"For those of us who are longing to 'live loved,' I cannot recommend a better follow-up to The Shack than this book. It is an exploration and adventure into the heart of the God we hoped was truly there, and who loves each of us in particular with an everlasting love."―Wm. Paul Young, Author of The Shack

I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated how he conveys how much God cares about man.
I loved the book so much that our book club at church has chosen "He Loves Me!: Learning to Live in the Father's Affection" as our May book of the month. Can't wait for the meeting to discus it.
Jacobsen's book, He Loves Me, is a great reminder of this truth. Nothing we have done can ever earn God's favor. Neither our obedience nor disobedience changes the way God feels about us. Instead, it is God's decision to deem us clean and restored as His children. What proof is there that God has cleaned us and loved us so? The Great Fire of God - Holy Spirit - lives in our own fleshly bodies. Indeed, God has made us clean; we have done nothing to deserve it, nor can we ever repay Him, nor does He want is to try. He simply wants us to reach up and accept His offer to hold us.
Jacobsen presents this truth from many different perspectives. He has structured his book with many short chapters followed by deep discussion questions. The discussion questions are suitable for personal reflection or sharing with a small intimate group. This structure helps Jacobsen to focus on a single concept at once using many illustrations and stories to enforce his point. This approach helps the reader dig deep through his own reservations. Many times Jacobsen is writing to perform surgery on the reader's heart. Through many false teachings and lifelong hurts, most people have built up a think callous around his or her heart. Nonetheless, Jacobsen proceeds in a way to penetrate this callous and inject the message of God's love where it can break down these scars.
Even those who are very confident in their appreciation of God's love can benefit from the many perspectives and reminders given by Jacobsen. This is not a book to simply read and then shelve to gather dust. This book should be kept around in the open where someone might pick it up and read a short chapter. It all boils down to Jacobsen's title: "Who is God? Well, first and most important: He loves me."
But the content of the book was helpful. Jacobson does a masterful job of showing how God is not angry with us, but loves us, no matter what, simply because of who we are. In a time when most Christians struggle with legalism and understanding grace, a book like this will help them come to a knowledge of how much God loves them.
