All of us live in a network of relationships that have been affected by the fall. William Philip draws on his experience as doctor, pastor, father and husband not only to give us a diagnosis but also to show us that – through the Holy Spirit – God is working to transform and renew every aspect of our lives. He is changing our relationships and changing us through our relationships. This book is accessible, engaging and biblically grounded and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
I will be eternally grateful for Willie’s clarity of thought, concern for truth, and fatherly care for my husband and I as we navigated friendship, marriage, and the desire for children. As members of the Tron Church we benefited immeasurably from hearing Willie’s preaching on these issues. Just as much, we benefited from having a place at Willie and Rebecca’s dinner table, where we could discuss how the truth of the scriptures rubs into the grain of every day life. His teaching (and sometimes our shared tears, in the harder times) gave us a greater confidence is the Lord’s kindness and wisdom. If you don’t have that invite to dinner, this book will serve as an excellent consolation prize!
In an age of individualism with the resultant societal crises arising from family and relational breakdown, Dr Philip’s book, Aspects of Love, based on biblically inspired truths about human relationships, could not be better timed to help people navigate the swirling currents of contemporary political correctness. Those who read it will be strengthened in being light in a darkening world. I heartedly commend it.
