This is a great book! It presents a view of loving God that if the church today would understand, it would be revolutionized by the Holy Spirit. The book is deep and profound, yet very easy to understand. Charles Colson is definately one of the great thinkers of our day. He weaves compelling stories with Biblical truth.
Chuck Colson is a great story teller, and he gives many gripping illustrations of what it means to love God in our everyday lives. He then ties it in with relevant Scripture passages. It's a very engaging read, and you won't be disappointed with it.
The big lesson I got from it is that loving God is not just something that we say with our lips. But it's something that we demonstrate with what we do with our time and with our lives. I was especially touched by the story of the woman who shows her love for God by donating her lunch hour every day to leading a prayer and Bible study time at a nearby prison. She has six kids at home. But she felt compelled to do something extra for Jesus each day.
The book is full of examples like this, and it turned out to be very satisfying.This is a softcover book

Best seller and winner of the Evangelical Christian Publisher's Association's Gold Medallion Book Award, Charles Colson's Loving God has reached hundreds of thousands of people. It has changed lives and challenged people around the world to examine the basic question: How can we really love God?
Colson calls all believers to a more committed relationship with the Father. With a theme of obedience to God woven throughout the book, the author uses real-life, dramatic stories what will inspire readers to a more loving relationship with the Lord.
Loving God is not a how-to-manual, however. Colson is not in the business of simple answers and easy affirmation. He is in the business of calling all believers to a better and more committed relationship with The Father of Love and Author of Life.
Colson is a storyteller, a public philosopher, a seeker of truth, a wise old grandfather and a young radical, a committed Christian in search of Go, and in many ways a prophetic voice.
This book is the 1983 edition.
This edition includes the popular Loving God Study Guide which offers helpful study material for every chapter.
This is a wonderful encouraging book that inspires you
to do more with your life. I did not complete the study
guide in the back but I'm sure it would be very helpful.
Correct ISBN - Paperback not hardcover
It's been over two decades since a ministry was born that would transform the lives of men and women the world deemed hopeless. And it's been over ten years since the ministry's founder, Chuck Colson, shook the evangelical world with one of Christian literature's most powerful and disturbing masterpieces.
Today, having fulfilled all predictions of its ascent to classic status, Loving God is, if anything, more relevant than ever. For those who have wondered whether there isn't more to Christianity than what they've known - and for those who have never considered the question - it 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 the trappings of shallow, self-centered believism.
Fabulous book - very encouraging. My favorite chapter is "The Russian Doctor".
Challenging and convicting.
