Publisher's Summary

"I have read no book that more carefully, thoroughly, and tenderly displays Christ's heart." (Paul David Tripp, President, Paul Tripp Ministries; author, New Morning Mercies and My Heart Cries Out)

Christians know what Jesus Christ has done — but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is "gentle and lowly in heart." This audiobook reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who he is for sinners and sufferers today.

Disappointment.

I wanted to like this book. Its opening paragraph, about how this book is for all suffering, frustrated Christians was a strong start. However, the book ends up being not much more than a long-winded spiel on how horribly hellishly sinful we humans all are, but thankfully Jesus is emotionally moved to pity for us. To an extent, sure, Christianity holds that this premise is true, and I'm not necessarily negating all that. But this book feels plain wrong, almost like an emotional bait-and-switch, for suffering believers looking for some reassurance of God's love. Instead of conveying God's endless empathy and tenderness for us, the tone of ninety percent of it just makes you feel crappier. DON'T bother with this book especially if you have a history of surviving religious abuse, being constantly told how bad you are just because of your humanity.

Let Yourself Be Loved

A beautiful work that untangles every lie, doubt, or self reasoning that we won’t be loved and accepted fully by God. To know Him is to love Him and have peace. Thank you!

The book is 5 star, audio quality 4.

This is an excellent book outlining the compassionate and loving heart of Jesus Christ. The audio is bearable, but lacks clarity and crispness making it difficult to listen to while on the road.

refreshing like pool of cool water

greatly enjoyed the kindle book while listening to this at same time. This book will be read 50 years from now more so then the years it first came out. A pure gem like the puritans themselves.

For those who have a relationship with Jesus

if you are a follower of Jesus this book is for you. it is meant to be read in the context of an experiential relationship, not an academic exercise of the intellect.
