Full Product Description
Sometimes referred to as "the Asian John Stott," Ajith Fernando’s Reclaiming Loves follows his previous book Reclaiming Friendship: Relating to Each Other in a Frenzied World. In this collection of pastoral reflections on 1 Corinthians 13 and its a basic yet profound theme of love, the author relates living examples of God’s radical love lived out amid the brutal civil wars of Fernando’s native Sri Lanka.
In these cultural and ethnic divisions, the former National Director of Youth for Christ in Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka asks: “Can the biblical teaching about love actually be practiced?” His proof that the radical love of God is not only real, but it is the key to experiencing joy even in the pain and suffering of this world is, he explains, the Scriptures teaching on the true nature of love, its divine origins, and its power for those who trust in Christ.
His book offers reflections on the Bible’s consistent teaching on love and shares the radical implications of what it means to embrace life in Christ and to place love at the very centre of your existence and being.
Reclaiming Love by Ajith Fernando was published by Zondervan in April 2013 and is our 48755th best seller. The ISBN for Reclaiming Love is 9780310492788.

Fernando’s pastoral work - in the midst of the cultural and ethnic tensions of Sri Lanka - often brought up a very real and honest question: “Can the biblical teaching about love actually be practiced?” The answer he discovered is a resounding “yes.” The radical love of God is not only real, but it is the key to experiencing joy in the pain and suffering of this world.
Believers must look to the Scriptures for God’s teaching on the true nature of love, its divine origins, and its power for those who trust in Christ. This book offers reflections on the Bible’s consistent teaching on love and shares real-life experiences of learning to love in difficult situations.
Praise for the Author's book: Reclaiming Friendship
"This book has influenced my life in the last six years more than any other book, and I feel that effect is still hardly adequate an endorsement. Put simply, I know of no better advice on friendship, or on relationships in general. Fernando teaches you how to change your perceptions of people, of time, and of God. Reclaiming Friendship is a small book, and it should be on your short list of reads for the near future." - Other Retailier's Reviewer
Praise for the Author
"In every era, God chooses a few servants to stand on a pulpit and preach the Word to thousands, to comfort the disturbed and to disturb the comfortable, to open their eyes to eternal things, and to draw people to Himself." - Asiri Fernando (the author's son)
