Reviews

Perfect love casts out all fear' (1 John 4.18). In this beautiful and moving book, Bishop Michael Curry reflects on the nature of God's love and the reflection of that love in human lives. Drawing on his own life and experiences he shows us that, time and again, when love is threatened by circumstances-be it poverty, racism, violence, injustice or the abuse of power-that same love has the power to shine through. Two thousand years ago Jesus called together a small band of disciples to follow him in preaching the good news of God's love. The movement we now know as the Church started off simply as 'the way.' Bishop Michael is convinced that, just as then, love and the message of love has the power to transform our world. -- The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury
in a world riven by so much division, Love is the Way is surely a book that we need right now. * Church Times *
Michael Curry believes in love. Not the kind of love that sidesteps and softens our response to the most brutal realities of our deepest, racist, economic, and human oppression. But rather, like Dr. King and, more importantly, Jesus said; the kind of radical love that may be the only thing that can finally overcome such radical sin. On a personal note, Michael is and does what he says about being a follower of Jesus and the way of God's overwhelming and overcoming love. Love is the Way is moving, heartfelt, and extraordinarily important. In this fearful time, more than perhaps ever before, the world needs this book because, as Michael says, 'Love dreams visions -- Jim Wallis, Founder and President of Sojourners
This is a profound and essential book. At once personal and universal, intimate and sweeping, it frames the great question of our time-which is, really, the great question of all time on this side of Paradise-with passion and eloquence. Michael Curry, priest and bishop, plays the prophet in these pages, drawing on his own remarkable life to show us the way we might make our own lives, and the lives of nations, warmer, better, and nobler. -- Jon Meacham, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Destiny and Power, American Lion, and Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power
Bishop Curry asks us to love ourselves, each other, and God more fully, and unlike so many others, he actually shows us how. There is no greater calling; no nobler blessing. -- Rabbi Steve Leder, author of The Beauty of What Remains
Bishop Curry proclaims and lives the way of love that has the power to transform broken systems and imperfect people. This book is a gift for our time, as is my dear brother. Listen to him. -- Bishop William J. Barber, II, co-chair of the Poor People's Campaign; author of We Are Called to Be a Movement
An easy read, this book will appeal to readers wanting to leave no one behind in their search for the beloved community. * Reform *
