And now I will show you the most excellent way. . . .
No words, no passage, no song, no poem in all of human history has crystallized the qualities of love into simple absolutes more elegantly than 1 Corinthians 13. The Love Chapter of the Bible paints a perfect picture of love. It reveals the ideal love for which everyone yearns. But the passage is not a fantasy of what might be nice. It is a serious essay on how love can be lived, describing qualities ordinary people can cultivate to build extraordinary relationships.
Relationship experts Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott have compiled fifteen translations of 1 Corinthians 13 to inspire and teach anyone wanting to be a better lover. In the preface, the Parrotts describe love as the supreme good, a gift that lifts us outside of ourselves. They follow with meditations on very diverse translations and creative paraphrases of 1 Corinthians 13from the 20th Century New Testament translation published in 1900 to The Message, published in 1995, from J. B. Phillips (1947) to The Living Bible (1979), and from the Basic Bible (1950) to the New King James Version (1979).
This book makes a beautiful gift for engagements, weddings, Valentines Day, anniversaries, or any occasion when love is celebrated -- Publisher
From the Publisher
What is love? There are so many definitions today, from the '60s slogan of free love to the me-generation's I-love-you-but-only-when-you-do-what-I-want-you-to-do philosophy. Great poetry over the centuries and powerful literature have pondered the meaning of love. But what does God have to say about it? Look no further than the ancient letter from the apostle Paul to the Corinthians. This view of love stands above all the others. The beautiful, moving, and challenging chapter of 1 Corinthians 13 has defined real love for over 2,000 years. In Love Is, relationship experts Les and Leslie Parrott bring together different translations of this well-known chapter of the New Testament--the Love Chapter, as it has been called--to inspire and offer direction to anyone who wants to love better. Putting readers in touch with the way that love surpasses . . . , the Parrotts present 15 diverse translations, including the New International Version, The Basic Bible, the New American Standard, The Living Bible, the Jerusalem Bible, the New American Bible, The New Catholic Liturgical Bible, and The Message. Pairing meditations with the translations, they offer compelling insights into this rich treasury of God-given love. Love Is offers affirmation and encouragement for couples of in any stage of relationship--engaged, newly married, or empty-nesters. This beautifully designed devotional book is a wonderful gift for engagements, weddings, and anniversaries.
