The Love Revolution: Review

The Love Revolution
by Joyce Meyer

Jesus called it the Great Commandment: Love the Lord your God with all passion and love your neighbor as yourself. In her latest book, Joyce Meyer proposes that Christians do something revolutionary: practice love in everyday life.

THE LOVE REVOLUTION is a call to action: I take up COMPASSION and SURRENDER MY EXCUSES; I STAND against INJUSTICE and COMMIT to live out SIMPLE acts of God's LOVE; I REFUSE to do nothing; This is MY RESOLVE; I AM the Love Revolution.

The book is a hands-on primer for bringing to life the basic message that Christ brought. In it, Meyer examines what will happen if we each decide that we will refuse to live only for ourselves and love intentionally through action.

Meyer even addresses such issues as human trafficking, domestic violence, rape, hunger and child prostitution. As well as providing concrete actions readers can take to participate in the solutions to these worldwide crises.

" The book you are holding is a dangerous… a revolutionary’s manual. It is not just a call to action; it is a call to being…being the person who helps a friend in need…who helps a stranger in need…who practices aggressive acts of kindness".

Hello, does anything get more awesome than the above quote?!? This book will have you thinking about the world you live in, pick it up with an opened mind, and I believe you will be a changed person when you put it down! This book would be a fantastic read for any discussion group!
