A Disappointing Read... Mar 22, 2007
It's really hard to say anything negative about a book written by a physician who loves Christ and appears to be dedicated to serving Him and others.
But after reading this book, I have to say that it is in desperate need of a good copy editor. Dr. Gills tries to talk about love and contrast it to selfishness, but the copy is often unfocused and wandering and the reader is unsure where he's headed from page to page. Strangely, all the even numbered pages just have random quotes on the subject of love, that actually distract from trying to follow the flow of the chapters. Although I'm sure his intent with the book is to glorify Christ and edify the church, his readers would be much better served by skipping this book and reading something really worthwhile on the subject like The Four Loves or Sacred Marriage.
