Slavoj Zizek is a Senior Researcher at the Institute for Social Sciences, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. His most recent works include Tarrying with the Negative: Kant, Hegel and the Critique of Ideology, The Plague of Fantasies, and The Ticklish Subject: A Treatise on Political Ontology. Slavoj Zizek has over the last decade become something of a cultural phenomenon, variously described as 'one of the most arresting, insightful and scandalous thinkers in recent memory', 'the Giant of Ljubljana... the best intellectual high since Anti-Oedipus'. His work is a flamboyant mix of Hegel and Hitchcock, Schelling and science fiction, Kant and Courtly Love, Stalin and Stephen King, all of which is strongly seasoned with lacanian psychoanalysis. As a consequence, it is also one of the most lucid and persuasive readings of Lacan's difficult thought.

I think I have found my new favorite book... wow. Aug 11, 2008
I have never known a whole lot about how much God loves us, and this book does a wonderful job at explaining that. It can really take you in on this journey so you really feel involved. The chapters are short and to the point, and the author always puts a real-life story in each topic to give us a better understanding.
The one chapter that really hit me was Chapter 15: When Tripping Keeps You From Falling. There have been a number of times in my life where I found myself going down a bad path, but for some reason or another something would come along to prevent me from either doing so or continuing to do so. I could never fully understand it - I felt like God was just protecting me, but then I'd have some people say that it's just the devil tricking you. After I read Wright's real-life example for this story about how a 70 year old married man was going to meet up with his girlfriend from back when he was in the navy, but was prevented from doing so because he suffered a concussion I found baffling. I felt it so much! Not that I'd been in a situation where I got hurt in order to prevent me from doing something bad, but there is always something.
Amazing book. I'd recommend it to anyone!
Fantastic Feb 1, 2007
I laughed. I cried. Some of the stories felt as if they were written just for me. I shared it with members of my congregation. How wonderful to take Scripture and relate it to today.
See how God sees you... Nov 9, 2005
I have bought at least 20 copies of this book in the past 5 years. I can never usually keep them, because I am always running into people who want a copy too. This book is in my top 3 favorite life changing books ever. If you really want to get a grasp at how God loves you in a way that isn't talked about much....this book is for you! You won't be able to put it down!
I'm not a typical reader, but this is a GREAT BOOK. Jul 25, 2000
This book was referred to me by an encouraging friend. I am a college student and my upbringing stems from a very spiritual background. As a student away from my family, my lifestyle isn't always modeled after my upbringing. I recommend this book to everyone, regardless of your background. The author uses realistic situations that help you understand the daily walk with God's love. The author is very down-to-earth, understanding, sarcastic, and captivating enough to keep me reading until the very last chapter. The chapters are short, always related to a real-life situations, and always end with a significant message. If you're looking for a book to put your walk with God into perspective, you've found it! I encourage anyone to read Lover of my Soul.
The Heart of the Gospel Jun 7, 2000
This book gets at the heart of the gospel better than all the others. Writings on God's grace which we have seen alot of - are secondary to this - the real heart of the matter. God's love -intimate, powerful, expansive and expensive, the only real power to change our lives.
