Love Has a Name is a love letter to things that are good and true. Adam Weber delivers a bright and insightful invitation to see others and ourselves anew, naming what’s really been there all along - love. Throughout the entire reading of this book, my heart was flooded with names of people in my own life, realizing I am overwhelmingly surrounded by beauty. It left me decidedly wanting more and more to see and to celebrate it. To notice the unnoticeable and name it. It’s an open invitation to open your eyes and your heart. So much love. So much love.
New York Times bestseller, illustrator, & author of Becoming Better Grownups
In Love Has A Name, Adam Weber destroys the myth that we love based on how we feel. By redefining the way love is demonstrated and acted upon, Adam has given us the field guide for love on a daily basis that you will be coming back to again and again.
Author of Enter Wild. speaker, & storyteller
Adam not only writes well about loving others, he actually lives it out. This book will help you look at the people around you with a completely different lens. Through the lens of love. Adam reminds us that we can never be more like Jesus than when we love others well.
Author and Cofounder of OUTCRY
Jesus was a master at seeing people. It is one of his most underrated yet transformational skills. It is, in a nutshell, why so many people felt instantly loved by Jesus. Yet in our social media saturated world where we engage more with profile pictures than in-person human beings, we are rapidly losing this practice. And as result, we are losing our reputation for love. This is why Adam Weber's message--and his life--is so important right now. In these pages, Adam models Jesus' ordinary yet world-altering method of love, and we need it now more than ever.

Adam Weber is one of my best friends. He has an amazing ministry and cares for people deeply. There’s almost nothing more important in your life than learning how to love people well. There’s almost no one better to learn from, because he loves so well, than my friend Adam.

Adam’s book comes along at the perfect time. In an age of so much division, he reminds us to stop seeing crowds and start seeing faces. When we see people not as groups but as names, we are drawn together and find God meeting us there. Adam’s real-life stories with real-life names is a call for us to return to our greatest commandment — to love God and love others. May we never forget that the others all have a name.
author of Know What You’re FOR
This book is both beautifully personal and powerfully universal. With winsome insight and deep compassion, Adam reveals a God who sees us and knows us, yet still unstoppably loves us.

Loving people is hard! Even on our best days, loving those closest to us can be tough. But the stories Adam tells in Love Has a Name show us that love isn't really as complicated as we sometimes make it. Because love has a name, and that name isn't Mark, or Adam, or even you! That name is Jesus, and when we make love about him, everything else falls into place. Struggling to love others? Pick up this book!
New York Times best selling author of The Circle Maker Lead Pastor of National Community Church
It’s ironic that Love Has A Name is a collection of well-crafted stories and beautifully organized words because the thing I learned most through this book is love does not need to be expressed through words. Love is a collection of actions, embodying different people in just the right moments to remind you that you are seen, you are named, and you are loved. Love Has a Name teaches us not only of the warmth found in feeling loved but also our responsibility to love others well. Our souls...and our world need books like this.
Pastor & speaker
If you find your heart growing callous, or if the Gospel has just become a series of ideas or propositions, this book will be a tremendous challenge and help. Adam captures the love story of Jesus' life played out in modern-day relationships and it's beautiful. Thank you for this, Adam. My own heart softened. It needed to.
Bestselling Author, Podcaster and Speaker
Rarely does a book have me laughing out loud, moved to tears, and spurred to action all on the same page. Through engaging storytelling and wise biblical teaching, Love Has a Name extends an invitation to see people who are different and difficult to love as Jesus sees them: the lonely and lost who are worthy of pursuit. Additionally, each chapter gently holds up the mirror to my own need for Christ—my need for rescue by the God who loves me...and the people I am tempted to see as more difficult than I am. This brilliant book isn’t simply a guide to how to love people better. It’s an encounter with Love Himself. If you desire the same, this is the book for you. Join me in reading it over and over again.

