Steve Palm-Houser at the Examiner, offers up a wonderful book review of The Practice of Love. In it, Steve writes:
“The rabbi Jesus had little time or patience for theological abstractions and debates over fine points of the moral law. What mattered most to Jesus was the practical, on-the-ground, day-to-day living out of the two greatest commandments: to love God, and to love our neighbor as ourselves.
The contributors to The Practice of Love: Real Stories of Living into the Kingdom of God (Civitas Press, 2011) come from a variety of Christian backgrounds, from progressive to conservative. But their church affiliations are only incidental to the stories they have to tell. Differences in theology fade into the background where they belong, subsumed by the power of the book’s central theme.”
