The Reckless Love of God Experiencing the Personal Passionate Heart of the Gospel

, The Reckless Love of God Experiencing the Personal Passionate Heart of the Gospel, Servants of GraceOver the past decade, we’ve seen a huge increase in writing and speaking on what the gospel is and how Christians can live a gospel-formed life. In his first book The Reckless Love of God Experiencing the Personal Passionate Heart of the Gospel, Alex Early writes to help readers understand what it means to say “Jesus loves me.”

This book is broken down into seven chapters based on the song Jesus Loves me this I know for the Bible tells me so. Each chapter is brief but not so short that the author can’t develop his point for the chapter. Alex notes that, “Many Christians gravitate toward the “what” of the gospel without considering the “why” (19).

The author notes, “Telling others about the love of Jesus has a way of carving deep grooves in your heart” (121). Christians have been commanded to go out and make disciples. Part of this vital work is evangelism. The more we are taking in the Bible and applying who we are in Christ into our daily lives, the more we will share Christ with others. Earley says, “Telling others about the love of Jesus has a way of carving deep grooves in your heart.”

The Reckless Love of God is a very helpful book on the love of God. Whether you grew up as a Christian and have forgotten this essential truth or you’re hearing it for the first time, you need to be reminded of the amazing, mind-blowing fact that God loves His people. I highly recommend this book and believe reading it will help you to see your ongoing need for Jesus.

I received this book for free from Bethany House for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
