Love in Action
How is it possible to command love? What is the interrelationship of faith, hope and love? How does faith and love actually conquer fear?
Here is a practical small group study that digs into tough ethical choices that believers face. Working from the “two greatest commandments,” as well as many other texts, Armour leads the reader (and the study group) through the necessary implications of applying love to life’s sticky and challenging situations.
This study grew from Armour’s many counseling sessions with lifelong members of the church who thought that they were practicing love, but in fact were not. The key to a breakthrough came when the discussion moved forward from a doctrinal or conceptual level to a translation of love into “the habits of the heart.”
The author writes in a clear and succinct manner. He does not shy away from the tough questions that are an inherent part of this subject, while at the same time offering important thought processes for the discovery of workable answers to life’s great questions.
This is a rewarding study that has been used for many years with several small groups. Many that have used it say that they go back and review what they studied years later to remind themselves how biblical love really does work.
