In his magnificent classic, Chuck Colson shakes the church from its complacency with a penetrating look at the cost of being Christian. For those who have wondered whether there isn’t more to Christianity than what they have known—and for those who have never considered the question—Loving God points the way to faith’s cutting edge. Here is a compelling, probing look at the cost of discipleship and the meaning of the first and greatest commandment—one that will strum a deeper, truer chord within even as it strips away the trappings of shallow, cultural Christianity. “Looking for the complete volume on Christian living? This is it. And the title sums it up. If you desire life deep, rich, and meaningful, then it is simply Loving God.” Joni Eareckson Tada President, Joni and Friends
A from baptism, “Loving God” by Chuck Colson was a delight to read. I was particularly struck by this quote by Colson in the prologue, after his devastation at the political scandal of Watergate: “He chose the one experience in which I could not glory for His glory.” Time and time again, Colson’s book challenged me to rethink how I was walking through Christian life, whether it pertained to reading and understanding God’s Word, pursuing the holiness of Jesus Christ, or having a change of mind to turn back to God and repent. I’m in amazement at how Colson’s life has done a complete 180 turn, from being a self-absorbed politician to a man after God’s own heart in a ministry that I would never have even thought of: prisons. Thank God for the way He’s worked through Colson!
