Dr. Barry Corey, president of Biola University, believes we tend to devalue the importance of kindness, opting instead for caustic expressions of certainty that push people away. We forget that the essence of what God requires of us is to love kindness. In this book, filled with stories from his travels around the globe, Barry shows us the forgotten way of kindness. It is a life that calls us to put ourselves at risk. A life that calls us to hope. A life of a firm center and soft edges. It is the life Christ invites us to follow, no matter what the cost.

In the book entitled Love Kindness: Discover The Power Of A Forgotten Christian Virtue, Barry Corey strives to help his readers come back into a correct understanding of what it means to, "do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with God."
Barry bases the idea of this book behind Micah, the Old Testament prophet. Micah asked God, in Micah 6:6, "With what shall I come before the Lord?" Micah offered numerous hollow suggestions, but God relied by stating, in Micah 6:8, "To do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.
Barry takes this idea not just being kind, but loving to express kindness to a new level, one that will help his readers grow in their faith and become world changing Christians. For this reason and many others, this book is a recommended purchase.

Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Collection of stories involving acts of kindnessFebruary 25, 2016Debbie from ChristFocusHarrison, ARAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4"Love Kindness" could also have been titled "Barry Corey's Acts of Kindness." It's a memoir centered around the theme of kindness. I was expecting the style to be more like a Bible study or sermon, so I was surprised that every story mentioned the author and most where about his own acts of kindness. It didn't come across as bragging as he didn't always come away looking good. I think he was just trying to show what kindness looks like in action.
Each chapter contained two or three verses from the Bible and a story or two of kindness. He started by talking about what biblical kindness is, and it isn't just "being nice." He then focused on certain elements of kindness: genuineness, humility, listening to those you disagree with, showing Christ's love, being fully present when spending time with someone, seeing others as God sees them, avoiding hypocrisy and being willing to acknowledge our mistakes, encouraging others using our time and knowledge, hospitality, not expecting anything in return, and other-centered.
The book was an easy, quick read, and he made some good points. I'd recommend this book to those interested in biblical kindness.
I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.
