Grady Daniel Jr., who has spent many years as a teacher, Christian leader, and psychiatric rehabilitation counselor, asks a fundamental question in this book: what is missing in the attitudes of so many ministers, teachers, doctors, and businessmen in their dealings with those whom it is their responsibility to serve? Though many fulfill the requirements of their work on paper - they often fail in the most basic sense - to serve with Christian love - agape.This book is about that necessary love - agape - the kind of love that God has for man: sacrificial love, seeking only the best for its object - a "gift love." Mr. Daniel's discussion of agape, though firmly grounded in sound biblical scholarship, is not merely theological: it is geared to helping everyone - whatever their role in life understand what agape can mean to them - and those whom they serve - for agape is in a very real way, man's most complete fulfillment - why it is said that is better to give than to receive.Of A Love That Changes Lives the author says, "This book should be a beginning ...," It can be just that for you a beginning of a new life, based on agape.Grady Daniel, Jr., B.S.
