With only 69 pages of actual "book", this is a quick read, which I always find helpful with broad topics such as love.

In Part 1, Strauch walks through Christ's letter to the Church in Ephesus and discusses what it looks like to lose our first Love (Christ) and why it's dangerous.

He then moves on to Part 2, where he tells how to cultivate love. He says to Study, Pray for, Teach, Model, Guard, and Practice love.

I wrongly assumed that in the chapter on practicing love, he would offer up more concrete examples of what loving others might look like, but he doesn't. This book is very basic and belief-oriented, which isn't bad, just not what I was expecting. Having said that, for fellow practical-minded individuals, I would highly recommend his book [b:The Hospitality Commands: Building Loving Christian Community: Building Bridges to Friends and Neighbors|696434|The Hospitality Commands Building Loving Christian Community Building Bridges to Friends and Neighbors|Alexander Strauch|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347863611s/696434.jpg|682753]. If you're going to read both, I would suggest reading Love or Die first to get into the right mindset, and then move on to The Hospitality Commands to flesh out the concepts.

There was a quote that I really liked from John Stott included on page 66: "A true love for people leads to labour for them; otherwise it degenerates into mere sentimentality."

Excellent, Biblical description of the office of pastor/elder/overseer. If you want to understand the original Biblical meaning of these terms, hear a full presentation on the qualifications and responsibilities of church overseers, this is the book for you, The book also addresses false implementations of bishops and other offices of rank inside the church where appropriate.
