Is marriage the ultimate human relationship? Since the dawn of mankind, marriage was understood to be the only relationship that expressed the most intimate union possible--the mystery of two people becoming one. With the advent of Jesus, however, an entirely new and revolutionary paradigm for relationships came into view. What does it mean to 'love one another' in the same way that Jesus loved? When Jesus prayed for His disciples (and us) to be 'one' in the same way that He and His Father are one, it was the rst time the dynamic of oneness was introduced outside the con nes of marriage. Free to Love sets out on a journey to explore: the depths that are possible within relational oneness, how this oneness transcends every human category--including gender--and why oneness lies at the heart of Jesus' New Commandment to love one another in the same way that He has loved us. An essential read for those seeking to experience depth in Christian community."
