內容簡介 The single most important task for any Christian is to love God with all their heart, with all their soul, and with all their mind. But what does loving with the mind look like? How can we know if our soul-love is real? And how do we grow in our heart-love? In this practical and persuasive book Dr LaFountain breaks down these three very distinct types of love. She presents each one on a continuum and provides psychological tools for the reader to self-evaluate their placement along the continuum. Biblical and psychological strategies are provided that help the reader navigate their heart, soul, and mind towards fully loving God. Understanding the uniqueness of the three types of love and how to apply each to our relationship with God allows us to fulfill the first and greatest commandment of loving God. Then perhaps when we finally meet God face-to-face we will hear 'Well done my good and faithful servant.' A MUST-READ for anyone serious about growing in their love of God. - Pastor Stephen Smickley, Church Leadership Coach. Dr. A. LaFountain is well placed to explore and develop the application of psychology to Christian behavior. In this book she provides a step-by-step self-help practice to guide her readers in fulfilling the primary goal of their religious faith. It is a valuable resource inviting reflection, change and personal development. - Dr. Michelle Peoples, Clinical Psychologist, St John of Gods, Dublin, Ireland.
