From the Publisher
It's been over two decades since a ministry was born that would transform the lives of men and women the world deemed hopeless. And it's been over ten years since the ministry's founder, Chuck Colson, shook the evangelical world with one of Christian literature's most powerful and disturbing masterpieces.
Today, having fulfilled all predictions of its ascent to classic status, Loving God is, if anything, more relevant than ever. For those who have wondered whether there isn't more to Christianity than what they've known - and for those who have never considered the question - it points the way to faith's cutting edge. Here is a compelling, probing look at the cost of discipleship and the meaning of the first and greatest commandment - one that will strum a deeper, truer chord within even as it strips the trappings of shallow, self-centered believism.
From the Back Cover
In his magnificent classic, Chuck Colson shakes the church from its complacency with a penetrating look at the cost of being Christian. For those who have wondered whether there isn't more to Christianity than what they have known---and for those who have never considered the question---Loving God points the way to faith's cutting edge. Here is a compelling, probing look at the cost of discipleship and the meaning of the first and greatest commandment---one that will strum a deeper, truer chord within even as it strips away the trappings of shallow, cultural Christianity. 'Looking for the complete volume on Christian living? This is it. And the title sums it up. If you desire life deep, rich, and meaningful, then it is simply Loving God.' Joni Eareckson Tada President, Joni and Friends

Appealing reading for the new and serious Christian across the spectrum. I cannot recommend it highly enough, you will find it hard to put down once you start reading it.
The book is a mixture of stories with essay-type writing. Some people might find that distracting, but I thought it made the book very engaging. It's like Jesus' method of using parables followed by explanations. Besides, all of the illustrative stories are non-fiction which makes it more compelling.
This book is NOT A HOW-TO MANUAL for loving God. It does talk about some principles but don't read it expecting a to-do list. :)
It's my second favorite Christian book of ALL TIME after C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity. And I've read a LOT of books.