In a time that includes so much outrage, partisan bickering, us-against-them posturing, and "canceling" people who don't fit our agendas and sensibilities, a strong refresher course in love -- what it is, what it looks like, and the Source from whom it comes -- is sorely needed. I can't think of many people who are more qualified to offer this refresher course than my friend, Adam. Adam is a sharp leader and teacher, to be sure. But even more than this, and as he so wonderfully demonstrates in the pages of Love Has a Name, he is both a thankful recipient of and enthusiastic practitioner in the love about which he writes. Every time I encounter Adam, it makes me want to go out and love someone. I trust that will be his impact on you, as well.

Sometimes we see a book and wonder what else could be said about it. Love, what a wide ranging topic? That was my thought when I opened Adam’s new book, but by the time I finished the last page, I knew I’d never gracefully give or receive love the same way. Adam Weber writes with stunningly beautiful simplicity that cuts straight to the heart in ways we didn’t know we needed. How did the pendulum swing from the tender love of childhood to the cynical callousness of aging? How do we return? We aren’t lost, Adam reminds us. Love Has A Name, Jesus. Life. Changing.
Preacher, Author of Your Mess Matters
Loving people well doesn't seem like it can change the world, until it does. In Love has a Name, Adam shows us how to do just that—it’s a book filled with everyday stories on loving others like Jesus did, one note of encouragement, neighborhood trash pickup, and bouquet of flowers at a time.
best-selling author, speaker, & executive counselor
In a time where culture pushes extreme stances on either side of many societal issues, Love Has a Name is a great reminder that not only do we need more empathy in our world, but empathy begins when we choose to sit across the table from someone who sees the world differently than us. We don’t sit across the table to argue or convince them our way is right. We sit across the table to listen to their story. When we learn to hear other perspectives, we learn to love better. When we love well, we will stay when others walk out. We will uplift when others tear down, we will empathize when other criticize. I wish every person on social media would read this book before making a another comment on someone else’s post.

This book moved on to my list of favorite books I've ever read, because it was practical. From people who vote differently than you to people who cut you off in traffic to people who gossip about you to relatives who have wounded you, this book will help you love people the way Jesus loves you.
Lead Follower, Southland Christian Church
Just when love seems lost in our world of division, fear and scepticism, Adam swoops in with a timely word: Love has a name. Practical and tenderly punchy, this book inspires us to love big, love strong and to remember that we are madly loved by Love itself. Great for personal study, small groups, and your neighbourhood bonfire.
Writer and author of Home Behind the Sun
Scripture tells us that "God is love.” Jesus incarnated that love, then called his followers to do the same. In Love Has a Name, Adam Weber’s helps us see what love looks like. A gifted story-teller, Weber deftly intertwines moving stories about the people he has known with the gospels stories of the people Jesus knew. This is an inspiring book that will encourage and challenge you.
author of, The Walk: Five Essential Practices of the Christian Life
Adam Weber has not only written a book about love, he has gotten personal and named names. That's what makes this must reading. Far from theoretical frameworks and philosophical constructs, Love Has a Name gets as down to Earth as Jesus himself. This book carries something special for our time. And it comes from a voice who knows the subject because he has lived it.
Sower-in-Chief at Seedbed
Painfully the emotional landscape of our world is fraught with division, anger and scorn. We can easily connect through technology, yet seem to be drifting apart. We retreat to our ramparts of judgement, to rain down fire on those we disagree with. In such a scenario, nothing can cut through, redeem, and restore like the Love of God. Which is not another ethereal concept or a lofty theory, but a person who’s name is Jesus. In this helpful book Adam Weber guides us with warmth and humility towards Christ, the source of all love. Read and be inspired to be a vessel of this love in the world.
Pastor and author of Reappearing Church and Strange Days
There is no greater force in this world than love. And there is no more powerful name in the universe then Jesus. Adam combines the our need for Jesus and the church’s Opportunity to love in this inspiring and accessible book. I highly recommend it!

Pastor and author of It’s Not Over
Some of the most consistently powerful moments in our lives is when someone calls us by NAME. It literally makes your brain fire faster and you feel special. How about the fact that God knows your name? So many people don’t even know that and many don’t believe that. My friend Adam Weber has wrestled this to the ground in Love Has a Name. I’ve watched Adam love people well and trust me when I say that he’s a guy you want to take advice on for this conversation. Because Adam always points you to the One who knows love like no other.
