Item description for Love Walked Among Us: Learning To Love Like Jesus by Paul E. Miller...
Overview His name is recognized the world over. Everyone knows about Jesus, but how many of us understand what he was like as a person?
Nowhere was the vitality of Jesus more visible than in his love, a love unlike and the world has ever seen. Compassionate, honest, powerful, humble, and sacrificial-Jesus was love personified, love walking among us. Such as example doesn't just happen. How did he do it? And how can we learn to love like him?
In Love Walked Among Us, Paul Miller invites us to get to know Jesus, to observe his love as it unfolds in the gospel narratives. We'll investigate such questions as: * How do you love someone when you get no love in return, only withdrawal or ingratitude? * How do you loved without being trapped or used by another person? * How do you love when you have your own problem? When do you take care of yourself?
In every way, Jesus' life exemplifies the full potential of what we were intended to be. And the better we know him, the more we will be drawn to follow his perfect example.

Reviews - What do customers think about Love Walked Among Us: Learning To Love Like Jesus?
Learning How to Love Feb 21, 2006
The Gospels tell us that when Jesus saw the crowds he had compassion on them. He touched lepers. He spoke to women. He had dinner with outcasts. He forgave his enemies. He died for them too. Paul Miller's book provides a stirring study of how Jesus loved people. This book will help those who seek practical help in learning how to love fellow sinners in the likeness of the one "who loved us and gave himself for us" (Galatians 2:20).
the next book you read could save your life Oct 24, 2005
Our church started a Bible study for young adults (18-25) about two years ago. This book was our first course of discussion and learning. We didn't have to read the book to participate in the study, but I did. The book is incredible. Paul uses excellent Scripture references that relate to situations everyone faces today. He puts Jesus as a character in our lives and interactions with other people and not only as a historical figure. Seriously, this book can and will change your life.
A Must Read Jul 11, 2002
This is an incredible book that not only reaches to the depths of the heart by capturing the amazing, incomprehensible love of Jesus, but at the same time convicts us of how short we fall in loving others. This is one of the most impactful books I've read about the reality of Jesus' love for us and how that can be applied as we desire to love others. Paul Miller's transparency and real life examples result in an ease of reading many books lack. This is a must read! Expect to be transformed!
The Heart of Compassion! Dec 26, 2001
Wow! Throughout this entire book you'll find yourself walking in other people's shoes, feeling what they feel. Understanding what true compassion really is. Knowing what real Love is! All my life I felt I had an understanding of what it meant for Jesus to bear the cross for me. But, after reading "Love Walked Among Us" it has taken on a whole new meaning for me. Understanding that He was just a man, a physical human being I was able to put myself in His shoes. I could feel the mental pain of being betrayed, abandoned, alone. This alone would be enough to give up. But then, to have to endure such physical pain is unbearable! This book will help you see the outcast at work, feel compassion for him/her and reach out with the love of Jesus.
Love Walked Among Us Nov 12, 2001
As an acquiring editor I have the privilege of reading many book proposals and manuscripts, as well as published books. As I read through this one, I found myself stopping to pray, stopping to repent, and stopping to cry. I found myself so convicted by the example Christ gave us of the godly way to love!
Paul's journey to understand how Jesus loved others is well written with a vulnerability and transparency that lets you know it's okay to be on the path of learning to know and understand God. It's an eternal path, and one that doesn't come easily. We have to set aside all of our preconceived notions about others, "crucify" the very voices of our inner being that cry out to be right, to be loved the most, not to be inconvenienced or misunderstood, and instead to love as Jesus loved.
If you want a good read and some insight into Jesus, you will want to read this book!
