William K. Ruffing answers the age-old question about whether there truly is a God in his non-fiction book For the Love of God. While answering this question, so many more come up that it can cause one’s head to spin straight into a whirlwind. If one is looking for answers to whether there is a God, a Heaven or Hell, why God would send his Son to die for us, or many other answers, this book is a great place to start.
Ruffing uses wonderful, easy to understand language throughout his book, so the reader doesn’t have to be a Bible scholar to actually understand the book. Each subject is given its own well thought out chapter, with an introduction to what the subject is and what it would mean for the reader, scripture to back up what the author is saying, and occasionally a nice little story or anecdote. The author also dives a bit into the original meaning behind certain words and why they have been used in Bible. The author also gives us a ton of fascinating footnotes on everything from verses, to definitions, to other thoughts to ponder.
I enjoyed reading this book very much, so much that I never put it down and finished it in one sitting. I found the stories and anecdotes to be delightful additions to the book, furthering exactly what the author was trying to say. I feel that this book would be beneficial for anyone looking for answers or guidance in the areas of God, His love for us, and how to be able to understand the Bible better. Every idea that the author has is backed up by scripture and leads up to a full summary where each question that the author presents is given an answer.
I really couldn’t find anything that I didn’t like about this book, it was well thought out, answering every question brought up. It was also well written, I couldn’t find any errors which gave it a professionally edited feel to the book. The authors writing was engaging and fun, which caused me to be fully immersed while reading the book, I finished it before I realized that I was anywhere near the end.
I whole-heartedly give For the Love of God by William K. Ruffing a 4 out of 4 stars. It was enjoyable, informative, and easy to read. I believe that many people will be able to find answers to their questions, and hopefully a better understanding of who God is and why He loves us so much.
