How Do You Explain a Love That Has No Explanation? What will happen if you let it touch your heart? God loves you not because you are flawless, not because you are a perfect person, but just because you are. In Love Beyond Reason, John Ortberg reveals the God youve longed to encounter: a Father head-over-heels in love with you, his child, and intensely committed to your highest joy. Ortberg takes you to the very core of Gods being to discover a burning, passionate love that gives, and gives, and gives. He explores the life-changing ways this love has expressed itself through Jesus. And he shows how you, like Jesus, can love your mate, your family, your friends, and the world around you with the same practical, transforming love. Dispelling your fears and misconceptions of God, Love Beyond Reason brings you face-to-face with the Love that frees and empowers you to love.

yrmbGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A book for the hurtingApril 1, 2011yrmbGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I first purchased this book when it was "hot off the press" Since then have recommended it highly to anyone who is wondering if God's love is real. If so, how can all of these things have happened. Other books may be harsh when you feel your dreams and hopes have shattered but this one brings you to the truth of the Love of God and His plans for your life in a wonderful way. Broken, yes, but behind it all , the love of God.

Fran Day5 Stars Out Of 5September 18, 2008Fran DayI choose this book to use as a guide for a bible study. John Ortberg's words brought home to me the importance of knowing the love of the Father for each of His rag dolls. This love when embraced extends out to touch the lives of other rag dolls. Worthwhile read.
