About this deal

So many golden nuggets in this read and I've already pursuaded the women in my life to purchase and have a read.

And then there aredays when we are tired, annoyed, and grouchy, and we feel—let'sjust say—"other" kinds of emotions for one another. For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password. J'ai découvert ce livre lors de sa sortie, quand l'auteur a publié des vidéos sur la chaine YouTube de Jefferson Bethke. To God, your identity — what makes you you — isn’t rooted in the past (who you were) or in the present (who you are), but in the future — in who you are becoming. This idea of Jesus as the model for how we are to love each other sounds docile and tame and cliché, but when we actually read about the life of Jesus, it's stunning.Seeing as I listened to the entire 5 hour book within a busy day and a half, I can't really rate this less than 5 stars! If he isn’t doing anything with his life that matters for God’s kingdom, how will you partner with him? Prior to starting Practicing the Way, he spent almost twenty years pastoring Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon, and working out apprenticeship to Jesus in the post-Christian West. He reads the Genesis 2 account as a literal, historical event that is applicable to all subsequent marriages. Overall a very good quality service from this seller and I would not hesitate to recommend this seller.

Finally-- a theology of love that will help you navigate the confusing waters of modern relationship. Any Christian who is in the season preparing for marriage would benefit from adding this book to their pre-marital reading. I feel he does disservice to himself by parroting cliché arguments and failing to engage both the science and the complexities inherent.The reason why people think it's 50% is because that statistic came from couples who were ALREADY GOING TO MARITAL COUNSELING.

All of that said, while somewhat disappointing, Loveology is much more balanced and nuanced than most other marriage books of this era, and definitely kinder to women and wives in general. As I said earlier, he sticks to an orthodox position and does talk about Jesus, but he fails to invite the reader to turn from their sin and trust in Jesus, in clarity as Scripture teaches. pastor Comer (My Name Is Hope) takes a historical and biblical view of male-female relationships, drawing from stories such as Adam and Eve and Isaac and Rebekah.Dod is when you see a woman and you instantly want to make babies with her, when you see a guy and all you can think about is what his skin would feel like up against yours. Am particularly discouraged by what sometimes comes across as an idealistic mentality and sometimes a lack of empathy for people who may have fallen short in this area (which I appreciate is hard to convey in a book). A lack of an invitation to the Gospel: Many times throughout this book I was reading and thought, “Here it comes, he’s going to present the gospel here,” and it just never came.

The gnawing questions that get me out of bed in the morning are, how do we experience life with God? Love" is a junk drawer we dump all sorts of ideas into, just because we don't have anywhere else to put them. Lastly, the book’s author notes how he and his wife were both virgins until they got married, were each other’s first experience of sex, etcetera.

I am the director and teacher of Practicing the Way, founding pastor of Bridgetown Church and New York Times bestselling author of Live No Lies. I wanted to learn moreabout the context for Jesus' life, and there's no better place to dothat than in the City of Peace. From a mid-twenties, never married, single dude, there are a lot of aspects I appreciate about this book. In general, I appreciate much of Comer’s work and theology and wouldn’t let this book discourage me from reading his more recent books.
