A marvelous book! It got me thinking about what it really means to be a Christian. Colson expounds, with the aid of strikingly illustrative stories,on key doctrines of the Christian worldview such as: the authority of the Bible, the meaning and nature of sin, the necessity of conversion,and a life of holiness. And he powerfully applies these to the conscience, thus compelling anyone who confesses the name of Christ to get up and be a Christian. ( )

A treatise on how we can love God. Colson devotes the first part of the book to how we develop a relationship with him and the second to showing how we can carry out that relationship in the world. Colson was fond of the referring to this as "making the invisible kingdom visible" There's nothing new here, but the examples, mostly drawn from Prison Fellowship, are great examples of creative ways to work out faith in life.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0310470307, Hardcover)

In his magnificent classic, Chuck Colson shakes the church from its complacency with a penetrating look at the cost of being Christian. For those who have wondered whether there isn't more to Christianity than what they have known---and for those who have never considered the question---Loving God points the way to faith's cutting edge. Here is a compelling, probing look at the cost of discipleship and the meaning of the first and greatest commandment---one that will strum a deeper, truer chord within even as it strips away the trappings of shallow, cultural Christianity. 'Looking for the complete volume on Christian living? This is it. And the title sums it up. If you desire life deep, rich, and meaningful, then it is simply Loving God.' Joni Eareckson Tada President, Joni and Friends
