We "know" that God loves us, but if we were to be at all times consciously aware of this unconditional love , says the author, we would find our lives transformed. An entire shift in attitude would be demanded. Accepting God's unconditional love eliminates fear of judgement and hell, as well as eliminates emotional distance from God. At once challenging and liberating, this book leads to an inevitable change in our faith. The book revises our understanding of such matters as orininal sin, the kingdom of God, and Jesus' incarnation, death, and resurrection. It sheds new light on human fear, limitation, and suffering. The book also shows how God's unconditional love leads naturally to the search for social justice. The final chapter is a meditation on Christ's passion from the varying points of view of the people present.

This book is a profound reflection on God's unconditional love for humanity. Yes, we "know" that God loves us, but if we were to be at all times consciously aware of this unconditional love, to accept it, and to act upon it, says the author, we would find our lives transformed. An entire shift in attitude would be demanded. Accepting God's love is accepting God's total passion for humanity and thus Christ's full passion on the cross. Accepting that God loves us unconditionally eliminates fear of judgment and hell, eliminates emotional distance from God. This demands a new motivation for "being good", motivation that comes purely from our own integrity.
