My Review

Love is what it is all about and in this inspiring devotional, Max Lucado explores different kinds of love. This book is divided into the following sections:

  • Loved with a Steadfast Love
  • Loved with a Perfect Love
  • Loved with a Wise Love
  • Loved with a Merciful Love
  • Loved to Love Others
Within each of the five sections listed above, Max Lucado explores each type of love in several devotionals.  Each devotional begins with a scripture verse then provides a devotion from one of his previous books.  He then provides a prayer as well as additional verses of scripture.

I have always been a huge fan of the writings of Max Lucado and highly recommend this devotional as a gift or for yourself.
