Reviews - What do customers think about Love Worth Finding: The Life of Adrian Rogers and His Philosophy of Preaching?

Great for young preachers.   Jan 19, 2007
The last section of this book features answers to questions that were posed to Dr. Rogers regarding preaching, pastoring and the ministry. You will find an eye opening look at how he prepared his sermons and his overall philosophy of ministry. A great tool for young preachers, or old preachers who want to go deeper.
 
What Is Included is Good, but Needs More Details and Anecdotes to Be a Really Good Biographical Look at the Man's Life!  Aug 4, 2006
LOVE WORTH FINDING: THE LIFE OF ADRIAN ROGERS & HIS PHILOSOPHY OF PREACHING by Joyce Rogers (his wife) is a pretty interesting book, but it is a little light on details. What is there is interesting, but it seems like many more details and anecdotes need to be added to be a comparable biography to other good bio books I have read.

Adrian and his wife have been a pair since the 4th grade! Adrian was a rowdy kid, tamed by the disciplines of discipleship to Christ. He played high school football, but was called to preach. He attended liberal Christian schooling and gritted his teeth to finish, since so many professors taught a doubting view of the Bible, and such. Adrian and Joyce got married, had three kids, and went from small pastoring jobs to bigger ones, until he finally got invited to Bellevue Baptist Church where he stayed and grew for 32 years. All the while, Adrian toyed with radio preaching. He made a name for himself, and Bellevue grew by leaps and bounds. He was named president of the Southern Baptist Convention three times.

The most in-depth chapter covers the Southern Baptist Convention. This is the longest chapter, and the most like other good biography books that I have read, filled with lots of details and behind the scenes information.

The rest of the chapters about the life of Adrian Rogers have some good information, but it seems like many more little scenes from his life, and others in his life, should have been included. Most chapters are pretty short. For instance, when talking about their children, there aren't enough details or funny stories about growing up. They seem to be born, have a couple of anecdotes mentioned, then they are next heard from already grown-up and with kids of their own.

The weakest chapter is a long one, containing short comments about Adrian from people who have known him. This reads like a chapter full of book cover blurbs! Lots of praise for Adrian, but little new insights. These would have fit in much better if they had all been sprinkled into the biography chapters, instead of all collected in a single chapter, perhaps.

The best chapters are a Q&A section asking Adrian questions about being a preacher. He has some interesting responses.

There is a 16 page b/w section of lots of photos.

I like listening to the late Adrian Rogers on the radio. He passed away and has been in Heaven since 2005, but his LOVE WORTH FINDING radio show continues on with replays of his many great sermons! This is similar to James Vernon McGee's radio shows, still going strong some two decades after his death!

This book is better than the more recent ADRIANISMS, which is a haphazardous collection of little sayings culled from his radio sermons and such, but they are not even sure which ones were original to Adrian, and which were borrowed or public domain sayings.

LOVE WORTH FINDING: THE LIFE OF ADRIAN ROGERS & HIS PHILOSOPHY OF PREACHING is a good way to learn a quick overview of the life story of Adrian Rogers, but I hope they go back and beef up most of the chapters, considerably, before they go into a second printing, in the future.

If you like listening to Adrian's LOVE WORTH FINDING radio shows, then you will find it interesting to learn about his life's story, in this book. You will learn the main landmarks of his life's journey, but not too many more details.
 
What a Godly Man!  Mar 21, 2006
Love Worth Finding is a tremendous ministry created by Adrian Rogers. He was my pastor (via television and radio) when I or one of my children were too sick to go to church. He was a Godly man on the same scale as Rev. Billy Graham. Morally impeccable and humble, what every man of God should be!
The book was a very interesting read because I'm fascinated with his ministry and his testimony. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good biography.
 
Love Work Finding: The Life of Adrian Rogers  Mar 11, 2006
This is an excellent book from the desk of Joyce Rogers, the wife of Adrian Rogers dealing with the integraty of her husband and pastor of Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis Tn.. A must read for any christian man, husband, and church leader.
 
Love Worth Finding  Feb 27, 2006
This book was a gift that I gave to my husband for Christmas. He raved so much about it saying that it being written with such great details accounting for his life and written by his wife that he feels everyone should read this book. Adrian Rogers was a great spiritual man. We know that he is with our Lord and Saviour.
