Item description for Returning to Your First Love: Putting God Back in First Place (Understanding God) by Tony Evans...
Overview The Understanding God Series Putting God Back in First Place
Tony Evans echoes the Holy Spirit's words to the church at Ephesus, piercing to the very heart of today's Christians: *have we left our first love? *has our love for God and His Word grown stale? *why are we not growing as believers? *Are we willing or even capable of loving God as we should? This book takes a hard look at the life of a Christian, and how a subtle withdrawal from your relationship with Jesus will lead you to a path of tolerating sin, neglecting the Word, and living for yourself. Evans examines this problem and focuses on how you can reclaim the love you once had for God. He will challenge you to delve deep into your heart and rekindle the spark within that can grow into a torch that will effectively pierce a darkened world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Returning To Your First Love?
Exodus 20:3 Sep 25, 2003
Five stars would have been for a Mass-Market Paperback edition, which doesn't exist yet would cost less money to buy/share/distribute, and less space to carry/stow-away. Four stars because this 0802448518 edition is a Trade Paper (softcover); the Trade Cloth edition (hardcover) (ISBN: 0802479081) gets only 3 stars because the binding costs the environment more raw material and the buyer more cash. Regarding the contents, the TonyEvans.org book link gives this synopsis of the title: "Dr. Evan's challenges you to probe your heart and consider your commitment to God. Hard-hitting answers, biblical evidence, and down-to-earth illustrations cut to the heart of the topic. This book will bring you to your knees and re-ignite the flame in your heart for your Lord and Savior."
A n insightful resource Feb 23, 1998
Tony Evans book was well received by my Bible study group. We thoughly enjoyed the the analogies of "the state fair" (I'll never view heaven with out a ferris wheel :), the penelty box at a hockey game, and the airport. The application questions at the end of the chapter were great motivators too. The main prob. we had was that he did tend to run off on tangents and some of his most interesting points were not backed up by scripture so we had to take them at face value oh well still a good resourse.
