Learning to live like our Teacher. . . .
Tim Hall. Beautiful Interference: Learning to Love God with All Your Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. 112p., $13.99, Deep River Books.
The teachings of Jesus have the profound ability to be abundantly clear, and yet leave us with equally abundant questions. In Mark’s account, we are told to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. As his creation, we are called to give him our everything. Being a disciple means emulating what our teacher does: being like him, acting like him, and living like him. Yet despite the clarity of the teachings of Jesus, we consistently question its practical application in the many layers of our lives, neglecting actual obedience to his teaching.
Beautiful Interference uses storytelling to bring clarity to what God is calling us as his disciples to do as we live a life aiming to look like Jesus Christ. Hilarious stories and challenging biblical truths walk readers through each of the four areas with which we are called to love God respectively—heart, soul, mind, and strength. Exploring how we are to love others as God love us, this book is sure to benefit Christian readers from all age groups.
