Book Review: The Perfect Love by Ruth Myers

About This Book: WHERE CAN YOU FIND THE KIND OF LOVE YOU TRULY NEED? “If we want real love, ideal love, limitless love, God’s heart is where to find it. It’s the only love big enough to meet the God-sized needs of your life.” --Ruth Myers
Most people–even those with a deep faith–fail to really grasp the incredibly deep and passionate love God has for them. Yet, while God’s love for us is beyond description, it doesn’t have to be beyond our experience.
In The Perfect Love, Ruth Myers helps uncover the surprising, quiet clues and expressions in Scripture of just how much God loves you. With the expressions of prayer and praise at the end of each chapter, you’ll learn to experience God’s love more deeply and return it more fully in worship. And you’ll welcome a new sense of
security, honor, and significance that comes from experiencing how God’s love — The Perfect Love–truly meets your deepest needs. (taken from - waterbrook multnomah publishing)

My Thoughts: I was excited to read this book because in college, I had the pleasure of reading different book about God’s love for you called ‘Falling in Love with Jesus’. I learned so much from that one and used it as a comparison point when reading this one. I have to say I was rather disappointed. Although the topic of this book was great it really wasn’t a good read. I found it hard to be engaged in what the author was saying. It tries to be a devotional book which isn’t a bad thing, just not what I think the Author was trying to do. Unfortunately, I found this book extremely difficult to get into. I did stick it out and finish the book and I would like to add that although the books starts off slow and a bit boring it does get slightly more exciting and fun to read towards the end, but not enough for me to want to read it again. One aspect of this book that I liked is how she applied scripture to her experiences in her life to point out God perfect love for us. I Wouldn’t say I wont recommend this books but its defiantly one you have to be seeking not just one to pick up and read on a whim.

"I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review."
