5 Reviews

In his magnificent classic, Chuck Colson shakes the church from its complacency with a penetrating look at the cost of being Christian. For those who have wondered whether there isn't more to Christianity than what they have known--and for those who have never considered the question--Loving God points the way to faith's cutting edge. Here is a compelling, probing look at the cost of discipleship and the meaning of the first and greatest commandment--one that will strum a deeper, truer chord within even as it strips away the trappings of shallow, cultural Christianity. "Looking for the complete volume on Christian living? This is it. And the title sums it up. If you desire life deep, rich, and meaningful, then it is simply Loving God." Joni Eareckson Tada President, Joni and Friends
