Overview

“God's unconditional love.” Sounds nice, but is it enough? Is there more to God's love? Describing unconditional love as detached “blanket acceptance” and “benign affirmation,” David Powlison challenges our common assumption about the nature of God's love. Although wonderfully accepting, divine love is also intrusive, intimate, personal, and active. Instead of simply loving us as we are, God loves us enough to change us. Powlison acknowledges four underlying truths of unconditional love, offers biblical improvements on the idea, and urges us to see God's love for what it really is—better than unconditional.
