Book Review: Love is a Flame Compiled by James Stuart Bell

August 1, 2010

This is a review of Love is a Flame Compiled by James Stuart Bell. Love is a Flame is  a collection of stories about love renewed.  It reads a bit like Chicken Soup for the Soul books; however each story is about a different struggling marriage and how Christ restored it.  At the end of each story, James Stuart Bell shares some words of wisdom and encouragement pertaining to the particular struggles.  People who are going through their own marital struggles could especially benefit from reading these stories of redemption, love and hope.

I did not find this book to be extremely substantive or deep.  (I generally prefer the self-help style over the Chicken Soup style.)  But I did find it enjoyable to read about God’s restorative hand in struggling lives and marriages.

I think that my mom will love this book, so I intend to pass it on to her.

Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for providing me a complementary copy in exchange for an honest book review!
