All Christians know this song. Many grew up singing it. Even now, the familiar notes are no doubt sounding in your mind: "Jesus loves me...this I know...for the Bible tells me so..." But have you ever stopped and actually thought about the meaning behind those words? No other song more succinctly and plainly states the basic elements of faith than this simple hymn. Within those three words and the rest of the song are found the basic tenets of Christianity. We learn this as a child. But as we grow older, and the cares of the world begin to invade our days, we slowly forget. We allow the complications of life to supersede the simple fact of God's enduring grace. In Jesus Loves me, author Calvin Miller seeks to remind believers of the foundational and abiding truths contained in this children's hymn by exploring it verse by verse, including the little-known second and third stanzas. Using his own moving illustrations, as well as quotes from Scripture, well-known writers, and historical figures, Miller lovingly paints a picture of a God who loves us first and will love us last, even in the midst of our everyday grind. Problems at home? Yes, but Jesus loves you. Problems at work? Perhaps, but Jesus loves you. Problems with money, children, love? Yes, yes, yes...but Jesus loves you. A book to share with others and give with joy, Jesus Loves Me will deepen your understanding of God's love and inspire you to a deeper faith. Book jacket.
