Every now and then I read a really great book. This is one of those books: The Jesus Creed.
This book really gave me permission to love myself and to see God as a loving God. I hope it will show you what God intended from His followers in the Old Testament (but didn't get) and why Jesus came to really drive the point home… that we are to love.
Here is a quote:
Amid a sea of books on Christian spiritual formation, McKnight, professor of religious studies at North Park University in Chicago, brings us a simple, highly readable one focused on the weightiest teaching of Jesus: love God and love others as yourself.
