Summary

A Personal Growth Finalist in the 2004 Word Guild Canadian Writing Awards!

"Only God deserves absolute surrender because only God can offer absolutely dependable love." 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 or 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 audiobook, 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. Writing with mature wisdom gleaned from many years of integrating psychological and spiritual insight, Benner demonstrates keen perception and sensitivity to the realities of spiritual formation. In each chapter he includes meditative exercises to guide you into a greater experience of trust and spiritual transformation. God is love, and he intends for you to live in his love. Surrender to Love will lead you to an unexpected place, where yieldedness to God frees you to become who he created you to be.

Surrendering is the way

The author invites us to move beyond our own situations to give ourselves to God by surrendering. He weaves insights and stories of people he has worked with into a concept from Scripture of surrendering to love. Surrendering to God. I found the book helpful and the narrator does a good job of making it accessible.

A great review of love and grace

This is a much needed look at what Christian love is and isn't. Grounded in basic human physiology and Biblical teaching. Encouraging, refreshing, and rejuvenating.

Love is deeper, harder and better

A perfectly expressed summary of an infinitely complex subject. Read it . Believe it . Do it. And then let it be done to you.

More of this and less performance

If we can learn how to let go of all the performances of getting people and God to love us. To then allow the love and acceptance we so desire the world would be a better place. Great listen

transforming truth

the book points the reader towards real transformation rather then patching up our inner self
