I have to say this was not one of my favorite books to read. It was very wordy and had a lot of reference information listed in it – bible verses, definitions, etc and it was really hard for me to really sink my teeth in to it and actually receive some sort of message from the words that were written.
The book is not just for Christians – it mentions several other religions as well. It was a bit too technical for me which is unfortunate because I really was hoping to learn more about love. Perhaps I just was having a bad day when I read it, I don’t know, but it was incredibly difficult for me to get in to, though I did power through and read the whole book in hopes that something would end up catching my attention. It didn’t.
There are 12 chapters:
Fear, Faith and Love
I AM is One
Belief and Trust
Acceptance and Confidence
Gratitude and Compassion
Freedom, Stewardship, and Servanthood
Loyalty, Purity, and Justice
Rest and Determination
Love Never Fails
Have you ever wondered where love comes from, why love exists or what exactly love is? Love is an inexhaustible subject. Love is a being, not just a behavior or emotion. Absolute love exists within and overflows from God. That might sound strange, but if there is one absolute it comes from a supreme, all-encompassing force – God. If it is true that, as the apostle John said, “God is Love,” then this is absolute love. Absolute Love begins a discussion around what love is, or more exactly, who love is. This is not for Christians only. It can stimulate discussion between followers of Islam, Judaism or any religion, and can be a starting place between those who believe in God and those who deny the existence of God.
