Overview

What does LOVE look like?

Love is food and comfort to a ten-year-old amputee, abandoned on the side of the road

Love is a new roof for an elderly widow installed before the rainy season

Love is sharing hope with the homeless man on your street corner

Love is not just an ideal. Love is action. Love looks like something.

For over thirty years, Rolland and Heidi Baker have been living examples of the love of Jesus to the people of Mozambique. Here they share incredible true stories of how--when they learned to stop for the one in front of them--God unleashed His miraculous power to change lives.

Yet God isn't moving only in distant lands. He's moving right where you are. If you are willing, He can--and will--do amazing things when you learn that love is as simple as stopping for the one in front of you.

Because if you don't stop, who will?

Meet the Author

Heidi and Rolland Baker, founders of Iris Ministries, served as missionaries in Indonesia and Hong Kong before following God's call in 1995 to Mozambique. In the face of overwhelming need, the Bakers now watch God provide miraculously for well over 10,000 children every day through their ministry, and many more through the Iris network of more than 15,000 churches, Bible schools, primary schools, and remote outreach programs. They live in Mozambique, Africa.

    It was refreshing reading "Learning To Love" and seeing all that the Lord has done in Mozambique.

    Heidi and Rolland Baker share wonderful and encouraging testimonies of their work through Iris Ministries.

    Granted, I personally struggle with the whole miracle element; the blind seeing, the deaf hearing and the dead rising. However, I respect the work that God is doing through the Baker's in Mozambique.

    I enjoyed reading the different stories throughout "Learning To Love". The book is inspirational and I recommend it.

    In conclusion, I want to thank Chosen Books for sending me a complimentary copy of this book to review.

    Learning to Love is stories from Heidi and Rolland and their min

    Learning to Love is stories from Heidi and Rolland and their ministry in Mozambique and the amazing signs and wonders they are witnessing there and they do it out of complete love for the people.

    One things that was stated many times through the book is "Love looks like something."

    Isn't that true? If I tell my husband I love him but then never show him will he believe me?

    Or if I tell my kids I love them but lay on the couch all day and never spend time with them, will they believe me?

    No. Love does look like something. This book will challenge you to examine what love looks like in your life. How are you living out the Christ-like love you claim to have?

    Some other great quotes from the book are:

    "I am not qualified to do what I do." p. 12

    "If you're not in love, why serve, why minister, why turn up at church, why go to another meeting?" p. 34

    "Love God and love the one in front of you." p. 54

    That's just a taste of some of the things you will encounter if you pick up this book. If you enjoy reading stories of missionaries you will love this book.

    I received an egalley of this book from Chosen Books, a division of Baker Publishing, in exchange for an honest review.
