Reviews - What do customers think about LOVE THIS (Invert)?
Tangible, Practicle and Convicting Mar 28, 2007
Love This! is a phenominal read packed with useful, hands-on material that Christians of any age can use right away. It is divided into clear and concise categories that make it ideal for a week-to-week study. Braner focusses on loving groups of people I see everyday but never even consider reaching out to. Every idea is heavily backed with scripture and cannot be ignored or passed over. Again, the most admirable and exciting aspect of this work is the reader's immediate ability to use it. No student's book shelf should be without it.
To love as Christ loves Mar 25, 2007
This book gives an updated interpretation of familiar bible passages. It helps youth interpret the message and to apply it to their lives, which at times seem so far removed from biblical times. It is a fresh interpretation of the most beloved bible stories. thanks ka
Excellent Reminder of What We All Need Mar 20, 2007
Andy Braner's book is an excellent reminder of the old saying, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care!" Braner takes examples from the Bible and applies them to present day situations. He challenges the reader to think about what it means to be a Good Samaritan and to look around and see who are the modern day untouchables, the lepers and tax collectors of this century. In a compassionate way, Braner gives the reader practical applications of how to become a real DOER of the Word - to take seriously Jesus' words, "I command you to love each other in the same way that I love you." "Love This!" is an excellent reminder that for whatever reason, God has allowed Christians to be His messengers of hope and forgiveness. But how will anyone listen to the message if they are repelled by a messenger who does not know how to love?
Impossible not to Love This Mar 20, 2007
Andy Braner's book provides a concrete look into an abstract idea: Love your neighbor. This is a concept that seems to be easier in word than practice. Braner helps to rectify that. His real-life examples challenge readers to look beyond the bare minimum they can do to love the world and to really 'give ourselves' to others. He includes examples from his own life, and it is all backed up with scripture, giving the book it's legitimacy. Braner did an excellent job creating an easy-to-read book that will truly inspire your teen to step out and love people, no matter where they are, no matter the circumstances.
Highly practical, easy read! Mar 19, 2007
Did you ever consider that your faith calls you to move TOWARDS and not AWAY from that pregnant girl in school? or the guy everyone calls gay? or the homeless man begging for change as you walk by him downtown? Andy Braner challenges us to rethink the way we live our lives as Christians. He offers practical ways we can learn to move towards the homeless, homosexuals, and others we have ostracized. Pick up this book and allow God to show you simple ways you can love the unlovable. It's time to stop judging and isolating ourselves from these groups. We must follow the model of Jesus and love our neighbor as ourselves. This book will teach you how to begin that process in your own life.
