As Hickman says, “This book is for those who haven’t been to church in years and for those who have thrown in the towel on trying to follow Jesus altogether . . . for anyone who feels tired, exhausted, skeptical, discouraged, and orphaned in their relationship with Christ.”
He suggests that being “close” isn’t enough for Jesus. Perhaps He wants to be closer than close. What if He wants to be “perfectly one” with you instead?
Hickman, a minister and scholar, bravely shares his story of moving from just a relationship with Jesus to becoming one with our Lord. Through his stories, examples, and Scripture, he guides readers back to John 13:34 where Christ commands us to love one another. Is that impossible?
With thoughtful questions and references, Hickman directs us toward that answer and reminds us “the answer might be closer than you think.”
