Short, inspiring lessons and prayers based on John’s gospel

A devotional book of meditations based on specific verses or passages from the Gospel of John. It uses the highly acclaimed and popular translation, The Message, by Eugene Peterson. Consisting of short and very accessible meditations, the author Peter Wallace approaches Jesus through the eyes of the disciple whom Jesus loved. From this perspective, readers can begin to see themselves in John's place as the beloved one, and, as a result, take up the responsibilities of discipleship in a world that needs Jesus' loving touch.

"Peter Wallace takes us on a breathtaking voyage, seeking along the way the kind of love that doesn't pander to sentiment, but puts wind in our sails and sends us out into the deep sea of meaning and service."—Thomas G. Long, Candler School of Theology, Emory University

"An open-hearted book on knowing, experiencing and sharing love. Peter Wallace has thoroughly studied the Gospel of John, and he brings to us fresh words and loving insights."—Nora Gallagher, author of Changing Light

With touching examples and personal stories he interprets the sometimes abstract language of the gospel of John to help us feel and experience the love we so desire."—Edward L. Beck, author of God Underneath: Spiritual Memoirs of a Catholic Priest

"With the Beloved Disciple as his muse, and using Eugene Peterson's ear-catching translation of John's gospel, Peter Wallace reminds us that ‘the Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood.'"—Martha Sterne, author of Alive and Loose in the Ordinary

"Encounter by encounter and phrase by phrase, I was led into the presence of Jesus and his love. Living Loved is a profound meditation on scripture, accessible to anyone who hungers and thirsts for the abundant life."—Kenneth H. Carter Jr., Providence United Methodist Church

"Living Loved is a delightful book. Peter Wallace's unique talent for coining a phrase, weaving words, and giving flesh to the message of love from Jesus through stories from our contemporary life provide for an ease of reading that captures one's attention and forces the turning of page after page. This book should be on every preacher's shelf as a source of devotion and a resource for preaching."—
