In Max Lucado’s book, A Love Worth Living, we find that God loves us personally, powerfully and passionately. When we know that He fills us with His love, we can love others with the same kind of love. This book was recently given to our library and is on the shelves under the number 231.6/Luc.

Rated: A+
This is the third book I've read by Max Lucado -- all are A-rated. This one is his commentary on Paul's love letter to the Corinthians found in Chapter 13. He takes each aspect of love and makes it come alive in your heart and soul. God's love is not to be kept, but to be shared with others, always in all ways.… (more)

God loves you. Personally. Powerfully. Passionately. Others have promised and failed. But God has promised and succeeded. He loves you with an unfailing love. And His love--if you will let it--can fill you and leave you with a love worth giving. Best-selling author Max Lucado has successfully pricked the hearts and minds of readers for decades. Now, he boldly says that before we can pass love on, we must receive it ourselves--from God. Pointing out that we must "love one another," Lucado issues an impassioned plea to accept God's love in order to truly, unselfishly, wholeheartedly love another. God wants us to drink deeply of His love, soak it up, and marvel at its depth.
*I've read this book a couple of times. A wonderful reminder that you can't give out what you don't take in. Accepting God's love into ourselves allows us to love others.*

Lucado's ability to present the principles of I Corinthians 13 using parables and present day examples is a timely reminder that God is the foundation and giver of perfect love and sets the standards we should try to emulate in our own lives. While we can never achieve that pinnacle of unsullied love, our knowledge of what we've been freely given should make us more aware that from our great gift, we should reach out to others, deserving or not, because we've been the recipient of a love that knows no earthly bounds of sin or selfishness.… (more)
