Sick of soft, comfortable Christianity? You know, the kind that revolves around how you can have the greatest life (for God’s glory, of course) complete with the best relationships, the best career and the best of, well, everything? Then get ready to join the revolution in Joyce Meyer’s latest book, The Love Revolution—ironically and arguably her best self-help book yet—precisely because it’s not about self.
Declaring war on selfishness, Meyer advocates the overthrow of self-centered living with a revolution of love-in-action. From encouraging the smallest acts of kindness to alleviating some of the world’s greatest heartaches such as starvation, poverty and sex trafficking, Meyer shows readers how to radically put love into action through chapters such as “Make People Feel Valuable,” “Overcome Evil With Good” and “Find Out What People Need and Be Part of the Solution.”
Several chapters are beautifully accentuated by personal testimonies penned by such “Love Revolutionaries” as worship leader Darlene Zschech, musician Martin Smith, pastor Paul Scanlon, author John C. Maxwell and pastor Tommy Barnett. Meyer’s “Love Creed” at the end of the book succinctly summarizes the book’s premise: “I take up compassion and surrender my excuses. I stand against injustice and commit to live out simple acts of God’s love. I refuse to do nothing. This is my resolve. I AM THE LOVE REVOLUTION.”
