Book Review: The Purpose of Passion by Kurt Bruner & Jim Ware

The Purpose of Passion by Kurt Bruner and Jim Ware is a great book reviewing Dante’s  La Vita Nuova, and comparing the book to what the Bible teaches us, along with real-life examples to help solidify the teachings.  The book also helps to reflect on the stage of love the reader is in at the moment, and how we can grow the love into what God wants love to be. 

 The book is divided up into three sections; Love Kindled, Love Gone Astray and Love Fulfilled. After each chapter, there is a summary about love that made me laugh at times, and other times, it made me contemplate a little more into the love that I am experiencing.

The book was a quick read, but a very deep, thoughtful book.  This book is something I could see reading more than once to get the full effect and learn as much as I can from it.  Also, The Purpose of Passion has made me want to read La Vita Nuova  and reflect on it as well. 

I received this book free from Tyndale House Publishers as part of their Blogger Review program.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
