When Christ sat with His Twelve, His teaching was finalized in the Upper Room with that concept. May the 'Principle of Twelve' be rooted and grounded in this mighty concept: one another. Those two little words will help us evangelize the rest of the world!" --Pastor Larry Stockstill
