Imagine that you're going about your ordinary day- waiting in an elevator, riding a bus, standing in line- and all of a sudden this random guy comes up and taps you on the shoulder and says "Hey, did you ever think about what love really looks like?"
That's what this book is. It's Pastor Dave Willis, appearing at your side and saying "Let's just take a minute and imagine what love sounds like, how it moves, how it grows, how it feels, and most of all- how to give it away."
This book is a practical primer for those who are ready to love and care more fully for the people around them. The first seven chapters describe seven principles that govern love. Love is honest, love heals, love commits, love conquers, love is gracious, love gives and continues to give, love cannot die.
The next seven chapters zoom in on particular relationships- with family, friends, children, spouses, enemies, neighbors, and your Maker- and envision what better love would look like in those contexts.
You might laugh while reading this book, your might shake your head at the way we humans treat each other, you might be injected with fresh hope.
