"God is love." There are few more quoted statements in all of Scripture than this three word declaration. Although wonderfully simple, this truth is incredibly profound-and therefore often misunderstood, twisted, and taken out of context. Rather than remembering that it is God who is love, we too often make human love our standard.
Exploring what the Bible teaches about God's love, Dr. Gary Williams' His Love Endures Forever: Reflections on the Immeasurable Love of God will lead you to marvel at both its unique nature and its immeasurable greatness. Addressing the ways we often confuse God's love with human love, this book looks to the Bible for a reliable explanation of how and what God loves-helping readers recalibrate their understanding of the truth that God is fundamentally a God of love.

SpencerAge: 45-545 Stars Out Of 5Rich Reformed Theology of the Love of GodAugust 30, 2016SpencerAge: 45-54Quality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 5The author is the Director of the John Owen Centre at London Theological Seminary so I was expecting his study of the love of God to reflect his learning from Owen and historical theology in general. I am not disappointed! I very rarely buy Crossway publications as I find many of them to be unworthy of publication, but this is the most theologically skillful and robust study I've come across written at a popular level. I only wish Crossway published this book in hardback as it deserves to be.
Chs. 1 and 2 are methodological with ch. 2 coming into play in chs. 8 and 9. Ch. 3 establishes that God himself defines what love is. Ch. 4 concerns God loving himself the most seeing as the most perfect Being must of necessity love that which is perfect. Ch. 5 addresses God making himself the Father of those he adopts as his children. Ch. 6 deals with the aseity (self-sufficiency) of God in relation to his love. Ch. 7 looks at the sovereignty of God's grace in election and regeneration. Ch. 8 deals with God's immutability in relation to his love and ch. 9 explains the impassibility of God in relation to his love. Ch. 10 takes up God's omniscience, ch. 11 the holiness of God, and ch. 12 the grace of God.
I read Packer's classic Knowing God when I was young but it just didn't do anything for me. I love Packer on hermeneutics, the doctrine of Scripture, and the Puritans, but find Williams' work here to be far more edifying than Knowing God. After reading Williams', you would probably enjoy Owen's Communion with God which is wonderful.
