It's been awhile since I've read this book, but it's one of the rare ones that I actually kept. While I very much like studying spirituality, I tend to stay far away from religions and organizations of the sort. But - that doesn't mean I don't look there for sources of inspiration.

In this book, it doesn't go into Christianity the religion, it goes into Christ, the person. Not the regurgitated, manipulated, piece of poo that gets spoon fed to people...but the actual message that Christ was tryin

For anyone who wants to understand what is meant by the practice of "Christ consciousness." This book is about spirituality, not religion.

Love Without Conditions will guide the reader to self-forgiveness and insire you to make the necessary changes to make your life and those around you much better. Paul Ferrini a poet, mystic, and visionary. A must read for those who are seeking inner wisdom and strength through Jesus and his ministry.

The author makes some good points on love and forgiveness, but the book is more geared toward those interested in New Age rather than Christianity.

Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross says she studies this book like the Bible. I scoffed at that for many reasons before I read it. Now I totally agree with her. I will revisit this book regularly. It is how I long to love people and life.

I love this book, it teaches that forgiveness of self first, and being fully present in the moment is the key that will connect you the kingdom of heaven within you.

I had this book recommended to me as research for a novel I was writing at the time. To be frank, it turned me off right from the start. The author chose to write the book in the first person as if Jesus himself were speaking to the reader. To me it came off as a pathetic attempt to lend additional support to the author’s thesis. No this is not Jesus speaking to you. He did not bless this author with some divine words or inspiration. It is an author spouting his theory on life hoping you will bu ...more

I was a little skeptical about what Paul was going to explain in his book. The title, "Reflections of the Christ Mind" kind of made me think, oh no, another preaching lesson in love, but I was overwhelmed of how he brings you into the book and helps you understand just how powerful Love really is.

I highly recommend reading this book and not only that but keeping it with you wherever you are. Pull it out and read a chapter or two and watch how your attitude and passion for being that loving pers

This book was recommended to me from a dear friend. I gave it the benefit of a doubt and although it started off ok, in the end I count Finnish the book. To me it gave the taste of an author trying to use another form of psychological manipulation in order to try and entice the reader towards his belief. The author does try to make it seem as if it's generalized, but it's obvious. I enjoy learning about different religion, but what I don't like is when they try to trick in into joining theirs.

This book is small but powerful. It is about forgiving, unconditional love, and mostly, the book is about learning to forgive yourself and in so doing, forgiving and loving others. My explanation is to simple. A must read book for spiritual growth.

This book has finally found me and it is my daily bible. It is so helpful for this student of Unconditional Love in learning how to love another as I love myself every day.

This book was so good I read it way too fast. This is one that needs to be savored, so I'm going to have to reread it slowly and let it settle in my head. The point of view took some getting used to, it's written as though it is Christ speaking. The book is spiritual, but certainly doesn't endorse any organized religion, suggesting they all separate, rather than unite people.

“Looking for unconditional love in a world of conditions must inevitably fail. Since all your brothers and sisters are acting out of shame-based patterns, they cannot offer you the love you know that you deserve, nor can you offer it to them. The best that you can do is raise each other’s awareness of the love that is necessary and begin taking responsibility for giving it to yourself.” 5 likes
