"Bold as Love" by Bob Roberts, Jr.

Loving others is a command from God, yet many people find it hard to love those who don't agree with them. Those disagreements can be about anything, but are especially difficult when it comes to a belief system. In this new book, Pastor Bob Roberts takes the time to reach out to each of us and encourage us to reach out to others around us, all of our neighbors. 

We truly do live in a global society. Travel is so easy and people move for a myriad of reasons. With people come different religious systems and beliefs, most strongly held and adhered to. It can be difficult to stay engaged with others when there is so much "PC" and worry about saying the wrong thing. But, we can still be bold in our conversations and loving in our choice of words. Faith is meant to be shared. It isn't something to hide away in storage until we are ready to move. It is a living, breathing thing that needs to be freely given. Only when we share our faith with others do we see the changes that happen to us and to those around us. 

This is a book that will challenge you to get up and take risks. I think my favorite chapter is Chapter 6, "Living Our Faith with All Our Faiths Present." We all need strength and courage, and this book will indeed provide ways to get them. This book is for all Christians. If you long to have a deeper relationship with others, be as "Bold as Love."
