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!

The book provides vignettes of God's love and how it relates to his other attributes.
Sproul notes that if we do not get God's love right, we will fail to have a sound understanding of Him. Scripture tells us, "God is love." All genuine love proceeds from God and is rooted in Him. In people, this love is found only in the regenerated.
Sproul is quick to acknowledge that anything we say about God will be said anthropomorphically. Whatever God's love is, it transcends our best efforts to describe it.
Sproul writes about what it means that God's love is holy. He investigates God's love as seen in the Old Testament and as shown through His Son. He explains the loyal love of God, God's faithful love, God's hatred, and God's unconditional love (not universalism).
He explains the relationship of God's love to His electing grace, as well as God's sovereignty. (He critiques the prescient view.) He discusses the order of salvation, and the Augustinian and semi-Pelagian views of election. He covers the threefold love of God: benevolence, beneficence, complacency.
He lastly discusses agape as is it to be shown by the believer, concentrating on 1 Corinthians 13.
This is pure R. C. Sproul. He writes with theological clarity and conviction. It is also pure Calvinism.
There is lots of theology in this book that some might find a little difficult. Nonetheless, this is a great explanation of God's love and how it relates to election. With Calvinism on the rise, this a good book for a new generation of believers.
I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
