Love. Period. When All Else Fails

Rasmus, Rudy. Love. Period. When All Else Fails. Brentwood, TN: Worthy Publishing. 2014.

SUMMARY:
loveLove. Period. That just about sums up the book yet there is so much more. Rudy Rasmus explains and then challenges us to love people regardless of race, gender, status, past experiences, mistakes, and beliefs. He shows how loving everyone can have such a strong impact on others as well as ourselves. Through personal stories, the author encourages us to love unconditionally, just as God does…

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Based on 1 Corinthians 13, Rudy Rasmus explains love, teaches love, shows love, reaches out in love, and finds peace and happiness in love. More than just random-acts-of-kindness, love can open doors if applied without boundaries. Love. Period. would be wonderful as a Bible Study coupled with community service in action. Set in brief chapters with highlights in bold, this book was a quick read yet could also be a deeper read with time to absorb the message. Imagine the impact such a message could have on people if we would all…Love. Period.
