First sentence: God loves you. God's love is greater than the measureless galaxies in the vast expanse of creation. It stretches eternally beyond the distant sun and plunges forever past the depths of the deepest sea....

Christian nonfiction. The topic/theme/subject matter is the LOVE OF GOD. The author stresses how transformative the love of God is, and how Christians sometimes don't know what quite to make of the love of God. It can be overwhelming and beyond comprehension.

Twelve chapters about the love of God. Each chapter does spend a good, solid amount of time in Scripture. This is always so important, in my opinion, when discussing any Christian doctrine but especially-especially important when addressing the attributes and nature of God. It is so important that Christians do not ADD or SUBTRACT to what the Bible reveals about the author--God. Books that are saturated in the Word are less likely--to a certain degree--to twist Scriptures and trick readers.

It is important that the concepts of LOVE and GOD'S LOVE (and mercy, lovingkindness, etc.) be discussed in light of what Scripture says and not contemporary society's concepts and ideas.

The book is also packed with the author's personal experiences and spiritual journey.

The book at times made me squirm. Some of the passages are hard to take/accept. I don't know if this is because it is literally so difficult to comprehend that God actually actually loves me (loves us). Or if the theology at times gets slightly off. I think definitely a few phrases here and there might be misinterpreted when taken out of context.


The love of every other person for you is based on something about you. This is not the way God loves. everyone else loves you because of something true about you. God loves you because of something true about him. It is God's nature to love. Nothing you have ever done or ever could do will make God love you. He loves you because of who he is, not who you are. God's love flows from the fact that he is God. Love is who God is and what God does. God's love will never waver.

The great love of God is his commitment, based on who he is, to delight in you, to give you wonderful things, and to protect you from harm. This love is the most precious reality in your life. You may not know it, but God's love defines you. God's love for you is the one thing in this world that gives your life meaning. God does not love you because you matter. You matter because God loves you.

Very good. I just finished, so it remains to be seen how effective this books counsel will be. I am optimistic, because this is, in my opinion, the best of the 4 books I have read on this subject.

I found this book to be a helpful book that seems to focus on married men. I agreed to review it since my husband counsels many people in our church and we are always looking to expand our library with good resources for people to borrow.

I don't think there is anyone who would argue the fact that pornography is everywhere. Where this book falls a little short is in the area of addressing this issue for women and singles. But then I tend to lean toward the fact that a woman author might reach women better since we are wired different than men and pornography presents itself in a different manner for us (i.e. romance novels, love story movies, explicit conversations, emotional entanglements that lead to imagined encounters, and less toward visual things). So over all I think this book is excellent for married men especially.

Lambert is up front in addressing the fact that he is not writing a book about the porn industry, or the statistics of such. In fact his book is focused on the grace and redemptive personality of God. Through this grace Lambert asserts that men can find the power to overcome the addiction of grace.

This is a short read, but right to the point. Filled with practical helps and advice. I think it is one of the better resources available at the time regarding this particular subject. And I believe that this is one subject that needs to be addressed and handled in a way that will produce long lasting effects.

Thanks to the publisher for this review copy.

Excellent booklet on this topic. Lambert breaks down common myths around biblical counseling. Some of these include: biblical counselors encourage counselees to quit taking psychiatric medication, biblical counselors are against medical science, and that biblical counselors do not care about suffering and only confront sin. These misconceptions are simply not true. As the former president of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors, Lambert is equipped to clarify these claims and clearly illustrates what Scripture teaches on each of these topics.

After breaking down these myths, Lambert proceeds talk about mental illness. He considers topics like what is normal, healing, the importance of the body, and suffering. Lambert is a clear writer and has written a really helpful booklet covering a lot of ground in a short span of pages. It deserves a place on every home library shelf, especially in a culture today that is becoming more and more therapeutic. Mental illness is now common parlance and many spiritual problems find proposed solutions in the world’s physical or medical remedies. Lambert is nuanced and insightful, bringing a robustly biblical treatment to these important topics.
