 About the Book 

Christians are often known for what they oppose and what they prohibit—both what they prohibit themselves from doing and what they try to prohibit others from doing. Pounds argues that Christians need to re-focus themselves on the primary commandmentMoreChristians are often known for what they oppose and what they prohibit—both what they prohibit themselves from doing and what they try to prohibit others from doing. Pounds argues that Christians need to re-focus themselves on the primary commandment of their faith—to love. Loving God and people is primary for Christians. Sin hinders us from loving well. Thus, the primary emphasis of the Christian life ought to always be on learning to love God and others. Managing sin ought to be a secondary emphasis and always done in light of the goal of loving God and others.This book discusses how sinners redeemed in Christ can be apprentices in the art of love, taking on the nature of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As they learn the craft, justified sinners will be increasingly aware of just how deeply-rooted sin is in their lives and how affected they are by it. Nevertheless, they will find that the work of God in their lives can transform them into people capable of learning to love like God loves.
