“I know many who can hypothesize about Love. I know many who can debate the theology, they can tell me the Greek definitions and Hebrew pronunciation, and there is nothing wrong with that. There is beauty in loving God with all of our minds. But infinitely more important is loving God with all of our heart. Love’s not rote discipline: it’s a response birthed from an encounter, from a revelation of our heavenly Father.” Prone To Love – pg, 50
Those of you that follow this blog know that I read…. alot. I make no secret that I receive books via several publishing companies and other sites at no charge to me, in exchange for my review of the book. I am not required to give a positive review.
I have been blessed to read some amazing and insightful books. I’ve also read a few that just didn’t do it for me. And I’ve also discovered that I do enjoy reading good Christian fiction – from time to time.
That being said… Of the nearly 40 books that I have read in the last 6 months, I have not encountered a book that has affected me like “Prone To Love” by Jason Clark.
I’ve not been this bold before, but I am encouraging you to pick up this book and let it bless your heart as it did mine.
Below is the review that I have left on several sites
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“Stop Trying To Become Who You Already Are” “If you have been around Christian circles long enough, you have heard the phrase, “child of God.” As believers, we use language like this all the time describing our relationship with the Father – but do we really know what it means? What if we actually lived out the relationship and reality we talked, preached, and sung about? Easy. We would change the world. The roadblock preventing us from stepping into our identities as sons and daughters of God is not lack of discipline, resources, or creative ideas. We have all this… What’s missing? To discover who you are, first, you must know Who the Father is and what He’s like”
My husband asked me the other day what I was reading. I showed him the cover of the book. He asked what it is about. I said… God’s Love. To which he replied… and??? And I looked at him for a long minute and said… I can’t put it into words right now. Where do you begin to write about a book like Prone To Love?
This 220-page treasure is jammed with so much honest truth, that I am indeed having a hard time putting it into words. I can tell you that I was blessed more than once reading the authors stories during this journey of Love. Pure and honest – and sometimes hysterically funny – stories. We try so hard to make it all so much more than it is. When it all boils down to just what the author says… LOVE. God’s love… that He is always with us and He is always speaking to us… and what He is speaking is Love. If you want to become more away of His presence, it starts with believing that He loves you.
This is another book that will not be relegated to the shelf. No… this book requires a second read, and then perhaps a deeper study. To say that I loved this book and it’s message is an understatement. A profound thank you to the author for sharing this with us.
