The Lost Commandment is an eye-opening book that unpacks the meaning of an often overlooked teaching of Jesus Christ. Using stories, Scripture and practical applications, author Dave Greber shows how the "Lost Commandment" reveals seven characteristics of Christian love that will bring you greater joy.
The gospel according to Greber, an attorney, is that our conventional depiction of Jesus's deepest message is flawed. While casual believers and nonbelievers alike might assert that the Golden Rule ("Do unto others
") is the core ethical statement of the New Testament, Greber insists that Jesus meant to replace it with "As I have loved you, so you must love one another" (John 13:34). VERDICT While Greber's insistence on the "lostness" of the notion moves strangely close to a Gnosticism he would surely disdain, he follows the implications of his idea with sense and piety.
