Assurance of God's Personal Love for Us

The startling truth about the love of God has lost its potency. It is not a passionless, theological idea. It is a real love that feels and even suffers. Whether you grew up in a Christian home and have forgotten this essential truth, or you never knew it in the first place, we all need to be reminded--and assured--that God's love is real and personal.

The Reckless Love of God is about pulling readers in close and asking if they have really considered what it means to say, "Jesus loves you."

Nothing changes lives and grows the church faster, more effectively, and more thoroughly than being captivated by this reality. But the love of Jesus is not just a means to another end. Receiving the love of Jesus is the end itself.

Includes end-of-chapter questions for individual or group use.
