Book Review: Love by Calvin Miller

Posted: March 22, 2011 in Book Reviews, Love

The very definition of God is Love (p.47, 1John.4.7-8). This is a great book to have a small group with or just to read on a daily basis for 6 weeks. Calvin Miller does a great job of providing scripture to prove his points and also does a good job of making the reader read their Bible every day in order to understand what the Miller is saying. Miller says, “the best thing about the good news is that forgiveness of sin was immensely simplified when Jesus took upon Himself the sacrificial work of the cross” (p.31). That is Love right there; Jesus forgiving sinners of something they do not deserve. The book covers forgiveness, giving and love very well for such a small book. Miller says, “the primary evidence of love is giving” (p.7). If you do not give, how can you say you love people? Not just giving money, but time and talent can be given also. Miller encourages believers to give whatever and whenever they can. I have nothing but good things to say about this book. You should read it. Miller makes a book for every fruit of the spirit and I may try to get my hands on a couple of those to J God bless you and I pray you enjoy this book.
