Editorial Reviews


Becoming Love' is an important and timely book. It is truly about following Jesus and being Christ-like in this world at a time when the world desperately needs the Christian message of love. Michael recognizes that this is no easy task, but it is the crucial one that Jesus proclaims when asking us to follow Him. It is manna and music for the soul because of the insights about the process of becoming love, becoming Jesus in the world that derive from Michael's own journey. - Dr. Rob Hinings,  Alberta, Canada
Through stories from his own experience and reflection on many sources of spiritual wisdom, Michael Rose has written a powerful reminder that Christianity, at its best, is really about love. His message rings true. In these pages there is both inspiration and challenge to present a better form of faith community to the world. There is also a good deal of discernment about what this might look like.  - Dr. Peter Fitch, Dean of Ministry Studies, St. Stephen's University
Not since The Ragamuffin Gospel have I been so encouraged and felt so at home in the love of God.  - Rob Berkman. Alberta, Canada
Michael has a gift for clearly and poignantly getting to the heart of what really matters, in an easily reachable and readable style. Popular evangelicalism is full of distracting noises, fads, distractions, and shallow voices that are not worth listening to. Michael's heart and words that come through this effort are worth being heard, believed, and implemented. - Dr. Steve Crosby, Texas, USA
Reading This book was like enjoying a deep massage and a tall, cold glass of water after eight hours of hiking through a barren desert on a hot day. Some authors come from the heart; others lean heavily on research while still others write from personal experience. Becoming love embraces all three sources, but it's the nuggets of wisdom forged in the fires Rose has walked through on his quest for spiritualreality that lend depth and authority to what he articulates so well in these pages.  ~ David Fredrickson, Oklahoma, USA
In an increasingly fragmented, chaotic world, Becoming Love contains a powerfully timely message. Wise, well-balanced and rich with profound perception and sage understanding. The depth of thought, insight and wisdom infused into the prophetic clarion call to the Love Paradigm makes this a book for such a time as this. - ROBERT 'MAC' MACKENZIE,  Calgary, Alberta
Michael broaches a myriad of important issues throughout the book which are all neatly wrapped up, tied up and topped off with a bow called Love. His ability to weave personal stories into the packaging is also extremely attractive and meaningful! ~ Bryon Wiebold,  McKinny, Texas

About the Author

edit biographydelete
Michael is passionate about helping folks connect with the God-who-loves in healthy, thoughtful and life-giving ways; helping them to experience this love in personally transforming ways.

A thoughtful mystic, an accidental activist, and soul friend to many, Michael helps people connect to life in deeper ways, by helping them towards deeper living; to discover purpose, create meaning, and recognize and respond to the sacred in all of life.  

Michael holds a Master's Degree in Ministry from St. Stephen's University and has authored "Becoming Love: Avoiding Common Forms of Christian Insanity" along with hundreds of faith-inspired articles, some of which have been published and referenced by various blogs, leadership, and spiritual care websites. Michael is encouraging and equipping communities to be more responsive and embrace a divine love-centered, community valuing model that fosters deeper relationships with God, family, and others through healthy faith in real life. His experience in social service ministry ranges from developing a drop-in centre for youth and adults, working with people with addictions, to outreach activities to the financially challenged, young people at risk and the over-churched (spiritually abused).
