God's desire for us Believers are torn between a desperate thirst for intimacy with God and a just as desperate fear of that intimacy. Acclaimed spiritual director William Barry explores this paradox to help believers get past the blocks that prevent intimacy. These blocks include our anger at God, our shame at and sorrow for sin, the dark side of our sexuality, our suffering, our fear of God's face, and our fear of God's anger. Using Jesus as the way to intimacy with God, Barry then reflects on how Jesus experienced intimacy with his friends, in his ministry, and through his death and resurrection. A final section proposes the Trinity as a model of true intimacy. Written with grace and passion, With an Everlasting Love - - draws from Scripture, literature, spiritual classics and personal examples - appeals to all denominations with its strong biblical basis - is by a highly recognized and praised authority in the field
