Bestselling author Andrew M. Greeley and his sister Doctor Mary G. Durkin present an inspirational volume celebrating the greatest of all virtues: love.

The ability to love wisely and well is the most important trait parents can pass on to their children. As we grow, the longing to share this love as well as receive it in turn remains throughout our lives. But where does this love come from?

Love emerged in humankind not as a result of our being human, but as the supreme gift from one who loved us before we were even created: God. As a result of this one common bond that unites all races and creeds, the first family emerged, which lead to the creation of communities, civilizations, and all of the accomplishments therein--for nothing is impossible when love is involved.

Through a grand treasury of essays, poems, and stories, Andrew M. Greeley and Doctor Mary G. Durkin portray the limitlessness of the human spirit's capacity to care for one another as a result of the greatest virtue ever bestowed upon members of all nations and faiths: love.
