Review: The Reckless Love of God by:Alex Early

The Reckless Love of God: Experiencing the Personal, Passionate Heart of the Gospel
About the Book:
Assurance of God's Personal Love for Us 
The startling truth about the love of God has lost its potency. It is not a passionless, theological idea. It is a real love that feels and even suffers. Whether you grew up in a Christian home and have forgotten this essential truth, or you never knew it in the first place, we all need to be reminded--and assured--that God's love is real and personal. 
"The Reckless Love of God "is about pulling readers in close and asking if they have really considered what it means to say, " "Jesus loves you." 
"Nothing changes lives and grows the church faster, more effectively, and more thoroughly than being captivated by this reality. But the love of Jesus is not just a means to another end. Receiving the love of Jesus is the end itself. 
Includes end-of-chapter questions for individual or group use.

My Review:
 The wonderful power of the grace granted to us by way of Jesus' work on the cross. God's love cuts through all the barriers and boundaries placed in His way. You are His child and His ultimate goal is to share an eternity with you. He has reckless abandon when it comes to His children and no human mind or heart can understand or fathom it but boy when you are immersed in, there is absolutely nothing better.

 His love can actually be physically felt a lot of times the closer you are to Him, that is why an intimate relationship with Him is paramount especially in today's world. God has no favorites and He definitely doesn't value you one over the other, even when it comes to sin. Sin is bad and He views them all the same.

 The author is giving his own commentary on the vastness of love that Jesus has for us all and just what he was willing to do to save us from torment. We are deeply loved more than we can ever imagine by a God that will NEVER leave our side. This book is a really good guide on exploring that.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Bethany House.
