From the Publisher:

It's been over two decades since a ministry was born that would transform the lives of men and women the world deemed hopeless. And it's been over ten years since the ministry's founder, Chuck Colson, shook the evangelical world with one of Christian literature's most powerful and disturbing masterpieces.

Today, having fulfilled all predictions of its ascent to classic status, Loving God is, if anything, more relevant than ever. For those who have wondered whether there isn't more to Christianity than what they've known - and for those who have never considered the question - it points the way to faith's cutting edge. Here is a compelling, probing look at the cost of discipleship and the meaning of the first and greatest commandment - one that will strum a deeper, truer chord within even as it strips the trappings of shallow, self-centered believism.

From the Back Cover:

What does it mean to love God? Charles Colson's answers are both surprising and inspiring. Loving God, Colson says, does not mean what you may think. The answers spring from the deep traditions of the Christian faith, presented in this groundbreaking book amid a tapestry of richly textured tales and compelling interlocutions. Colson's brave new call to love God takes us on a fascinating journey from a Soviet gulag to an Italian estate, from Augustine to Mother Teresa, from an underworld kingpin to an American POW, from the myths behind the "born again" movement to the pat answers of Christian pop culture. Here, Colson helps us rediscover our religious heritage -- and our own hearts. Loving God will force you to think, to feel, to question. It presents a view of loving God that could alter the makeup of the church itself. It is tough stuff from a Christian whose love for God knows no compromise.
