Inter-Varsity Press Surrender to Love: Discovering the Heart of Christian Spirituality

In our self-reliant era, most of us recoil from the concept of surrendering to a power or authority outside ourselves. But surrender need not be seen as threatening, especially when the One to whom we surrender is the epitome of goodness and love. God doesn't want his people to respond to him out of fear of obligation. Rather, he invites us to enter into an authentic relationship of intimacy and devotion. And so God calls us to move beyond mere obedience - by surrendering to love. In this profound book, David Benner explores the twin themes of love and surrender as the heart of Christian spirituality. Through careful examination of Scripture and reflection on the Christian tradition, Benner shows how God bids us to trust fully in his perfect love.

This is one of my favourite Christian books of all time. I can't recommend it highly enough. If you are asking yourself "is this all there is" with respect to your walk with God, this book is an excellent guide in discovering more intimacy with Him. The other 2 books in the trilogy are equally excellent!!

Excellent reading. Simple and very penetrating. Draws the reader into an innocence of surrender to God's love. Strongly recommend this book for those who desire to know God's love. Reminds us scripturally how God longs for this relationship with us and makes it within our grasp, as He is the One holding us.
