Beschreibung

Jesus tells us that the greatest commandment is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” But how many of us know what this looks like in daily life? Does loving God mean going to church, tithing, having regular prayer times? Is it a feeling in our hearts?

A few years after Chuck Colson became a Christian, he realized that the more he learned about God’s love for him, the more he wanted to know how to love God. This book is the masterpiece Colson wrote after searching Scripture, history, and his own difficult experiences to answer his deepest question. He discovered that loving God is obeying God—rarely easy, sometimes inconvenient, often painful, and entirely satisfying. When we love God, we know the pleasure of living out our true calling.

Billy Graham considers Loving God “one of the most spiritually satisfying books I have ever read.” Joni Eareckson Tada refers to it as “the complete volume on Christian living.” With fascinating stories and engaging theological insights, Loving God has been bringing people closer to Jesus for over thirty years. In this hour of opportunity for the church and for our own spiritual lives, Loving God will inspire you to love God with your whole being. It’s what you were created to do.

Über den Autor

Chuck Colson (16 de octubre de 1931–21 de abril de 2012) fue un autor, orador y comentarista de radio popular y ampliamente conocido. Antiguo ayudante personal del Presidente Richard Nixon, fundador del ministerio internacional Prison Fellowship y fundador también del Colson Center for Christian Worldview, escribió varios libros que han moldeado el pensamiento cristiano, entre ellos Born Again, Loving God, How Now Shall We Live?, La vida buena y La fe. Su programa radial, llamado BreakPoint, presentado por Prison Fellowship Ministries, continúa saliendo diariamente al aire, con ocho millones de radioescuchas. En 1993, Colson recibió el prestigioso Premio Templeton por el Progreso en la Religión. Este premio de un millón de dólares, además de todo lo que recibe en sus conferencias y sus derechos de autor sobre sus libros, son donados a Prison Fellowship. En 2008, el Presidente George W. Bush le concedió el segundo reconocimiento en importancia para un civil estadounidense por parte del gobierno de la nación, la Medalla Presidencial del Ciudadano, por su labor humanitaria con Prison Fellowship Ministries. Se graduó de la Universidad de Brown y la Escuela de Leyes George Washington, y recibió su Doctorado en Derecho con honores. Sirvió en el Cuerpo de Marinos de los Estados Unidos, donde alcanzó el grado de Capitán.

    A marvelous book! It got me thinking about what it really means to be a Christian. Colson expounds, with the aid of strikingly illustrative stories,on key doctrines of the Christian worldview such as: the authority of the Bible, the meaning and nature of sin, the necessity of conversion,and a life of holiness. And he powerfully applies these to the conscience, thus compelling anyone who confesses the name of Christ to get up and be a Christian.

    A treatise on how we can love God. Colson devotes the first part of the book to how we develop a relationship with him and the second to showing how we can carry out that relationship in the world. Colson was fond of the referring to this as "making the invisible kingdom visible" There's nothing new here, but the examples, mostly drawn from Prison Fellowship, are great examples of creative ways to work out faith in life.

    Duplicates what he has said in oter books. Devotional reading.
