As usual, Phil Ryken hides his deep scholarship behind readable prose. But the footnotes reveal that he draws on some of the most penetrating scholarly treatments of St Paul's text. He combines all that with pastoral experience and insight. The result is a masterful, accessible exposition of this great chapter. --Tim Keller
Jesus said, 'By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.' But what does it mean to love others? By looking at the love of Jesus in the light of I Corinthians 13, Phil Ryken gives us the biblical answer. 'Loving the Way Jesus Loves' is surely one of the most heart searching books I have ever read. This book is must-reading for all who want to grow in Christian love. --Jerry Bridges
There are many expositions of 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter, but not many where at every point the preacher shows how God's love in Christ Jesus is the very best exposition and truest embodiment of love. Unpacking the love chapter through this prism, Phil Ryken lends great clarity to Paul's meditation on love and shows how such love drives us back to renewed adoration of Christ. Reflecting on how Christ, by his life and death, makes 1 Corinthians 13 leap from the page drives home the frequent lovelessness of our own lives, strips bare all notions of love that are little more than sentimental twaddle, and provides a concrete robustness to love that is part and parcel of trusting and following Christ. --D. A. Carson

You will come away from his book softened, mellowed, calmed, entranced, even inspired, and all by an eloquently stunning exposition of love. I found myself humming simple choruses of love and worship back to Jesus while reading this. IVP are to be congratulated on possibly their most attractive title to date in format, font, styling and artwork. Heart searching but truly faith affirming and a rare title that will thrill you with all that Christ means! A top class pursuit of love!
However, Phil Ryken's approach of taking a detailed look at the individual verses of
1 Corinthians 13 and at the same time laying this besides various Gospel accounts of
Jesus, the supreme example of love in action, works very well.
Am still working through the book, which incidentally has a useful section to help with
group discussion, but already there has been excellent comment by Ryken and much to
challenge our own frequent inadequacies in loving the way Jesus loves.
I like anything from the IVP stable for solid, challenging teaching.
This book has certainly not failed to deliver.
It helpfully takes incidents in Jesus' life, death, resurrection & shows how his love is perfectly patient, kind, etc. I thoroughly recommend this book to everyone! It's easy to read, & each chapter also has study questions at the end which can be used for a group bible study. It's been the best thing we've done recently at our ladies' bible study.
