    We want to love Jesus more and better. So does Ryken. He wants that for the campus he leads so he preached on it during the 2012-2012 academic year. This book is the edited result.

    [T]here is hardly anything we need more in the Christian life than more love for Jesus. But how does it happen? Where does it come from? Ryken reminds us that the love we have for Jesus is the work of the Holy Spirit in us. We need to do everything we can to keep that channel open.

    We are to love God with our whole being. Ryken starts with the mind. Realizing the full extent of our sin is essential as he who is forgiven much loves much. There is an emotional element to our love for Jesus. He also addresses how hard it is loving whom we have not seen.

    Ryken explores practical ways to love Jesus, such as keeping his commandments and loving the church. We love Jesus by loving His people. There are thousands of ways to love Jesus more, he writes.

    His thoughts on why we don't love Jesus more are insightful and thought provoking. He writes of life-dominating affections and darling sins. He reminds us of the story about the uninvited woman at the Pharisee's house. She no longer cared what other people thought. She was so in love with Jesus she forgot herself completely.

    This is a very convicting book. We are the reason we do not love Jesus more. If you are ready to be honest about your affections, this is the book for you. But be ready to have your heart exposed.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of an independent and honest review.

    In his latest book, Loving Jesus More, Wheaton College President Phil Ryken calls readers to grow more in love with Jesus because he says theres hardly anything we need more in the Christian life than more love for Jesus.

    Ryken uses the spiritual imagery of marriage and infidelity throughout the Old Testament to remind readers how the hearts of Gods people often grow cold toward Himhow its the very people who have experienced Gods blessings directly who struggle to stay in love with God. With that, Ryken sets out to help readers know what to do when they know they should love Jesus more but they dont.

    Loving Jesus More shows readers that God is the source of all love and the only reason we are able to love at all is because God has placed love in our hearts through His Holy Spirit. Ryken says the key, then, is leaving lives open to the influence of the Holy Spirit. Throughout the book, he covers topics such as extravagant love, obedience as a response to a loving Savior, loving the church and Gods people, and the kind of love we ought to have for Jesus.

    Ryken also gives readers some practical tips for loving Jesus more. One of those is digging into Gods Word. He says, If we ever wonder why we do not seem to love Jesus very muchat least not as much as we shouldmaybe this is one of the reasons why: we are not reading the Bible in one of the ways we should.

    Admittedly, I am a lay person, not an academic. I thrive on simple, down-to-earth teaching. So, there were a few places where I began to get bogged down in the academic treatment of the subject. Still, I stuck it out, and there were enough nuggets throughout the book on which even I could chew for a while. There were also some aha moments along the way. I can honestly say that after reading the book I want to love Jesus more, and I am praying that God will cause me to love Jesus moreand that is a good place to be!

    One of the best things about Loving Jesus More is the study guide tucked in at the end. It helps readers to spend time thinking through the deeper issues of loving Jesus more and what it looks like in their own lives.
