Love Has a Name

Learning to Love the Different, the Difficult, and Everyone Else



Some people make it really hard to love them. But we can learn how to love better—often from those we would never expect to teach us. This hopeful guide offers a practical approach to loving like Jesus does.

Loving people is hard. Especially when it involves the difficult people in our lives and those different from us. Adam Weber knows firsthand that whether you’re new to following Jesus or you’ve been doing so for decades, loving people can be painful, uncomfortable, and downright exhausting. Now more than ever, love seems to be absent from our attitude, words, and actions. The chapters of this book record Adam’s own journey to understanding how to love, named after the people who’ve radically loved him, or that he’s tried to love well. Through these stories—some touching, some difficult, some amusing—you’ll see what real love looks like in the lives of real people. Sometimes the people we least expect.

Praise for Love Has a Name

“Loving people is hard! Even on our best days, loving those closest to us can be tough. But the stories Adam tells in Love Has a Name show us that love isn’t as complicated as we sometimes make it. Because love has a name, and that name isn’t Mark or Adam or even yours! That name is Jesus, and when we make love about him, everything else falls into place. Struggling to love? Pick up this book!”—Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker and lead pastor of National Community Church “In Love Has a Name, Adam Weber shows us how to love people even when it’s painful, tough, and draining. Adam’s writing rejuvenates my soul. This book truly ministered to my heart—my longing not just to love Jesus but to love like him. Grab this book!”—Rashawn Copeland, founder of I’m So Blessed Daily and author of Start Where You Are “Some of the most powerful moments in our lives are when someone calls us by name. It literally makes our brains fire faster. We feel special. My friend Adam Weber has wrestled this to the ground in Love Has a Name. I’ve watched Adam love people well—he’s the right guy to lead this conversation. Adam points us to the one who knows love like no other: Jesus.—Tyler Reagin, author of The Life-Giving Leader and founder of the Life-Giving Company “This book is beautifully personal and powerfully universal. With winsome insight and deep compassion, Adam reveals a God who sees and knows us—yet still unstoppably loves us.”—Katherine and Jay Wolf, survivors, advocates, and authors of Suffer Strong and Hope Heals “In Love Has a Name, Adam Weber destroys the myth that we love based on how we feel. By redefining the way love is demonstrated and acted upon, Adam has given us a field guide for daily love that we will come back to again and again.”—Carlos Whittaker, author of Enter Wild, speaker, and storyteller
