How close can we get to Jesus? How close do you
want to get?
Six circles of relationship formed around Jesus in his time on earth. In the
outermost circle, the Crowds who were curious. Next, the Five Thousand who were
needy, while the Seventy worked and served in Jesus’ ministry; then came the
Twelve who walked with Jesus, the Three who suffered and celebrated with him,
and finally the One who sat beside him at the Last Supper. Jesus’ closest
follower listened more closely than any other, and recognized the Savior when
no one else did.
Scripture promises if you
move closer to God, he will move closer to you. Wherever you are in your
pursuit of Christ, you can draw closer still. In The One Jesus Loves, you
will learn about each of the six circles, and what it takes to move further in,
closer and closer to Jesus.
Which circle are you in
today? Jesus is calling you closer.
"After reading The One
Jesus Loves, you’ll not only understand how to deepen your relationship
with God by drawing closer into His ‘circle of intimacy,’ you’ll also see how
becoming a closer follower of Christ can improve every other relationship in

“This book itself will be a gift to you. Robert Crosby has not
just studied the costly grace of Jesus; he's lived it. This grace is a pool of
fathomless depths. The deeper we go, the more healing we find.”
