Jared Byas: How Fighting to Be Right Keeps Us From Loving Like Jesus

Love Matters More: How Fighting to Be Right Keeps Us From Loving Like Jesus
(Zondervan, 2020)

WHO: Jared Byas, co-host of the podcast The Bible for Normal People.

HE SAYS: “I have come to realize that fear about being wrong in our beliefs has crowded out the clear message of Jesus’ life and death—the unmistakable emphasis in the Bible and in thousands of years of church tradition—love matters more.

THE BIG IDEA: The truth is only true when it is lived out in love.

Through 11 chapters, the author uses stories and insights drawn from his years as a pastor, professor and podcast host to bring readers back to the heart of the Bible.

“Living a life patterned after Jesus, living a life of truth, isn’t about telling people our opinions about their choices but about becoming ‘children of your Father in heaven.’”
