Overview

A down-to-earth, practical reflection on the nature of God’ s love, eloquently written by Fr. Peter Cameron. Drawing heavily on Sacred Scripture and the transforming encounters with Jesus Christ recorded in the Gospels, Fr. Cameron seeks to make God’ s love as real, concrete, and accessible to his readers’ lives as possible. He emphasizes how God constantly searches for us and takes the initiative in loving us—how he woos us into happiness with him.

Made for Love, Loved by God will also address common misconceptions about God’ s love as well as the obstacles that prevent us from letting God love us. After reading this book, the reader will feel closer to God by being shown a way to be closer to God. It will imbue the reader with the certainty of the psalmist: “ The Lord delights in those who wait for his love” (Psalm 147:11).
