The seams of this little book bulge with life, life that acts like life, and with love that behaves like love, with all its unpredictability, with all its healing qualities, all its warm mystery, at least as much as can be assigned to language. And these pages are browser friendly. Skip around if you want. There's no order to it anyway. Some things will not be confined to a sequence, to a procession of days, to our need for order, or to reason itself. Love is one of them. It's charged with way too much divinity. It hums with too much hidden life. But I'm giving too much away. Here's a secret: This is a book of love. It only thinks it's a devotional. --From the Prologue by David Teems
Each page of this new devotional by David Teems is charged with originality, beauty and the richness of our common language, as well as necessary and timely spiritual content. Each day illuminates one subject, Love. Each entry puts Christ at the center of that love, whether it's love for your husband or wife, for you neighbor, for the stranger, for God. It's all centered in Him and in 365 lovely treatments. The language is lyrical, speaking the way love speaks, sounding the way devotion is supposed to sound. Each day also closes with a benediction, such as, "May Christ be the template by which love shapes itself in you." It's about true Christianity, about worship, about devotion, about ourselves, and much much more. An incredibly generous book, you could say it's the little book with the big heart. And finally, as it says in the Prologue, offering us perhaps the clearest description of itself, "This is a book of love. It only thinks it's a devotional."
