Review – Love Like That by Dr. Less Parrot

Loving Like Jesus Just Got Doable

In this inspiring, utterly practical new book, #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr. Les Parrott writes a viable prescription for becoming more loving with family, friends, coworkers, and even strangers. In his trademark approachable style, Dr. Parrott takes the latest findings from psychology and sociology and blends them with biblical teaching to reveal five transformative ways of relating to people demonstrated by Jesus himself: being mindful, approachable, grace-filled, bold, and self-giving. With questions to ponder, self-assessments, and insightful quotations, Love Like That will revolutionize every relationship in your life-especially the ones that matter most.

Review

I love learning about different ways to improve our relationships. I believe we can always strive and do a little effort to live peacefully with each other, and this book gives exactly that, a set of tools useful to improve any kind of relationships in your life.

After a short introduction Parrot develop 5 different ways Jesus showed love to others, according to him:

When you love like Jesus,

  • you become more midfull – less detached
  • you become more approachable – less exclusive
  • you become more grace-full – less judgemental
  • you become more bold – less fearful
  • you become more self-giving – less self-absorbed

Each chapter develops these ideas individually and at the end there are different questions “to ponder” and make the necessary changes. There are also different graphics and exercises through each chapter to help you understand where you are in your relationships.

Conclusion

With the experience you can expect from Dr. Parrot and accesible language, Love Like That is a great resource for you to read by yourself or even with a group of friend or family.
