Faith 'n Fiction Saturday: The Love of God


Welcome to Faith 'n Fiction Saturday. If this is your first time participating, please read this post. It will tell you everything you need to know!

Today's Discussion:
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Since it's the day of love and all, what better time to focus on the Giver of Love? Besides the Bible, have you ever read a book that taught you, reminded you, or encouraged you about God's love for you in a new or deep way? It can be fiction or non-fiction.

My Answer:
I've read a couple of books that reminded me of God's love for me. A book that helped me through a really difficult time was The Inner Voice of Love by Henri Nouwen. The Sacred Romance and Captivating by John and Staci Eldredge also helped me to realize God's love for me. In fiction, the Circle Trilogy by Ted Dekker really drew a strong picture for me of God, his delight in His creation, and the beauty of His plan of redemption. I'm sure there are more, but I'm drawing a blank!

I read a portion of the Sacred Romance in a women's Bible study. I wasn't to crazy about the book. I'll revisit it thought.

Loved the Circle Trilogy too! Have not read Captivating, it is on my shelves.

Sunny said...

I agree with Captivating! I haven't ready Sacred Romance, though. And I've been wanting to read the Circle trilogy.

Great question, Amy!

Circle trilogy really does. also I think Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers does that as well. Books about grace such as The Grace Awakening by Charles Swindoll.

I agree about the Circle Trilogy and Francine Rivers' Redeeming Love. I've been thinking about this since I read your post yesterday, and this is what I've come up with.
