Overview Chuck Colson's Classic offers a penetrating and challenging look at the cost and joy of being a Christian.
Publishers Description 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.

Stories on loving God Jul 23, 2006
I appreciate Colson's heart and where he has been in his life. This book is chock-full of stories of his life and ways we can learn to love God. There were a few chapters that seemed to bog down, but overall it's a good read and worth the time.
Wonderful. Jun 27, 2006
Inspirational writer, Chuck Colson, delivers a heartfelt and moving book about loving God. He refers to R.C. Sprouls "Holiness of God" dvd series, which is a class I'm taking at my church right now. I couldn't put the book down & read it in two days.
excellent! Feb 27, 2006
I really liked this book. It moved me at a time when I really needed to be moved.
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.
