Frank continues to challenge the church-at-large with a powerful mind, an impassioned voice, and a love for the bride of Christ. You need to get this book and wrestle with Frank through the biblical passages regarding our identity in Christ as his body and the mission our God has entrusted to us.
—Ed Stetzer, affiliate professor of research and missional ministry, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
As Viola unfolds the glorious story of God’s quest for a bride, readers will find their imaginations inspired and their lives transformed. The sheer beauty of God’s magnificent plan compels our allegiance and revolutionizes our lives. This retelling of the ‘old, old story’ is a much-needed gift to the church today.

Of all the sticks of TNT that Frank Viola has launched into a sleepy, status-quo church, this grenade has the most explosive potential to make the church unashamed of the gospel and to release God’s dynamic power for salvation.
—Leanard Sweet, E. Stanley Jones Professor of Evangelism, Drew University
Viola artfully weaves his own story into the drama of redemptive embrace, making God’s love both a deeply personal affair as well as something of an existential quest in which we all have a part to play. As such it is ‘the old, old story’ retold for a new and contemporary audience. It is a great work of narrative theology made very accessible for any reader.
—Alan Hirsch, founding director, Forge Mission Training Network International
