The Practice of Love

The Practice of Love is a project that I was privileged to work on this year and developed by my friends at Civitas Press. It's a collection of essays by a community of great writers, delving into the aspects of loving God, loving ourselves, loving our neighbors and loving our enemies. The result is personal stories that examine what would happen if we actively chose to engage our culture in a deep sense of love, even when the situations are difficult. Writers from all over the country joined together to share their personal experiences that will challenge the reader to reconsider what it means to live out the practice of love in each of our lives.

Christ invited culture to engage love as a way of living each and every day. In doing so, He revealed a way of living that in essence revealed the Kingdom of God. To live this way requires courage and conviction and often means facing fears that are not easily overcome. Unconditional love requires us to be vulnerable, and often opens us up to the possibility of experiencing pain. But in the end, the practice of love invites us to discover something deeper about what it means to be human.

I encourage you to check out the links, ask questions and consider ordering your copy of The Practice of Love today. To a large degree, a book's success can depend on the number of orders placed on or before the release date, which is set for May 1, 2011. It is available for pre-order, so reserve your copy by ordering today!
