Widening the Wingspan of Love: Jacqueline Bussie
Our guest Dr. Jacqueline Bussie has a radical idea about how far love should go to build bridges and mend broken relationships. She talks about her journey, both the joys and the costs, with our host, David Dault.
Her new book, Love Without Limits, created some controversy when its original publisher insisted on the removal of several major portions of the book. Bussie discusses the situation in our interview.
In Love Without Limits, Bussie imparts practical solutions for people of faith who yearn to love across division and difference in these troubled times. Through poignant personal memoir, engaging theological reflection, inspiring true stories of boundary-busting friendships, creative readings of scripture, and surprising shout-outs to some of love's unsung heroes, Bussie challenges readers to answer God's call to practice a love so deep, it subverts the social order; so radical, it scandalizes the powerful; so vast, it excludes no one.

Jacqueline Bussie teaches religion, theology, and interfaith studies classes at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, where she also serves as the Director of the Forum on Faith and Life. She is the author of Outlaw Christian: Finding Authentic Faith by Breaking the Rules.
