God's second commandment is that we should love one another. Why is it so hard? In all of us there is a capacity and a yearning to love that we are afraid to release. We want to give love to others but fear that our gift will be rejected. Can the barriers between ourselves and others be overcome?
In this simple, inspirational book John Powell looks at what love means and how we can learn to love others. The one test of true love, he says, is this: can we really forget ourselves? It is possible only if we lose ourselves in the joy of a life lived wholly for God.
