The One Jesus Loves: Grace Is Unconditionally Given, Intimacy Must Be Relentlessly Pursued
by Robert Crosby

All of us want to feel connected as a part of the circles in which we run.

Jesus had an inner circle. As a matter of fact, He had several circles of relationships around Him that included varying degrees of intimacy. From the curious crowds, to the 5,000 in need, to the 70 who worked and served in His ministry, to the 12 who walked with Him, to the 3 who suffered and celebrated with Him, and finally, to the one who sat beside Him at the Last Supper. While many filled the outer rings of spectator and acquaintance, only a few followed all the way to the most intimate places.

In The One Jesus Loves, Bob Crosby shows readers how to deepen their personal relationship with God by considering those who walked closest to Jesus. Wherever you are in your pursuit of Christ, you can draw closer still.


“Jesus Christ calls us out of the crowds and into ever-increasing intimacy with himself. In The One Jesus Loved, Robert Crosby shows us how that call moves us through six circles of relationship. It is an excellent resource on following Jesus, and I enthusiastically recommend it.”— Dr. George O. Wood, general superintendent, The General Council of the Assemblies of God
