others say about Nancy Stafford's
The Wonder of His Love
...One week into reading this book, I was so moved
that I began to give it away to others -- and the list
of intended recipients is growing. I am extremely selective....
Something that I commit to reading on a regular basis
must have immense value. I have a Master of Divinity
degree, spent a number of years in pastoral ministry,
and have reflected deeply on Scripture and spiritual
matters... The author manages to convey profound truths
with simplicity, elegance and beauty. It is rare to
find a book that says this much so powerfully... This
is truly a work of verbal art. The author gently leads
the reader on an inspired journey...I can speak from
personal experience: My heart is being penetrated anew
and my soul is being fed with the wonderful revelation
of God's lavish and amazing love. Very few books have
touched me both this quickly and this deeply... I truly
believe that this book has the makings of a classic.
Read it with anticipation! - Donna Brewington
“I was going to wait until I finished your book before emailing you but I couldn't wait. I am so enjoying including you and your book in my morning times with the Lord. What a gift of writing you have. And what a blessing the book is. I honestly don't often throw praise around so lavishly but your little chapters impacted my soul like nothing else has in a long time.” - Mark Fee
...We lost our son as a result of injuries he
sustained in Iraq. I am in the third chapter of the
book, and feeling so very overwhelmed with His love.
I was so focused on my pain this morning, I felt so
angry and hurting so deeply, I picked up the book and
God himself came to minister to me. Thank you for allowing
God to use you to minister to me. - C. M.
"The Testimonies come in more all the time. (Wonder of His Love) has evidently changed (one friend's) life to bring her out of a funk, and another friend was so depressed and defeated and skeptical that everyone gave up on her, and she has done a total turnaround since reading your book. See how God is using your book in multiple ways you don't even know about!" - G.M.
“ I am still praying (and crying) my way through "Wonder..." and loving every minute of it. You have expressed so many of my own thoughts and prayers in this book that I can't help but see His hand. I believe He is using this to usher me into a new level of growth. I am convinced that every woman needs to read this book...(it is written) in such a way that even non-Christians would read it if it was given to them. I just ordered 10 copies from ChristianBooks.com to give as gifts to other women and when those run out I'll be back to get more. I would like to try to keep one with me at all times ready to give as the opportunity arises. What a perfect evangelical tool!”
- Edie Moore
“Mother’s Day, my daughter sent me your wonderful book! As I began reading it, I could hear your voice coming through loud and clear as you told your personal stories in each chapter. I was touched—even moved to tears—so many times by your stories which often sounded so similar to my own or to the lives of close friends. I’ll be recommending your book highly...and think...that every woman (who reads it) will...know more fully how much our wonderful God loves her. Thank you.” - Kathie Quarles
There is no higher value in life than experiencing
the love of God, for everything else flows from that.
Nancy not only explains the way, but she also paints
a picture of the path for us to follow. I highly recommend
-John Townsend, PH.D, radio host, and co-author of
the best-selling Boundaries and How People
This book is quite extraordinary...(it) has been
like a spiritual booster shot; it has helped me come
to grips with some spiritual struggles that I have been
experiencing for some time. I am extremely grateful...for
this book..I cannot recommend (it) highly enough.
- Dr. William F. Hennessey, IV
A Devotional for Such a Time as This:
When I received a copy of Nancy Staffords first
devotional, I was eager to dive into it, my expectations
high after her previous Beauty by the Book. And
Ive no doubt that everyone who has heard her speak
at their church, college, association or corporation
will feel the same. But The Wonder of His Love should
be read one day at a time, rather than gulped down in
a sitting or two. It is meant to be sipped and savored,
rolled around on the tongue and in the heart and spirit.
Unlike the recent spate of self-help literature, the
eyes of this little book are fixed upon the face of
our Father. And every day, when it tears itself away,
it anxiously gathers together the best images it can
find so it can share with the reader what it has seen.
The original experiences, of course, belong exclusively
to Nancy. The best we can hope for is an echo or reflection.
But they are more than enough to urge our eyes heavenward
to find a vision of our own. Thats the power of
The Wonder of His Love. It makes us wonderfully jealous
to know Him much much better.
The Wonder of His Love humbly and gently instructs
anyone who is hungry for more of God. Page by page,
Nancy Stafford graciously invites us into and leads
us through her own quiet place. Day by day, she presents
us to the One she so dearly loves and who desperately
loves her. We dare to believe that He loves us the same
My only criticism is that the book ends after only
- Ron Brackin, ASSIST News Service Review
"... a truly beautiful book by a writer who is
fast becoming one of my favorites. Nancy Stafford has
managed to convey a sense of wonder about God that applies
to everyone. Reading her book brought me to a place
of thankfulness that God loves me, warts and all. And
how many warts I have! But that's the wonder of this
book. It helps me to see myself a little more as God
sees me and that's an incredible gift. Nancys
message of unconditional love and hope is something
everyone needs to read. This book will make a wonderful
gift to yourself and others who need to know God's love.
Nancy is a gifted writer...." - Carmen Leal
In 31 meditations, Stafford calls upon the beauty
of nature as well as the sacrifice of Christ to persuade
readers of God's inexhaustible love for them. Drawing
upon various writers, but especially inklings such as
C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, and Charles Williams, Stafford
makes her way through the glory and the transformative
power of God's love. Her writing style is dramatic and
showy, yet conversational. Readers will appreciate her
patient meditation on Christian freedom, and her perceptive
understanding of the gap that exists between knowing
one's sins are forgiven and being able to feel forgiven.
- Review in Publishers Weekly
THE WONDER OF HIS LOVE is like a warm embrace
from God Himself.
-Beth Moore, Author and Publisher
The Bible tells us "God is love," yet
very few people act like they understand it or live
like they believe it. The Wonder of His Love is an amazing
book that will help anyone discover God's awesome love
and radically change the way you live in his love. If
you think God is not on your side, is not doing everything
he can to show you his love..just read this book.
- Stephen Arterburn, Founder of New Life Ministries
and coauthor of Every Mans Battle
This is a cozy book you will want to have
at your bedside. Imagine how wonderful the day would
be if you woke to some whispered reminder of how dear
you were to the heart of God. Imagine how peaceful the
night would be if you went to sleep with a kiss of that
reminder on your forehead. These are the tender mercies
this soft-spoken book has to offer."
- Ken Gire, author of Moments with the Savior,
Windows of the Soul, The Divine Embrace
The Wonder of His Love deeply touched my
heart, energized my spirit with hope, and helped me
to fall in love with God all over again!
- Sunmee Choi, Total Living Network
You have nailed so many powerful and honest truths.
I commend you on getting to the point in tender, tough,
and revealing ways. Bravo!
