When I find a book that I love, I can't stop talking about it with friends or seeing real-life applications to what I read. Love Walked Among Us by Paul Miller is one of those books. I loved it because it was all about the love of Jesus, and I can't stop talking about it because it revealed so much about Christ's love to me.
Paul Miller goes through Scripture passages about Jesus and shows how Christ's love is shown through his interactions with others. Miller then gives insightful real-life applications. He shows the reader the depth of Christ's love and how we can image Christ in loving others.
Miller divides up the book by focusing on different attributes of love and how Christ exemplified those attributes. The book is divided up as follows:
Part 1: Love Shows Compassion
Part 2: Love Speaks the Truth
Part 3: Love Depends on God (COMING SOON!)
Part 4: Love is Energized by Faith (COMING SOON!)
Part 5: Love Moves Through Death Into Life (COMING SOON!)
Since this book was impactful, I decided to do a book review series for this one and focus each attribute that Miller explores, similarly to Tim Lane's review of the 7 Principles For Making Marriages Work by John Gottman. Which means, that next week we'll be looking at the section "Love Shows Compassion."
With this new review series, you can also read this book with me. If you'd like to be a part of this series and read the book as I'm blogging about it, you can purchase it here.
Join me in learning to love as Jesus loves!
P.S. I'm a big fan of Paul Miller's work as a writer. I read his book A Loving Life last summer and highly recommend it. You can read my review of it here.
Shalom! I'm Madi, a laughter-loving, movie-going, spontaneous-dancing, follower of Christ. Join me as I seek glimpses of God's grace in the ordinary and everyday.
