The Love Revolution

4.03 of 5 stars 4.03  ·  rating details  ·  407 ratings  ·  58 reviews
Joyce Meyer is not satisfied with the status quo. She believes that we each need to become a revolutionary and practice love every day. And if Joyce has her way, the revolution will spread - person by person, house by house, town by town, until the old culture of selfishness and greed gives way to a new culture of concern for others.

The book is a revolutionaries' manual,

I was not a fan of this book. This was the first book I read by Joyce Meyer and I won it in a GoodReads giveaway.

I'm not sure how you give a bad review to a Christian themed book...I've read a lot of Christian non fiction before and I have liked all the books I've read. Until now.

This book discusses a Love Revolution. Joyce describes the issues in the world today with hunger, child prostitution, the poor and needy, those that abuse alcohol and drugs, etc. She calls Christians to rise up and sh

Love isn't just something you feel, it's something you do. Loving is contagious just like hate. Surrounding yourself with loving people will enrich your life. At the same time, surrounding yourself with people who hate can be can lead you on a downward spiral. Each individual has the opportunity to make this life better. Everyday we are faced with obstacles and some of us take that opportunity and turn it into something great. Others, turn it into something dreadful. The smallest gesture can bri ...more

I had such high hopes for this book. I was so excited when I won it in the goodreads giveaway. I've studied International Development and have always believed that each person must take action to help contribute in solving overwhelming problems related to poverty among others.

I apologize in advance to the author and those that enjoyed this book but to gloss over my review on the fear of hurting the author's feelings would be disingenuous and serve no purpose. The funny thing is I agree fundamen

The Love Revolution is an excellent Scripture-based, God-focused book. If you questioned her past theology, I urge you to give this book a chance. If you liked her past books, definitely get this one as well!

I'd summarize this book's message as being 'the fulfillment of our faith in Christ is following his example (and showing our appreciation for the mercy he has shown us) by showing that love and mercy to others.' She teaches a Biblical, balanced view of how to do life.

The book is written in a

I feel so blessed to have won this book through the First Reads program! My mom has always been a Joyce Meyer fan, but this is the first book I have read of her collection. I truly enjoyed this book from cover to cover.

Though an easy read, I took my time with this one because there was so much to reflect on. The way The Love Revolution is written in segments makes it easy to leave off and pick up pretty much at any point. I can even see this book being used as a devotional for church groups or

This is my favorite Joyce Meyer book by far. It's on my top for all time favorite Christian books. First of all, the topic is powerful - a love revolution. A Love Revolution is EXACTLY what our society needs! We need to truly revolutionize the way we love and the way we treat people. I love this book because it gives so many examples of what love LOOKS like.Many times we want to show love, we want to be better at loving more, but are not sure how to practically make that happen. What does this k ...more

Won this book through the Firstreads program and I'm so happy I did. What a wonderful and inspirational book. Not in the least bit preachy, Meyer (and several guest writers) talks about the importance of doing everything with love. The book discusses how critical it is that we "refuse to do nothing" by stepping outside of our comfort zone to help others the way God would wish, whether they are strangers, enemies, or loved ones.

She talks about how each thing we do with love, although we may view

what a great book. It talks about making a revolution in our lives and choose to love people and take a decision to make a difference to them. First, some shocking statistics about the amounts and percentages of the most violent and dreadful crimes and famines all over the world, especially in poor countries. That book is full of encouragement for the missionary work. Then the author shares with valuable ideas to share the love revolution to people in our everyday life.

Really an amazing book.

I was very pleased that such a popular author and speaker wrote a book on the importance of Christians being inolved in social justice. Unfortunately, though, her presentation struck me as cheesy and made it hard to swallow even though I agreed with almost everything she said. I wish it was better written as I would love to be able to recommend it to my friends. Some of her books are really good, but this one just didn't do it for me.
Nikki DuBose
I think that this book does not receive as much praise and attention as it deserves. Love is powerful, and can heal the world, if given in even the smallest doses, in the tiniest of ways. Joyce Meyer provides practical and humble advice on how to show love in our every day lives. This is a book that can be read more than once, studied, and applied in countless ways. I love how she also encourages readers to contribute their creative ways to add love to the world by writing in to the website.

Good message, but got to be too much on the Jesusy side for my liking.

audio book. Joyce Meyer delivers a well-needed book on love and how to make a revolution in our society to do and care for others as Jesus has commanded us to do. She also shares surreal stories when she tried to help others by paying for something, offering money or other gifts and how people refused them. She felt as if she did something bad, but knew it was from God to give to them in the first place. She wants to also share that we need to help others in third-world countries and ministry ev ...more

What's the difference between a revival and a revolution? Joyce Meyer digs deep into this question in this book. She reveals her belief that the Christian church, mainly the Christian church in the United States, is losing members because it needs a radical change. In her opinion, which she offers with well-researched statistics and examples, the church has lost its focus on its foundation of love. Jesus' basic teachings of love, unselfishness, patience, generosity, kindness, and forgiveness hav ...more

A "Call to Action"

In The Love Revolution Joyce Meyer has presented us with a "Call to Action." It is a challenge we should not resist. This is an excellent book. I would, however, have preferred it had been written totally by Joyce Meyer, without all the guest authors. Joyce Meyer is a terrific author, as I have read other books by her.

