The God who is Love rejoices greatly when His people walk with Him in Truth. This book provides the essentials of the Christian life in a way that is theologically rich and and inspired by the discipleship teachings of past giants of the faith. It provides a solid theological understanding of the character of God, His purposes and desires for His people. It provides an occasion for inner transformation by teaching, asking questions and providing spiritual exercises that will allow God’s Spirit to envelope the reader. It teaches spiritual disciplines that lead to Godly habits and enhance the quality of one's soul-life with God. It also seeks to help the reader to move out into the world as one sent by God to testify to the joyous grace of the God who is Love.
This book and integrated study guide was developed with several groups of research participants who contributed to its refinement. It is ideal for individual study or for small groups.

"Love's Greatest Joy" provides a solid theological grounding and stimulates the reader to a greater love for God. The tenets of our faith are clearly explained, provoking questions are asked, and life-transforming spiritual exercises are included. The book is an essential discipleship tool and a 'must read' for anyone desiring to grow near to God (Hugh McIntosh, Senior Biblical Counsellor,www.menofvalour.org) On February 16, 2012 I heard Les' presentation of his doctoral thesis for his Doctor of Ministry at Tyndale Seminary in Toronto. Les' book, Love's Greatest Joy, is an addendum to his thesis. The field testing of the book (part of the thesis) demonstrated that 91% of readers were hugely impacted by the book in their motivation to live for God. This engaging and clearly-written discipleship book fills in all the gaps in our theological understanding.
Thought provoking, especially in areas I really didn't understand before. As a fairly new Christian it was sometimes beyond my comprehension but in talking with Les I came to understand his point. The prayer practice was of great benefit to me. I would recommend it for newer believers.
