Love or die: Christ's Wake-up Call to the Church (Aime ou meurs)
Christ calls the Church to wake up
The first part of this book examines the stern rebuke that Jesus Christ addresses to his Church: “. may a person or a church teach sound doctrine, be faithful to the gospel, walk righteously, and work zealously, but still could displease Christ because it lacks love.
Part 2 presents practical ways to cultivate LOVE in the local Church: Study, Pray, Teach, Serve as an Example, Preserve and Exercise Love.
This book includes a study guide which makes it an exceptional tool for classes and small groups.
