There are several reasons that prompted me to start the year off with Bryant's book.

1. The name. I typically enjoy books that have obscure titles.

I read this book in my spring 2008 growth group. It's a very easy and fun read -- Bryant is not a wordsmith, but rather one of the pastors at a truly multicultural church in Los Angeles.

Recommends it for: everyone
Eric Bryant is one of the pastors at Mosaic in LA under Erwin McManus (http://www.mosaic.org and http://www.erwinmcmanus.com). He does an excellent job of using personal experiences and humor in telling us as Christians that we are not doing a very good job of loving others as we are commanded by Jesus, but it is possible if we are willing to try.

Eric Bryant is not only a talented author, but also a great pastor. I recently heard him speak at Mosaic church and he did a really good job.