This was the first book I read by Joyce Meyer. For me, it was a very interesting book with a great concept. First of all, the topic is powerful - a love revolution. A Love Revolution is EXACTLY what our society needs! I feel as though the world does need to love each other. In the fashion that Joyce Meyer has proposed because it would be a peaceful place. I love this book because it gives so many examples of what love looks like. Sometimes i want to show love, i want to be better at loving more, ...more

Nothing is more important than a true understanding of the depth of God's love for us, and in gaining a clear understanding of that depth, we are able to extend it to a broken and hurting world. What a gift!

As a practical Minister, Joyce separates religiosity from christianity with sound example and easy to understand counsel. In the end, there are these three things, Faith, Hope and Love and the greatest of these is LOVE! We can speak in the tongues of angels, we can have all knowledge, we can

This was a pretty good book - but I feel like some of it should be put into an Advanced section for the veteran Love Revolutionary. I mean, she's talking about overseas missions and rescuing folks from slums and child prostitution. I don't even talk to my neighbors every day.

So I'm gonna have to start with baby steps - not despising the day of small beginnings. And I'm gonna try and not feel guilty about not saving the world on a daily basis - b/c who knows? Maybe my small steps will yield big

I wasn’t quite ready for this one... I expected another self-help audio. Instead this book extends beyond the church, to a world full of people in need of rescuing. Throughout the audio Meyer quotes scripture, reminding listeners of Jesus’ desire for peace and a Christian’s responsibility for helping others. In a day and age of political turmoil, extremist bombers, and economical hardship, this audio reminds Christians not to watch man or the dollar, but to keep their eyes on God and follow thro ...more

This book has enorous potential but it missed the mark on many levels. Joyce Meyer seems ambivalent about the defintion of love, describing it too often as giving stuff we already own to others or helping the needy. I have heard her talk about this subject and know she could written a much better book if she had clearly defined her objective and then worked through the book step by step. She seems to write the book without carefully outlining her chapters, something I have never seen her do.

This book is your usual Joyce Meyer type. I was expecting more. When you talk about revolution it should be a revolution! I felt like I've already read everything in this book. It's almost as if she wrote this book to get the readers to give money to her ministry. It was mostly about giving, giving, giving. Showing love is more than just money. I would rather Meyer write a truly, earth-shattering book every few years than to release all these books every year that all sound alike.
Mare
As Joyce would say this book was "a word in due season" for me. It really spoke to my heart and reminded me that in order to see change in the world we need to pay attention to how we treat the people around us.

I received a few spiritual revelations throughout the course of the book that have caused me to pause and take an inventory of my own human selfishness. I'm thankful for a fresh perspective on varying areas of life.

We can all make a difference! One random act of kindness at a time. Plenty to ponder in this reading . Hard to maintain a Pharisee status in your walk if your honest with yourself while
reading this text aloud to a loved one, or more. I read this aloud to my 86 year old mother in-law and soon to be 99 year old aunt. They told me to give it a 5 star rating.
Brenda
I loved this book. It seems like a lot of young people today are turned off by all of the "Religion". We need to focus more on what Jesus saud to do,instead of always preaching about what we can't do. There are some great stories, atatistics, and ideas in this book for showing love to others that we would all do well to pay attention to.
Liz
- It felt like the whole point of the book was to tell me how better the author was than myself. Some of the stories were interesting, and it did get me to think about giving to charity, so I suppose it did part of its job. Still, didn't like it.
- Arrived last week. Started it Tuesday.
- Waiting for it to arrive in the mail.
Elzbeth
It's a good book. Our world is in need of a revolution: a love revolution. We cannot allow ourselves to be an apathetic generation. We must be the difference we want to see in the world. Not only does this book point out what we could and should be doing, it gives practical advice to get it done.

People spend so much time whining and complaining about their petty problems when there's a world of starving children and abused women who deserve our time and attention instead. Hunger, infant mortality, sex trafficking, aids... as Joyce points out, there's a world in need of a love revolution.
Hailey Michele
This book really opened my eyes to many of the things we as Christians, the body of Christ, should be doing! Love should be put into action. We should love without limitations, and reach out to all people.
Brenda at MyShelf
Meyer took this one very serious. Her goal is to reach the church as a whole, and the world. LOVE REVOLUTION didn't make the best seller list which is too bad because the message is priceless.

Its a book worth reading..

I listened to the audio a couple years ago....
Brandi
I love this book, because it reenforces what has already been on my heart. Also, she helps with the overwhelming feeling by pointing out that even though you can't help everyone, by helping one person, you have helped someone. That is better than helping no one.
Cindy
She comes on a bit strong. While I understand the need for action, she seems convinced that we can figure things out on our own & take action. Too many people already think this is the way to live. It doesn't leave a lot of room for grace.
