Do You Love Me?

By: Michael H. Crosby
  • $24.00


Throughout the Gospel of John Jesus poses a series of questions: "What are you looking for?" "Do you want to be healed?" "Why do I speak to you at all?" as well as the most poignant, addressed to Peter, "Do you love me?" Michael Crosby's reflections on these questions take us into the heart of John's gospel. He highlights an important theme: the tension between a model of the church that gives emphasis to the Petrine principle of apostolic authority and a model of the church--characterized by the Beloved Disciple--that gives greater emphasis to loving service and discipleship. As Crosby shows, it is in balancing the roles of both Peter and the Beloved Disciple that the church best reflects the spirit of Christ.

Michael H. Crosby (1940-2017), a Capuchin Franciscan, was a tireless advocate for corporate responsibility. He travelled around the world, preaching and speaking on contemporary biblical discipleship. His many books include The Spirituality of the Beatitudes; Finding Francis, Following Christ; and The Prayer that Jesus Taught Us.
