With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought I would recommend 3 of my favorite books that focus on love:
- Love Does by Bob Goff
“Love Does shares powerful stories coupled with eye-opening truths and empowers anyone who longs for a better world and a richer faith. In this book of compelling stories coupled with eye-opening truths, author Bob Goff shows you a new way to live, a way that’s drenched with the whimsy of God’s love and the spontaneity of following where he leads when he says “Go!” In this book, you learn what it looks like to be secretly incredible and advance God’s kingdom everywhere you are and wherever you’re going.”
- A Love Worth Giving by Max Lucado
“Before we can truly love another, we must receive . . . God’s love! Best-selling author Lucado takes a revealing look at 1 Corinthians 13, illustrating biblical principles with his characteristic warm and winsome stories, and reminding you not of a perfect love you are incapable of giving—but one you cannot resist.”
- Love and Respect by Emerson Eggerichs
“Discover the Single Greatest Secret to a Successful Marriage. Psychological studies affirm it, and the Bible has been saying it for ages. Cracking the communication code between husband and wife involves understanding one thing: that unconditional respect is as powerful for him as unconditional love is for her.
