The theme of love is traced categorically throughout the Bible and includes an examination of God's own self-love, his love for creation, and his ultimate demonstration of love for humanity in his death on the cross. But this last element is not considered until Bray makes a thorough examination of what the Bible says about those, humans and angels, who rejected God's love. The cross overcomes this rejection, and it is in this respect that Bray combines both a biblical and systematic approach to a full-fledged theology rooted in the biblical concept of love.

Soaked in the depth and breadth of the Christian tradition, Gerald Bray brings a rich wisdom to his exceedingly accessible Systematic Theology. Freshly organizing his approach around love, Bray does not fall into cheap sentimentality, but instead carefully teases out the drama and story of divine love and how it should inform our understanding of countless areas of theology and life. Students and laity in particular will find this volume immensely helpful, and I heartily recommend it to all!
