R. C. Sproul in his new book, “God's Love” part of the Classic Theology series published by David C. Cook shows us How the Infinite God Cares for His Children.
From the Back Cover: Encounter a God who not only loves, but is love.
Love has come to mean many things. It’s used to describe emotions. It’s the glue for relationships. It frames countless stories.
And the greatest of these stories opens before time began and echoes throughout eternity. It’s the story of God’s unrelenting, overwhelming love for His people. Yet the truth of love is even more majestic, more staggering, and more extraordinary than we can understand: God doesn’t just love us. He is love.
Renowned theologian and teacher Dr.R.C. Sproul takes a remarkable look at this most profound truth. God’s Love delves deep into Scripture to explore this dynamic attribute of God, which finds its ultimate expression in His Son. Dr. Sproul also examines seeming paradoxes of God, such as a loving God and divine hate, and how love coexists with His sovereignty. Practical, insightful, and revolutionary, God’s Love compels and calls us to reflect His nature of unconditional love.
What exactly is love? Some of us would describe it as an emotion: we love chocolate cake or going to the movies. Paul tells us that, “here abides Faith, Hope and Love and the greatest of these is Love.” Love is a person. God is Love. Therefore Love is God. If you really want to come to a firm understanding of God’s Love and the power of that Love then you really need to read, “God’s Love”. In nine chapters Dr. Sproul shows us love and hate in God, Agape Love and others to get the true meaning across. Obviously Dr. Sproul does a much more magnificent job in explaining which is one of the reasons why you need to have this book. “God’s Love” is a must have book. It is a must have for you because you will read it once, stash it on your bookshelf and come back to it again and again for refreshing. It is a must have for your friends and family so that they can do the exact same thing. We all need to learn and understand and who better than Dr. Sproul to help us with that understanding. I recommend this book highly!
