Publisher's Description

God is love. Love one another. We teach these to children and new Christians, but what exactly do we mean (and do they hear) by love? Our culture offers a multitude of understandings and experiences through which the meaning of love can be filtered. We in the church can become sloppy in our proclamation and embodiment of love as a result of those filterings, unless we remain grounded in the Biblical moorings of love revealed in the narratives of both the Old and New Testaments.The Greatest of These offers an extended exploration of love 's qualities in scripture. Each of the six chapters will begin with a single page introduction to the chapter theme. The bulk of each chapter will then consist of six individual readings (2.5 to 3 pages each) that reflect on a Biblical passage related to the chapter 's theme on love. The book will be written for use by individuals or groups, and a leaders guide will be provided for six suggested sessions. TABLE OF CONTENTS Using this BookChapter One Love as Gift Chapter Two Love as Invitation Chapter Three Love as Loyalty Chapter Four Love as Ethic Chapter Five Love as Compassion Chapter Six Love as Wonder Appendix: Leader 's Guide The leader 's guide will provide a basic template that can be used for each session along with specific suggestions for six sessions to plug into the template in order to explore each of the book 's chapters.
