Book Review - Fruit of the Spirit: Love

Fruit of the Spirit: Love
by: Calvin Miller


This book is written as a 6 week study guide for groups or individuals. It would be a wonderful book for a married couple to read together. The author goes to the root of love in our lives, bringing forth the biblical concept of love through the Holy Spirit that dwells in us. I really appreciated and enjoyed the way the book was written and the spirit behind it. I enjoyed the easy read, just one short chapter a day. This book will definitely be a must to read again and to share with others.

Mr. Miller says 'Love is perhaps the most overused and misused word in our language today'.

At the end of each day's reading there are questions to help the reader apply the lessons in their own life. At the end of each week there are again questions.

Each week has a different subject it will cover. Below are the aspects of love that will be covered in this book:
The Evidence of Love Is Giving
Love Forgives
Love - The Definition of God
Love - God's Passion for His World
Love - Unconditional Longing of God
Love - The Incarnational Force of God

This book is one in a series about the Fruit of the Spirit. Mr. Miller also has written:
Joy
Peace
Patience
Kindness
Goodness
Faithfulness
Gentleness
& Self-Control


I must admit that I am a huge book lover/book worm. I have always loved reading. In the evenings while growing up I used to grab a book and climb in bed and read into the wee hours of the morning. I really enjoyed it - and yes my mom knew. : ) I especially enjoyed Christian Missionary Biographies & Autobiographies, Historical Fiction, Character building books (especially ones written by Horatio Alger, Jr. Written for boys but great for girls too.)


Disclosure: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This sounds like a good book. We are currently reviewing "Love and Respect," which we got from Booksneeze. Love that book. We'd read it before (checked it out from the library in K.C.), but it's so nice to be able to own it--and for free! :)
