His Revolutionary Love by Lynn Cowell (Book Review and Give Away!)

rev·o·lu·tion·ar·y [rev-uh-loo-shuh-ner-ee]

adjective, noun, plural

1) of, pertaining to, characterized by, or of the nature of revolution, or a sudden, complete, or marked change.

I am in those years. I see the girls, the guys and the drama. I’ve seen so many prematurely give their hearts away only to be broken again and again. I see the yearning in each girl – to be wanted, noticed, admired – to be valued. Little does she realize her value.

John Eldredge knew what he was talking about when he said, “Not every woman wants a battle to fight, but every woman yearns to be fought for… She wants to be more than noticed – she wants to be wanted. She wants to be pursued.”

Too often in this world I have seen so many not realize their value and they put themselves down and spend so much time comparing themselves with other people and some even give themselves away. But they don’t know that they are more. They don’t know that there is someone out there so madly and deeply in love with them.

He sees her and he sees beauty. He sees her and prizes her. He is enthralled by her. But she is so caught up in the world’s system that she doesn’t even know of this love. She doesn’t know about the love that changes everything. She doesn’t know the love that calls her and pursues her.

In His Revolutionary Love: Jesus’ Radical Pursuit of You Lynn Cowell tells of a love such as this. Oh, the thrills I got from reading this book! There is just something about the pursuit of love that excites you to the core! There are so many romance stories out there (and some are actually pretty good, I dare say it.) But nothing will thrill you more than reading this book! Lynn, I believe has truly captured the heart of the subject.

I was watching the Lake House the other night and just found myself going “wow, he waited for her all those years. He waited just to see her! He knew that she was all he wanted!” His pursuit (I will admit) made my heart melt. What girl does not want to be pursued like that? And who, while watching this movie, would not put themselves in Dr. Kate Forster’s (played by Sandra Bullock) place. We have dreaming hearts. We yearn for that kind of pursuit! Reading this book, you won’t have to imagine anymore, because you are that person being pursued. You will begin to see how the love the Jesus offers is exactly what you have been yearning for all of your life. This love is truly revolutionary. It changes everything.

There are three parts to this book. They are:

1)His Heart Toward Me

2) His Path for Me

3) His Hopes for Me

Are you looking for something more? Have you found yourself empty or with a longing in your heart that is not filled? Only the Love of God can fill that place in you. Jesus is in radical pursuit of you.

I highly recommend reading this book, ladies! It really will change your life. This love is so amazing. And it never ends. It never fails.

Lynn Cowell has a heart that is so passionate about God and for girls and women to understand in share in the radical love that He has for us. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and three teens and is a speaker with Proverbs 31 ministries. You can visit Lynn’s website by clicking here.

    Brittany, thank you so much for your heart to see young girls find True Love. I have seen in over 10 years of mentoring teens that this truth empowers girls with confidence leading to wise choices.

    Thank you in advance to every one who helps spread the word of “His Revolutionary Love”. Let’s start a radical change in the next generation!

    I am a teacher living in Guam and have 2 different Bible studies w/ teenage girls…one with Junior High girls and one with High School girls. About half of the girls are from unsaved families. I’d love to be able to do this study with them!

    I am a mom of a teen girl & I’m planning a book study with this book including a number of other teen girls in our community who are often home alone throughout the summer as both parents are working. I see their F.B. posts & pictures and am very aware that they are looking for attention. I would love to offer this book to one of them for our study.
