We all want, and need, to love and to be loved. We are made in the image of God, who is love. Healthy loving is at the very heart of true human flourishing, but human life is full of love gone wrong – marriages break down, relationships with family members are strained, loneliness is an ever–increasing problem. This book delves into what the Bible has to say on relationships – friendship, love, marriage, sex and family – and how to guard them and keep them
Dr William J. U. Philip is currently minister of the Tron Church in Glasgow. Prior to this he worked as Director of Ministry for the Proclamation Trust for 5 years.
This is such a good book! Here is a pastor’s heart, rooted deeply in scripture, informed by careful reading of scholarship, earthed in the realities of the lives of men and women. It is wide–ranging in its scope, balanced in its judgements on uncertain matters, always warm and helpful. I commend it warmly.

Trained first as a physician and now entrusted with the care of souls, the author is uniquely placed to address matters healthy and holy. Providing both diagnosis and cure, he shows how an understanding of God’s love for us lays the foundation for loving and being loved.

This is a compassionate and courageous book that has both stretched and deepened my understanding of what God intends for our good. I cannot think of a better gift for people today who are being targeted by so many unhelpful ideas than this clear–sighted and compact book on ‘aspects of love’ which God both plans and delivers.

William Philip is one of our best Bible teachers in the UK, and this is a wonderfully helpful book. Excellent on the biblical text, but also full of warm, pastoral common sense, it will be enormous help to us all in navigating the minefields of relationships. A book to get, read, use, give away and be thankful for!
