Great Love is Great Fun!
on January 2, 2012
I have a friend who hates "social justice" books because they are so guilt-inducing, overwhelming and depressing. Often this is true. But not with this gem. In "Small Things with Great Love," Starbuck offers ways we can live out God's calling to love our neighbors (which includes the calling to seek justice, live mercy etc.) without laying on the guilt, without overwhelming or depressing us. In fact, I laughed out loud repeatedly through the book.
Rather than making "do-gooding" something burdensome to add to the great to-do list of life, Starbuck presents loving our neighbors as a grand adventure. And she constructs the book that it is a choose-your-own adventure sort of read. Both of which make this a satisfying, inspiring, entertaining read.
