1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By K. A. Connelly on December 14, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is a must read for all of us in the Christian faith.

Two excellent items standout that I refer to all the time:

A. The Holiness of the word 'And': Mike talks about how we've become unbalanced because we have left out a joining word called 'And'. Some of us would like to fill our Churches and personal lives with "love" but are lives are still hollow and without meaning. Why? Mike illustrates very effectively that the other part of love, joined by the word 'And' in God's Word are 'love and faithfulness', 'love and truth' or 'love and obedience'. When we get the word 'And' in the right spot we keep our love in balance by also keeping the expectations that love will show itself in a correct way. Mike uses the excellent analogy of Solomon not cutting the baby in half - in an effort to preserve real love - when he was in front of the two prostitutes seeking a correct judgement. In the same analogy the unbalanced woman wanted to cut the child in half - a reflection of those who want 'love' today without any accountability. Truth is seldom found alone but usually has 2 parts. Understanding this, like Solomon, brings life and healthy correction to our lives.
B. "I before E - except after C": Mike uses this rule that we learned back in grade school to artfully illustrate how the exceptions today in society are trying to take the place of the rules. He rights the ship by reminding us to keep the known rules that work and call the exceptions as they are.

I know Mike struggled with the forgiveness issue and I didn't agree with that chapter totally [forgiveness writings that are balanced and carefully thought out are RARE] but this is an excellent work and I highly recommend it.
