Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"What difference would it make in your life if you spent the next month or so thinking about the love of God?" asks Stafford, host of a television beauty show and former star of such programs as "Matlock" and "St. Elsewhere." In 31 daily meditations, Stafford calls upon the beauty of nature as well as the sacrifice of Christ to persuade readers of God’s inexhaustible love for them. Drawing upon various writers, but especially Inklings such as C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton and Charles Williams, Stafford makes her way through the glory and the transformative power of God’s love. Her writing style is dramatic and showy, yet conversational. Readers will appreciate her patient meditation on Christian freedom, and her perceptive understanding of the gap that exists between knowing one’s sins are forgiven and being able to feel forgiven.

Nancy Stafford has a beautiful way of describing God's love.
KDKELL7
We try to comfort one another by reassuring them of God's love and often fail because we've never learned how to receive it.
Ron Brackin
The Wonder of His Love is one of the most moving books I've read in a very long time.

Format: Hardcover
In The Wonder of His Love: A Journey into the Heart of God, Nancy Stafford demonstrates her Love for the Lord and her gift for writing in such a way that brings God's word to life. This book is quite extraordinary because it represnts a highly personal journey yet one which helped me learn more about my own walk with God. Each chapter begins with a scripture and deals with a different aspect of love (initiating love, resurrecting love, etc.) For me The Wonder of His Love has been like a spiritual booster shot; it has helped me come to grips with some spiritual struggles that I have been experiencing for some time. I am extremely grateful to Nancy for this book, and I have recommended it to others who I feel have to read it. I cannot recommend the book highly enough.

Who doesn't want to unconditional love? In The Wonder of His Love is a truly beautiful book by a writer who is fast becoming one of my favorites. Nancy Stafford has managed to convey a sense of wonder about God that applies to everyone. Reading her book brought me to a place of thankfulness that God loves me, warts and all. And how many warts I have! But that's the wonder of this book. It helps me to see myself a little as God sees me and that's an incredible gift. Nancy message of unconditional love and hope is something everyone needs to read.

This book will make a wonderful gift to yourself and others who need to know God's love. Nancy is a gifted writer with a depth to her that I hope will mean more books in the future.

Format: Hardcover
The Wonder of His Love: A Journey into the Heart of GodWhen I received a copy of Nancy Stafford's first devotional, I was eager to dive into it, my expectations high after her previous Beauty by the Book. And I've no doubt that everyone who has heard her speak at their church, college, association or corporation will feel the same.

But The Wonder of His Love should be read one day at a time, rather than gulped down in a sitting or two. It is meant to be sipped and savored, rolled around on the tongue and in the heart and spirit.

Unlike the recent spate of self-help literature, the eyes of this little book are fixed upon the face of our Father. And every day, when it tears itself away, it anxiously gathers together the best images it can find so it can share with the reader what it has seen.

The original experiences, of course, belong exclusively to Nancy. The best we can hope for is an echo or reflection. But they are more than enough to urge our eyes heavenward to find a vision of our own.

That's the power of The Wonder of His Love. It makes us wonderfully jealous to know Him much much better.

In order to love, states Nancy's theme, you must be able to receive love. Or, as my old gaffer used to say, "Loved people love people."

Ours has become a dry and shallow culture. And love, over the past half century or so, has been reduced to little more than plastic and chrome. As a result, we read that "God is love" and we don't understand. We try to comfort one another by reassuring them of God's love and often fail because we've never learned how to receive it.

I cannot recommend this book more highly. One week into reading this book, I was so moved that I began to give it away to others -- and the list of intended recipients is growing. I am extremely selective when it comes to devotionals. As the mother of four young children and my running own business, my time is very precious. Something that I commit to reading on a regular basis must have immense value. Add to this that I also have a Master of Divinity degree, spent a number of years in pastoral ministry, and have reflected deeply on Scripture and spiritual matters. I can't help but to read these types of books critically; my intellect demands theological soundness and Scriptural integrity, while my heart yearns for transparency, authenticity and evidence of the author's intimacy with the Lord. From the moment I opened "The Wonder of His Love" these criteria have been met. I am truly impressed. When I first sat down with this little book and a cup of coffee, I thought, wow, it's so short, I'll finish it in no time. After two chapters, I realized that this is not a book to read from cover to cover in one or even a few sittings. So much depth is packed into each short section that this book must be savored one precious, rich chapter at a time -- and I am always eager to come back for more. Yet, even though it has depth, this book is easy to read. The author manages to convey profound truths with simplicity, elegance and beauty. It is rare to find a book that says this much so powerfully, while saying it succinctly and without drowning out the "still, small voice." This is truly a work of verbal art. The author gently leads the reader on an inspired journey that delivers on the what the title promises.Read more ›

I loved Nancy Stafford's first book "Beauty By the Book" and enjoyed her second even more. "The Wonder of His Love" is so many things: a devotional, a study of scripture, a prayer book, an individual's journey, a lesson in love, all in one compact little book. Ms. Stafford paints such vivid pictures of who our Lord is - and the way she weaves scripture and personal anecdotes, it allows the reader to feel such a connection to Him and a deeper understanding of His immeasurable love. Coupled with "Beauty by the Book," Stafford has written two of my favorite inspirational books.
