On Loving God is first a touching description of God's love for us as unmistakenly demonstrated in the death of His Son. Second, it is a call for us to joyfully respond to God like the child who runs and embraces her father whose love is sure. As St. Bernard writes, "They love all the more because they know themselves to be loved so exceedingly."

I can't even to begin to guess how our ancient figures of the faith knew God so well. Bernard, rightly called St Bernard, takes down a journey of relishing in God's lavish love for us and logically and rationally shows us why God deserves oir love in return. It makes you want to bow down and worship with all your heart and soul.
There are too many pearls and priceless jewels to be grasped at in one reading, each one a delicacy to be savored, but hastily comes another. When I knew Him not, I had sought Him in another. As I find Him out, I find I need no other.
Every truly seeking Christian may benefit from this book. No fluff, just good and simple stuff that any reader can understand whether you know the bible or not.
