A Loving Life: In a World of Broken Relationships
Miller, Paul E.
“If there is a message the world needs more to hear and to start obeying than the one Paul Miller brings here, I dont know what it is. Beautifully written and attested by plenty of personal experience, A Loving Life unearths dimensions of the book of Ruth I had never noticed, and will now never forget.”See All

“A Loving Life is a worthy successor to Paul Millers much-appreciated book on prayer. It is a careful, thorough analysis of the book of Ruth, understanding it as a love story and making good applications to our own experiences and needs for love. Paul here shows not only a deep understanding of Gods Word, but also a rich knowledge of human nature, both in the ancient world and today. He offers biblical responses to many of the misunderstandings and problems we have with love of all kinds. May the Lord give this book a broad readership!”See All

“Paul Miller reminds us with boldness and insight that a relationship with Jesus Christ means journeying with him to the cross, where we most know of the love of God for us. As such, it is the only path to learning to incarnate that love ourselvesand so to dance to the Spirits constant rhythm of being loved and loving others.”See All

“Death is the center of love. Millers insight comes as he beautifully retells the story of Ruth in terms of the gospel, revealing a path of love more dear and deep than our cultural icons and distractions can create, and more precious than any pursuit of self can dream. Here is love vast, unmeasured, boundless, free, and freeing.”See All

“Being married to Joni, a longtime quadriplegic, I know my marriage vows are always in need of polishing. And Paul Millers new book fits the bill; Ive yellow-highlighted nearly every page. A Loving Life reinforces that the bestthe onlykind of love is one-way and without an exit strategy. If you are looking to shore up the for-better-or-for-worse, in-sickness-and-in-health promises in your marriage, you couldnt lay your hands on a better read.”See All

“The book of Ruth is about hesed, a loyal love, that Ruth shows to Naomi, Boaz shows to Ruth, and, behind the scenes, God demonstrates to his people. Paul Miller not only brilliantly explains the story of Ruth, but also shows how hesed love can transform us and our relationships. I highly recommend this book.”See All

“Reading this book nourished me deeply. With caring attentiveness especially to often-overlooked modern widows and widowers, Paul Miller gently pastors us through the story of two courageous, hesed-embracing single women, Naomi and Ruth. He invites us to embrace the death at the center of covenant love and to learn it as the downstroke of realitythe upstroke of which is ever the grace of surprising resurrection. In Christ, Christians all, and the world, reap the far-reaching blessing of these unlikely benefactresses. And we do again in this little book.”See All

“Every once in a great while one reads a book that is so profound, so fresh, and so life changing that you cant get it out of your mind or your heart. A Loving Life is that kind of book. Walk with Paul Miller, Ruth, and Naomi to the place of real love, and youll never again settle for a substitute. Read this book, rejoice in it, and give it to everyone you know. They will bless you for giving it to them as I bless Paul Miller for writing it.”See All

“Im not exaggerating when I say that this is the most honest, timely, and helpful book Ive ever read about the costly and exhausting demands of loving well. And at the same time, A Loving Life is the most faithful, alluring, and encouraging presentation of Gods love for us in Jesus Ive fed on in years. These two themes go hand in hand. Through the biblical story of Ruth, Paul Miller gives us hope, not hypethe freedom to suffer well, stay present, and live expectantly in all of our relationships. Thank you, Paul, for making the gospel more beautiful and believable to me.”See All
