The Rule of Love: How the Local Church Should Reflect God's Love and Authority

Product Description

Our culture’s view of love—with no boundaries or judgments or conditions—justifies whatever our hearts want and whatever our hearts feel, rejecting any authority that gets in the way. Falsely heralded as the only path to true self-expression and self-realization, this kind of love diminishes—if not completely redefines—the holy love of God revealed in the Bible.

In The Rule of Love, Jonathan Leeman directs us toward a biblical definition of love by answering critical questions: How is love commonly misunderstood? What is God’s love like and why is it offensive? And how does all of this relate to the church? In an age of consumerism, individualism, and tribalism, Leeman demonstrates how God showcases his holy love and authority to a watching world through the lives of his people living in true community with one another as the church.
