Book Review: The Seven Laws of Love

From Book Description

“In our fast-paced, success-obsessed culture, we’re constantly tempted to chase after things that don’t matter. We’ve been conditioned to value possessions over people, status over relationships, and ourselves over God.

But the reality is this: God created love to be the centerpiece of our lives.

In The Seven Laws of Love, Dave Willis makes the case for a love revival and proves that in returning to a life of love we have no greater model than the one who is love himself.”

The Seven Laws of Love

My Comments

For 2016, I made a commitment to read one book a month on relationships/marriage and this book certainly fits the bill. Love is the foundation to all relationships, and in a conversational tone, Willis lays out what he believes to be the essential elements needed for loving God and others.

There are a lot of positives about The Seven Laws of Love. It is well-written, practical, and is loaded with simple steps or questions to help the reader get from reading the concept to putting the concept into action. He uses lots of real-life examples, including his own, to illustrate his points and some of those stories just touches the heart in a very deep way.

There are spots that I felt were too simplistic or preachy but I also felt like the author’s heart came through in the book. It reads as if Willis is sitting with you and talking honestly and openly about God and others. It is definitely worth the read.

I give The Seven Laws of Love four (4) stars.
