Charles Wendell Colson (October 16, 1931 – April 21, 2012), generally referred to as Chuck Colson, served as Special Counsel to President Richard Nixon from 1969 to 1970. Once known as President Nixon's "hatchet man", Colson gained notoriety at the height of the Watergate scandal, for being named as one of the Watergate Seven, and pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for attempting to defame Pentagon Papers defendant Daniel Ellsberg

A former presidential aide to Richard Nixon and founder of the international ministry Prison Fellowship, he wrote several books that have shaped Christian thinking on a variety of subjects, including Born Again, Loving God, How Now Shall We Live?, The Good Life, and The Faith. His radio broadcast, BreakPoint, at one point aired to two million listeners. Chuck Colson donated all of his royalties, awards, and speaking fees to Prison Fellowship Ministries.

Does loving God mean going to church, tithing, having regular prayer times? .

He discovered that loving God is obeying God-rarely easy, sometimes inconvenient, often painful, and entirely satisfying.

In his magnificent classic, Chuck Colson shakes the church from its complacency with a penetrating look at the cost of being Christian. Here is a compelling look at the cost of discipleship and the meaning of the first and greatest Commandment.

I've read this book at least three times over the years. I've given it away as gifts. It challenges me to look deeply at my own life and my own love for God. There are few books I can read multiple times. This is one of the few.

Even though written some time ago, it has even more meaning now. How Chuck new where we were going politically in the 70’s and 80’s is amazing. We get so caught up in the every day crisis that is around us now that we forget what a true crisis is. God loves us, unfortunately he also gave us free will, which we seem very capable of messing up. Because of his love we need to move to his walk and simply love others weather our opinions are right or wrong, God wants us simply to show his/our love to others and help them to learn of his unconditional love.

To be a Christian means obeying when it is not popular, even dangerous. However, this is the path to not only loving God, but experiencing love and meaning in life. True stories illustrate the costs and the rewards. Everyone should read it and reflect deeply.

When I first picked up this book, I was a bit erred by the sunflower on the cover and wondered what this book might want to tell me. But now after having finished the last pages, I can see why Colson chose to title this work simply "Loving God." In these pages live very simple stories of simple people like ourselves who chose to love God as strongly as they could, and in so doing they found that loving others was the key to understanding God's love.

Personally, I went through this book just one chapter a day, and at the end of each day felt so much more inspired to go into action instead of sitting idly by. This is a true self-help book for the serious Christian or for someone just curious as to what serving God really means. So help yourself by getting inspired (hopefully, as I have) to at least look at the people around you and want to show them how God loves, not to find new converts or to make money together, but just to care for those you meet. I even think someone just looking into the Christian faith or just curious about what real Christians look like could benefit from taking a read. (I say, avoid any book with the author's face firmly on the cover. They are not there to exemplify true servant leadership!) Good luck.

This was recommended by a friend. I'm really enjoying it! Reminding me of what the Christian life should look like. Plus, there are stories of people of faith, makes for a great read!

Wonder what it means to love God? This is the question this author relentlessly pursues in this work. To learn from Charles Colson is to learn not only from the Bible but from his life story. It is clear that Colson has scoured the Bible, consulted countless other works, peered into the depths of his own soul, and inquired into the experiences of many others to find the answer as to what it means to love God. If you are interested in the question I highly recommend this engaging and insightful work. It's hard to put down and definitely in my top ten best books I've read on Christianity.

After I got through the first chapter, the rest of the book was one hundred percent awesome. Colson offers a generous selection of mini-stories within the book - some a page long and others captured in a footnote. He defines, with great genius-like insight, the core definitions of many words like "holiness" and "sin" and puts them in a whole new light. So no matter how long you have been a Bible believing Christian, you will find this book helpful and excellent in every manner. No wonder it has a 5 star rating!
Still continues to bless and challenge me in my Christian walk. Would recommend highly to anybody wanting to love God more.
