Speaker and author, Seeker Small Groups
"The Lost Commandment provides a compelling vision for transforming the church and reaching the world by learning how to delight in the sacrificial, reconciling love of Christ and letting it flow through us into the lives of every person we meet. A book that every Christian should read, study, and joyfully live out in daily life."
President, Peacemaker Ministries and author of The Peacemaker
"In Knowing God, J. I. Packer distinguished knowing about God from knowing God personally; thousands were blessed by his words. In The Lost Commandment, Dave Greber distinguishes the Golden Rule from the 'new commandment' Jesus gave his followers; thousands will be blessed by his words. The Lost Commandment is a great book--valuable for new Christians, yet more than a refresher course for veterans in the faith."

"My small group loved studying this convicting, insightful, practical, and thought-provoking book. The Lost Commandment helped us deepen our walk with Christ by showing us how to live out Jesus' command to love one another as he has loved us."
Small group leader
“Every once in a while there is a book whose message is so powerful, it touches your soul to the core. For me, this book is it. The words of Christ seem simple enough, but the message speaks volumes about how to live as his follower. Dave Greber, an attorney and Bible teacher, uses scripture, personal stories, and common sense to show how we can follow Christ in our everyday lives.
Greber's text describes seven essential aspects of living as Christ taught: joy, relationship, mission, humility, obedience, forgiveness, and service. The appendix contains additional scriptures focusing on the "lost commandment" as well as instructions on how to create a reading plan for studying the Bible. Greber's website at davegreber.com has an eleven-page study guide, directions for an eight-week study, and chapter questions. This is a perfect book for discussion by groups of teens and adults.”
