Real life is long on law and short on grace - the demands never stop, the failures pile up and fear sets in. Anyone living inside the guilt, anxiety and uncertainty of daily life knows that the weight of life can get heavy. We are all in need of some relief. Sadly, Christianity is often perceived as being a vehicle for good behavior and clean living - and the judgments that result from them - rather than the only recourse for those who have failed over and over and over again. In One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World, author Tullian Tchividjian convincingly shows us that Christianity is not about good people getting better. If anything, it is good news for bad people coping with their failure to be good.
In this encouraging "manifesto," Tchividjian calls the church back to the heart of the Christian faith - grace. It's shocking and scary, unnatural and undomesticated, but it is also the only thing that can set us free and light the church - and the world - on fire again.

Praise for One Way Love:
"Tullian goes straight to the heart of what is taking the heart out of people: an addiction to performance. Performancism equates value with accomplishments. God's grace, on the other hand, equates value with God's love. It is one-way, from Him. And it is guaranteed. Tullian captures the wonder of grace and offers it to us all. I urge you to read this book!"
- Max Lucado, pastor and bestselling author
"A new book from Tullian Tchividjian is always a cause for celebration! I’m an old cynical preacher and sometimes I grow so tired - exhausted really - from trying to live up to the standards of those who manipulate and manage in the name of Jesus. This book is like a safe harbor in a ghastly storm because it’s about truth, grace and Jesus. One Way Love: Inexhaustible Grace for an Exhausted World is a refreshing drink of cold, pure water to a thirsty soul. Read it and give it to everybody you know. They will rise up and call you blessed."
- Steve Brown, President of Key Life Network, Radio Show Host and author of Three Free Sins
"In the pressure-cooker world of professional sports that I live in, where it’s tempting to locate my value in how I perform, Tullian’s book comes as a relieving breath of fresh air."
- Tony Romo, Quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys
"Tullian has a cut-and-thrust style that's completely engrossing. I was totally captured from the first sentence. His Pearl of Great Price is God's therapy for our wounds. It's a therapy of no 'buts or brakes.' Haven't you had it with buts and brakes? As if the world doesn't crowd you with enough of them to stint any of life's joys, the church lards them on 'sans merci.' Down with them, says Tullian! But not for Tullian's sake, or for any man or woman's sake, but down with them for Christ’s sake. One Way Love should be a sing-along book. It should be a Coca-Cola jingle. It's the Real Thing. And this book will teach the world to sing."
