Someone once told me that a book reads well that reads you. In the book¿s Introduction, Nancy Stafford writes: ¿I need to grasp the wonder of God¿s love because my own love is found wanting. I do not love as God loves. I fall so short. Too often my heart is slammed shut, crusty tight. Even when I feel love there, I don¿t always express it, don¿t follow through with actions that embody true love ¿ forgiveness, long-suffering, sacrifice ¿ the very acts of love that God has demonstrated for millennia¿. Nancy may have been writing her own thoughts, but for a moment, I thought she was reading my mind. Throughout the book, Nancy continues to write many thoughtful pages to which I directly relate. At the end of each chapter (31 chapters) Nancy has included a heartfelt prayer, including the following: ¿Lord, I don¿t want to speak empty words when I say to others, ¿God loves you¿. I want them to see Your love in action through me. Forgive me for being self-centered. Move me out of my comfort zone. Help me to be more generous and thoughtful and sacrificial in ways that will be most meaningful to others, in ways that will reflect Your incredible love for them. Help me to love as You love. Amen¿. For me, the intrinsic value of Nancy Stafford¿s heartfelt words in each prayer is a thousand times greater than book¿s cost. When describing the blessings of God¿s love, Nancy writes: ¿This is a love streaming from heaven that confounds our every attempt to grasp it¿. I am thankful that God blessed Nancy with the wisdom to grasp His Love. And I am thankful that Nancy shared her blessings by writing this book. It has helped me to better understand God¿s multifaceted Love. If you have the desire to increase your ability to recognize God¿s love and increase your own capacity to love, then reading ¿The Wonder of His Love¿ is a great personal investment. I know that the time I have spent reading and re-reading this book will be paying valuable spiritual dividends to me for many decades.
The Wonder of His Love is one of the most moving books I have read in a very long time. Its universal themes of unconditional love and forgiveness apply to everyone regardless of race or religion. With all that's going on in the world today, Nancy Stafford has written a powerful book that will bring comfort and contentment to all who have the privilege of reading it. I only wish it were geared to a more mainstream reading audience so members of other faiths could benefit from its moving words. Thank you Nancy! I look forward to your next book!
