Loving our Enemies, a Gold Medal winner in the theology category of the 2015 Illumination Book Awards, is a perfect book for our times -- times when violence war, killing aggression, feuds, attacks and counter-attacks seem to cast their shadow on the major part of our known world; when the little troubles of every day, such as arguments, differences of opinion, small offences escalate into battles and wars --making the commandment 'love your enemies' difficult to interpret, even more so -- to live.
This book is 'deeply radical' according to Martin Johnson. The author exudes gentle wisdom in dealing with the theme. He weaves together through stories and anecdotes a book which is easy to read, encouraging and optimistic.
Deeply insightful and beautiful, it can easily be -- a handbook on love of enemies for today!
