Product Description

From the Back Cover

What does LOVE look like?

Love is food and comfort to a ten-year-old amputee, abandoned on the side of the road
Love is a new roof for an elderly widow installed before the rainy season
Love is sharing hope with the homeless man on your street corner

Love is not just an ideal. Love is action. Love looks like something.
For over thirty years, Rolland and Heidi Baker have been living examples of the love of Jesus to the people of Mozambique. Here they share incredible true stories of how--when they learned to stop for the one in front of them--God unleashed His miraculous power to change lives.
Yet God isn't moving only in distant lands. He's moving right where you are. If you are willing, He can--and will--do amazing things when you learn that love is as simple as stopping for the one in front of you.
Because if you don't stop, who will? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Heidi and Rolland Baker, founders of Iris Ministries, served as missionaries in Indonesia and Hong Kong before following God's call in 1995 to Mozambique. In the face of overwhelming need, the Bakers now watch God provide miraculously for well over 10,000 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars The passion of sharing the Gospel 10 Aug. 2013
By rael - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In their book, Learning to Love, Heidi and Rolland Baker tag team to tell the excitement as well as the disappointments of Iris Ministries in Mozambique, Africa, where they feed and school thousands of children daily, plant endless churches in remote regions, drill water wells for village after village, and repair houses, all with their practical approach and unstoppable energy driven by their passion of stopping for the one. Together, they are on a mission to not be satisfied until everyone they encounter is saved and healed. Heaven is touching down in their remote spot on the planet as God visits the people of His choice.

The Bakers believe their journey has taken them to those who have fallen over the edge and are in need of rescuing and that their pursuit of the Kingdom has always taken them there, and so they boldly ask of their reader, "What is the edge that God is calling you to live in?" They encourage you to do what only you can do just because you are there. It's your calling and inheritance to bring His life and to share His cup of joy and suffering. God wants to wreck our hearts to change the way we feel and react to the situations that exist in our broken world where the Bakers believe our fundamental problem is not poverty and disease, but rather sin, and Jesus is the only answer for that problem

This book has compelled me to have more compassion toward the endless needs around me everyday and the desire to make a real difference in those needs. In essence, doing what Jesus would do. I would highly recommend this book for those who want to truly be like Jesus when He was here, meeting needs and setting people free, because ultimately sin has driven them to that place of need and that is what He came to free us from.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Chosen Books for review purposes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I had hoped 1 July 2013
By Kim Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was difficult to get through for me. It felt very pieced together and did not flow well at all. While the stories were wonderful, many of them were very similar and a lot of them seemed to be promoting their ministry rather than expanding on the title of the book. I didn't particularly like how they kept awkwardly switching authors and I had hoped they would include a little more application for people like myself, who are not career missionaries. I think the book should have been titled differently as it was not really all about "learning to love" and what love looks like, but more about Iris Ministries and the wonderful work they are doing in Mozambique and other areas of the world.

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

2.0 out of 5 stars good stories, but distracting format 17 Mar. 2013
By Callie Glorioso-Mays - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Learning to Love: Passion, Compassion and the Essence of the Gospel is written by Heidi and Rolland Baker, the founders of Iris Ministries. Heidi and Rolland have been missionaries for many years. They are currently based in Mozambique where their work includes building churches, digging wells, evangelizing and running children's homes.

Throughout the book, the Bakers share many stories of God's miraculous provisions - healing from physical ailments, food supplied for many, safety in dangerous situations and thousands of people meeting Jesus. It is clear that the Bakers take their work very seriously and that they care deeply for the people of Mozambique.

One theme that was seen throughout the book is the idea that "love looks like something". For instance, at one point Heidi writes that "love looks like a new roof before the rainy season" (p. 74). The Bakers are constantly looking for ways to make Jesus' love tangible to the people of Mozambique. This could be a challenge to many readers if they too decide that "love looks like something". To use an example from my personal life, today love looked like taking a homemade meal to someone could use a little help.

Although I appreciated the stories and the passion that the Bakers possess, I will say that this book was a struggle to get through. The stories were wonderful, but altogether the book felt disjointed. I wondered many times if it was simply a series of blog entries that had been pieced together into book format. It is divided into four parts, each with a different emphasis, but I doubt I would have picked up on that if it wasn't written out. The writing and "blog entry" format of the book were both distractions for me. I wish that these issues had been addressed before publishing so that I could give it a higher recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Things To Learn 1 Oct. 2013
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'll admit it straight out. I pre judged this woman and this book. I had seen a few things about her ministry and well, it just seemed fake. And superficial.

And then, I read this book. And realized, wow. She's just a person with a serious heart for God. And is she ever about just letting God use her and her life. There is definitely something to learn from Heidi and Rolland. And yes, they are just people and not perfect, but boy do they love Jesus. And because they love Jesus, they love others and they DO something about it.

I feel like I could already use a re-read of this book to really learn more about love and Jesus and how to make it real in your life - EVERY day. It doesn't have to be some country in Africa. The dramatic love of God can be lived out anywhere and this is a good reminder of that. Ok, I've talked myself into a re-read
