Book Review: His Endless Love

A couple of weeks ago a fellow blogger Samantha Sali was looking for other bloggers to review her recently published book. As an avid reader I jumped at the opportunity to read a freshly released book. His Endless Love is written about the power of God’s love, and for those of you that know me well don’t be alarmed. Since I was diagnosed with a brain tumour earlier this year my reading preference has shifted. Initially I shied away from books centered around illness, death or trauma, and I was more drawn towards self-help and non-fiction. I have always been interested in and read self-help books because I feel that I could always be a better person. To be totally honest I didn’t know that the book that I had just volunteered to review was about God’s love (but I should have figured it out from the title).
I was pleasantly surprised that while His Endless Love is centered around biblical teachings, and more specifically God’s love that it wasn’t evangelical. Author Samantha Sali shares her story about growing up in an abusive home and how her belief in God helped her through her situation.
In the first chapter Love is… she adds a variety of quotes about what love is and this particular one stuck me.
?To love is a choice. It means meeting the other person where they are at in their brokenness.?
It sounds a little dark but in truth we are all a little broken. Each of us has something or a series of things that have beaten us down. Accepting ourselves and others as we are is key to having loving relationships. To love is a choice as is being open and accepting of love.
As I was reading her book (more critically than I normally would have) I started thinking that the premise of the book could be improved upon if she shared the stories of others in addition to her own. It was as if she read my mind because the next chapter was a story about a youth pastor that had just lost his family in a car accident. While the pastor’s story was tragic Sali focused on the positives that can come from a bad situation. Finding the good in a bad situation is what I have been trying to do over the past couple of months so this particular chapter was close to my heart.
Congratulations to Samantha on the release of your first book. I look forward to reading your future works.
The fine print: I was given a copy of the book to review but the opinions are my own.
