About-

Aspects of Love is a book for those
- worn out by cynicism
- fatigued by sensory assault
- wearied by the drive to experience new thrills
- made fragile by the trivial
- sickened by a lack of spiritual depth


In a world that longs for intimacy, this book casts a long ray of hope. J. Barrie Shepherd offers the loving gift of gentle, unhurried reflection on 1 Corinthians 13. He frames his thoughtful reflections in three parts: "The Necessity of Love," "The Qualities of Love," and "The Endurance of Love."
Writing with the poet's sensitivity toward language and rhythm, Shepherd uses verses of scripture from 1 Corinthians 13 to examine facets of love, including communication, irritability, kindness, jealousy, humility, forgiveness happiness, and hope. He draws from the works of Golda Meir, Paul Tournier, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Winston Churchhill and closes each chapter with a prayer.

God can dazzle us with the magnificance of the universe. But the heart of the universe reveals its glory in the compassion, grace, and love that come to us when we need it most, telling us, ... "You matter." --J. Barrie Shepherd
