The more I peel away the rules and expectations and exhausting obligations, the more I find the love of Jesus. These things dont peel away easilymore like a price tag that you pick off in a million tiny pieces. But with every scrap removed there is exposed a treasure of love that was there the whole timedisguised and hidden by religion.
-- Tim Stevens
Jesus said the one thing that would set his disciples apart from others…they would be known by their love for each other. No tattoo. No uniform. No team colors or logos or code words. The one thing that would mark the followers of Jesuslove.
Consider. . .
How would I treat someone who I disagree with in a political discussion if I ran everything I said through a filter of love?
How would I treat the family member who drives me crazy if I were marked by love?
What would be different about my social media posts or comments if I really loved the people I was responding to or writing about?
How would I talk about or act toward the LGBTQ community if I was actually following in Jesus steps?
This is real life stuff.

Ron Edmondson, CEO, Leadership Network
"As I read this book, I thoughtits about time! And frankly, I couldnt put it down. I lost track of the times I said, What? or Wow! Tim is real, relatable, unfailingly honesta breath of fresh air in what is often a stale Christian publishing culture. This is about character development instead of image management! Its about time."
Ray Johnston, Senior Pastor of Bayside Church

"Any author this honest deserves to be read. Tim Stevens vulnerability had me hooked from the first page. A book this relevant and practical must be readand then read againwhich Ive just done. Anyone who shows up at church the next time I preach is going to be encouraged to buy his or her own copy. Im holding on to mine!"
-Dr. Bob Laurent, Author of Thin Places & Teaching Pastor of Granger Community church
"Tim is about to take you on a wonderful, authentic ride. Enjoy the journey; embrace the invitation to be marked by love."
Randy Frazee, Pastor and author of What Happens After You Die
"This is a one-of-a-kind read worth adding to your bucket list. Its not full of easy or safe topics, but every page grew my intellectual, emotional, and spiritual capacity. I set the book down grateful and motivated to take a second look at my own list of essentials and what to do about it."
Kem Meyer, communications advocate and author of Less Chaos. Less Noise.

"The game has changed for sharing faith. Old methods are out, and its time for a new approach. Read this book, and youll be better prepared for the new day that is dawning."
William Vanderbloemen, Founder and CEO Vanderbloemen Search Group
"Marked by Love reads like a love letter addressed to me and every person who has ever felt disappointed or hurt by institutional Christianity. With raw honesty, beautiful storytelling, and a good measure of hilarious self-deprecation, Stevens inspires us to focus less on Christianity and more on Christ himself. If youve ever sat in a church pew and thought, Somethings not quite right here, you need to read this book."
Eric Huffman Lead Pastor, The Story Houston
"The word is out. Emphasizing Jesus reminder that well be known by our love, Tim Stevens has written a narrative laden with vulnerability that will not only persuade you of loves priority but compel you to live it out."
Ricky Jenkins, Senior Pastor, Southwest Church Coachella Valley
"I laughed, felt the sting of conviction, and reflected with joyful hope while reading Marked by Love. Tim is a breath of fresh air to Christianity and a gift to everyone he encounters because he is truly marked by love."
Manda Carpenter, Writer and First Impressions Director at Soul City Church
"A good book is a curious thing. Whether it speaks to a felt need or awakens one, a good book comes alongside us like an old friend. It makes us think. It makes us feel. Marked by Love is a good book that does both. Rather than swiping through Tims new book, skimming from point to point, I sat with my old friend and read for a while. I recommend you do the same."
Dr. Mark Beeson, Founding Pastor of Granger Community Church
"Tim outlines the simplicity and complexity of being marked by love, and why it should be the hallmark of those of us who follow Jesus. Im so grateful for Tims voice and for this book."
-Carey Nieuwhof, Author and Founding Pastor of Connexus Church
