Man’s search for the meaning of life starts and ends with agape love. This is what David A. Zaukelies asserts as he fathoms the ultimate commandment of loving one another as instructed by Christ. In his book, Lord, What Would You Have Me To Do In My Life?, Zaukelies discusses how the Great Commandments, Scripture, and the purpose of man’s existence basically sum up to one divine directive.
Zaukelies inevitably explores the expanse of agape love as he explains the path to man’s salvation. His discussion on the Great Commandments and their connection to sin has brought out many seemingly contradictory Biblical passages, the most prominent argument being that of whether salvation is attained through God’s grace or through man’s attempt to earn salvation through works.
The book quotes exclusively from the New Testament of the King James Version with some Old Testament references. Dr. Zaukelies also includes a scientific addendum incorporating his own calculations that proves God is the only force that could have created life on earth as well as the universe.
Many believers of Jesus want to know what God wants them to do. The Bible tells them what they should do. The book explains this by having the needed Bible verses collected all together with comments. This is done with each related topic. Christ explained the main topic by pointing out the two great commandments, and adding another great commandment.
Succinct and straight to the point, Lord, What Would You Have Me To Do In My Life? illumines on one of life’s most difficult questions, at the same time, it affirms that the Old and New Testaments are complementary halves of the Bible that teach the same principles, which is to do God’s will expressed as his commandments. And, as can be inferred from Dr. Zaukelies’ contention, the way of doing so would be to demonstrate Godly love towards others and oneself. For more information, log on to Xlibris.com.
