In Agape Love, Sir John Templeton explores the varied concepts of love set forth in Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Confucianism, Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Native American spirituality through passages from sacred texts and noting common threads. His commentaries are brief, yet insightful. At first, I was leery of this book. Noting the publisher, I wondered if it might be a vanity offering. But I have enjoyed reading it many times. Its message is simple, yet it has profound implications on the interrelatedness of all spiritual endeavors.
