Join SubText Books in the store on Monday, August 20th at 7:00 PM for a reading with Jacqueline Bussie for her latest work, "Love Without Limits." Author Chris Stedman will join Bussie for a conversation.
In "Love Without Limits," Bussie imparts practical solutions for people of faith who yearn to love across division and difference in these troubled times. Through poignant personal memoir, engaging theological reflection, inspiring true stories of boundary-busting friendships, creative readings of scripture, and surprising shout-outs to some of love's unsung heroes, Bussie challenges readers to answer God's call to practice a love so deep, it subverts the social order; so radical, it scandalizes the powerful; so vast, it excludes no one.
