Story Behind the Book
"Writing "Redeeming Love "was a form of worship for me. Through it, I was able to thank God for loving me even when I was defiant, rebellious, contemptuous of what I thought being a Christian meant, and afraid to give my heart away. I had wanted to be my own god and have control of my life the way Eve did in the Garden of Eden. Now I know to be loved by Christ is the ultimate joy and fulfillment. Everything in "Redeeming Love "was a gift from the Lord: plot, characters, theme. None of it is mine to claim.
