About This Book
Love . . . It's the never-ending, driving quest—the all consuming need—the motivating desire—of every man, woman, and child on earth. But just what is love? Is it accurately defined by the sum total of all the song lyrics, love poems, and love stories ever written? All the movies ever filmed? All the dramas ever acted?
Toward a deeper, more satisfying answer to the question "What is love?" this book contains a distilled, carefully chosen sampling of poems, quotations, articles, essays, stories, and personal reflections focused on love. It is in a search for the true definition of love, where this book best succeeds is in its undeviating focus on the Source of all real love—the One whose name is synonymous with love. As the author explains,
None can live without Love
It’s the cure for hearts that starve
A Personal gift from our Father above
For “God is love”
After all, love, in all of its manifestations, is a part of human experience. We were created to love—and until we find the true object of our love there can be no happiness or fulfillment.
Real love cannot exist outside of a relationship. And whether yours is horizontal (involving other people around you) or vertical (between you and your God) or both, this book will open new vistas of understanding and delight as you take in its pages.
