Book Review: Love Changes Everything by Micah Berteau
This past month, I read a book about love - God's love. I know there are a lot of books out there on this same subject, so I was not initially thrilled about reading yet another one. After all, this topic seems to have been overdone in Christian circles. My specific wariness was due to the increasing feel good, lukewarm church ideology that we must just love everyone to pieces and ignore sin. So, when I was asked if I would review Micah Berteau's book about love changing everything, my suspicions were up.
I am glad to report to you that this book is not just about God's love and acceptance but nothing of the need for repentance. I found that many times Pastor Berteau points the reader toward a faith that includes repentance without being legalistic or giving the impression that one can buy his or her way into heaven.
There is a world of fake out there and I think that everyone can agree that it's difficult to know who to believe and what to believe, even when news comes from what we first think is from a reliable source. I appreciate that Berteau points his readers to the only One who IS truth, who speaks only the truth, who really embodies what truth is all about. After all, Jesus Christ is God, right? And God is truth.
I read Love Changes Everything cover to cover. I didn't find anything that I feel is not Scriptural. And that is what keeps me reading a religious book about love. I can wholeheartedly say that I can recommend this book to others.
