Real life is long on law and short on grace--the demands never stop, the failures pile up, and fear sets in. Life requires many things from us--a stable marriage, successful children, a certain quality of life. Anyone living inside the guilt, anxiety, and uncertainty of daily life knows that the weight of life is heavy. We are all in need of some relief.   Bestselling author Tullian Tchividjian is convinced our exhausted world needs a fresh encounter with God's inexhaustible grace--His one-way love. Sadly, however, Christianity is 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. Tchividjian convincingly shows 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 "manifesto," Tchividjian calls the church back to the heart of the Christian faith--grace. It is time for us to abandon our play-it-safe religion, and to get drunk on grace. Two hundred-proof, unflinching 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.… (mer)

Tullian nails it in this book. Very well written and something my soul needs to hear everyday. The gospel for believers is something I very much need regularly. ( )
  KenMcLain | Jul 18, 2017 |
I have never before read a book by Tullian Tchividjian(pronounced: nobody really knows...I like to trail off as I say it and hope no one calls me on it). I have read many blogs and comments by him and heard a few interviews. I have always been interested in what he said if not thoroughly convinced to agree with him. I have been encouraged by his focus on grace and intrigued by his emphasis on Law/Gospel(a seemingly distinctly Lutheran doctrine) and his assertion of "two types of legalism" as opposed to the legalism/licentiousness contrast that has typically been presented to me. I was pleased to find all of this in "One Way Love", and much more.

Tullian presents the case that we all, Christians and non-Christians alike, are driven by performance. We live in a world of conditionality, where it is always true that "accomplishment precedes acceptance;achievement precedes approval". This leads to a life driven by perfectionism, where failure leads to hopelessness and despair. Tullian contrasts this with the biblical message of One Way Love-love that is unconditional, not based on reciprocity. This is Grace. Goodness directed towards someone not based on what they have done and will do or can do, but simply based on the goodness of the Giver. Tullian expounds on this with some personal stories and statements about God's love and grace that will prick at the fleshly heart of the reader. There will be plenty of moments of initial dissent that blissfully lead to grateful agreement and a sense of "Why have I not known that longer?!?"

Tullian spends a good deal of time dealing with the Law/Gospel disticntion and answering the charge of "antinomianism" that is often leveled against those who preach "radical grace". He borrows an argument from J. Gresham Machen about how it is really a low view of Law, not a high view, that leads to legalism. Only those with a low view of God's Law feel like they have any chance of keeping it, whereas those who know their inability to keep the Law will constantly cling to grace and throw themselves at the mercy of our just Judge.

This leads to an area where I, and many, have struggled. How does the preaching and focus on grace keep from leading someone to a disregard for holy living? Or, put differently, does focusing on grace lead to sinful living and a lack of sanctification? Tullian does a beautiful job showing how grace is, not only a motivator but, the only sustainable and acceptable motivator for good works. It was very encouraging and I will be returning to this section to, let's say, utilize some of his thinking and his presentation on grace as a motivator for holy living.

What I found in this book is what I have found in Tullian's teaching, an overwhelming focus on God and His amazing grace. I was encouraged, repeatedly, to come to the well of grace and drink freely and to share that grace with others. Tullian encouraged me to be more gracious to myself and others by being less focused on myself and others. His constant effort to shift the reader's focus to God and away from self and circumstance, frees the reader to be gracious, to find our everything in the crucified and risen Christ. One Way Love reminds the reader that the Gospel allows the believer to rest easy because the work is finished, and done better than we could ever do anyway.

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher through netgalley.com ( )

I read one way love , in exchange for honest review from FlyBy Blog Promotions.
I chose this book because I do not understand God's Grace and Mercy. The book consists of 10 chapters. In Chapter 1, Introduction, Tullian discussed Performancism, which best fits me sometimes. According to Tullian, Performancism is the mindset that equates our identity and value directly to our performance and accomplishments,(p. 20). We can let our achievements define our identity. Our money, looks, cars, and degrees can set the stage for our worth and value. When the job or car is gone, then our identity is gone.

I used to work at a manufacturing plant. One of the female employees drove a nice racing car, with all the fixes and updates. She got into a car accident and the racing car was totaled. She was more upset over the car than her life.

For me, I did not feel complete until I got my bachelor's degree, even though I rarely use it. I felt that I was letting people down because I did not finish college early in life, like you are supposed to. It took 13 years and multiple colleges to get one degree, yet it is a degree without experience, if I don't use it. There is nothing wrong with wanting to achieve the good things in life, but those things should not define us. Tullian said that people spend a lot of time building up their reputation and image but at a cost to others and ourselves (p. 20). Page 20 also says Performancism is a form of worship--we spend our lives frantically propping up our images or reputations, trying to do it all--and do it all well--often at a cost to ourselves and those we love (p. 20). Instead of focusing on the important things, we focus on the things, which can improve our image, instead of dedicating and focusing our lives on God.

The book teaches people about Grace and how to move in God's grace. Tullian says we can not play it safe anymore (p. 25). We need to be saved and bring others to Christ. This will bring a revival to the Christian faith.

Chapter 2 discusses the exhausted world. We have responsibilities. Sometimes we take on too much responsibility. More responsibilities means you have to perform in more roles. You will fail and you will succeed in life. Problems will occur. Plenty of expectations, rewards, and punishments. We get stressed and burnt out. While, grace is pure, simple, irrational, giving, generous, terrifying, and rare, in addition grace is love that seeks you out when you have nothing to give in return (p. 32).

This was a good read. This book must be read slow because it has a lot of knowledge and wisdom. It is available in print and kindle format. Have a blessed day.

Title: One Way Love (Inexhaustible Grace for the Exhausted World)
Author: Tullian Tchividjian
Pages: 240
Year: 2013
Publisher: David C Cook
In case you couldn’t tell, I am an avid reader of many different genres of books. I love fiction and nonfiction novels that spur the heart and mind, or a book that challenges me. One Way Love is filled with truth shared by an author who allows his heart and life to be transparent to readers. When an author shares truthfully what good or bad choices made in their life and what they learned, somehow that should arrest the attention of the audience.
While it is certainly true one can sit down, read each word and gain nothing from the writing, I am happy to say that for me this wasn’t the experience. I pray it isn’t yours either. Each chapter brings to the forefront behaviors or thoughts fallen human beings do or have done that can bring either blessing or bondage. If it brings bondage, the author shares how his past experiences are examples of how he was chained. He further shows how God’s one way love not only freed him, but lifted him out. What was really inviting was the way God used various people in his life to be examples.
No matter who anyone is, we all are sinners in need of God’s love, grace and forgiveness and not just once, but each and every day as we seek to repent. We can be conduits by which His Spirit leads us to be examples of His one way love. When I sat down to read the book, I had a highlighter, pencil and Bible close by and trust me I used them. Truthfully the author shares how God loves us long before we ever think to love Him. He shows how we can become trapped into thinking or acting that by performance we gain God’s attention or favor, and then shows us what we really bring to Him.
With so much uncertainty in the world today, we might get caught up trying to control our own little world right where we live, but the freedom comes when we let go. I could tell you more about what the Lord spoke to me personally as I read the book, but the fun will be to hear how He speaks to you. Let’s face it; everybody is tired of trying to meet standards, expectations or goals. We then take those into our relationship with the Lord and before we know it, we can’t even seem to find beauty in our life. So how about it, would you like to challenged, touched and lightened? Then sit down, read a chapter and mark up the book. Get your Bible, notebook and pen and then listen to the still small voice that is filled with more one way love than perhaps you remember.
My rating is 5 stars.
