Jarrid Wilson is more than just a compelling writer; he is also a compelling human being. I know this because I am privileged to call this gifted, lovely young man my friend. In these pages, Jarrid gives us a window into his life, where we see him being transformed by the Love about which he writes. This, of course, is what makes his message credible.

In Love Is Oxygen, Jarrid Wilson cuts through the noise of today and points us to what matters most—the extravagant and inexhaustible love of God. To know God’s love is the journey we are all created to be on. Encountering the depth and height of God’s love is a lifelong discovery that will continue throughout eternity. God’s love for you is so extravagant that it can be hard to comprehend, but it is so easily available for those willing to receive it. Jarrid so brilliantly articulates the revolutionary truth that Jesus is God’s gift of love to us and how that affects every area of our lives. Love Is Oxygen is a timely gift for those yearning to know the love of God and grow deeper in their understanding of the great mystery of his love for us. Not only will your life be changed, but as you give God’s love away, those around you will also be transformed.
Why is it the simplest tenets of the faith are the hardest to realize and live? I’m grateful for the unwavering truths Jarrid Wilson shares in Love Is Oxygen because they remind me of this settled fact: I am loved, and it is God who does the loving. Succinct, heartfelt, and full of real-life stories, Wilson’s book will empower Christ followers to live and breathe and move within the powerful grasp of God’s love.
When Jarrid says that “love is oxygen,” he means it, but beyond simple love, it’s the honesty he writes with that will encourage you the most. He puts it all on the page, and his refusal to clean up the messy parts, to polish the prose until his pride is protected, is what makes this book so good.
What I love about this book is how Jarrid lets you under the surface and reveals his real story. He not only shares his vulnerability but also speaks passionately of Jesus. We all need Jesus more than we realize. Love Is Oxygen brings us closer to him and helps us see Jesus more clearly.
Jarrid’s vulnerability and honesty will quickly capture the hearts of those who have ever struggled with depression or with simply being overwhelmed. The victory and overcoming principle of love will serve as refreshment for all.
Throughout this book, Jarrid’s brutal honesty inherently highlights the greatness of God’s love. His writing reminds me of Paul’s teachings on boasting only about our weaknesses.
In a world of divisiveness and negativity, Jarrid Wilson is convinced that your life can burst with kindness and grace. But it’s Wilson’s authenticity, not optimism, that makes this book sing. Wilson tears open his chest and drains his beating heart onto every page, sharing raw stories of what love looks like in real time. Do not read this book if you’re content inhaling the stale air of our pessimistic age—because one whiff of Love Is Oxygen will force you to love bigger, broader, and better than ever before.
Jarrid is a truth teller. This book is about real, messy struggles and the power of love when it’s let off the chain. The stories in these pages aren’t filled with steps for you to take. Instead, they point you toward a power greater than everything which is holding you back. It’s not a book about Jarrid, it’s a book about Jesus. Buckle up, you’re going to enjoy the ride.
