Open are the gifts of God, gifts of love to mind and sense; Hidden is love's agony, love's endeavour, love's expense.'These words conclude one of the most influential and best-loved spiritual books of the twentieth century.Nearly forty years after its first publication, Love's Endeavour, Love's Expense remains transforming and compelling.

Review quote

'A masterpiece ... Nobody reading this book could doubt for a moment that it is the product of personal experience of a most costly and rewarding kind. On every page the book is alive with passion. We are given no theories but only truths which have been lived through and made the author's own. Vanstone gives us an analysis of human love and leads us thereby to an apprehension of God's love.' -- H.A. Williamsshow more
