Product Description

There are, of course, many books addressing the concept of biblical love as it applies to any number of human relationships. But each of the emphases differs and for the most part remains broad. For example, books may focus on the biblical definition of love, or the concept of love in Paul or in the writings of John. But Piper's focus is more precise. He wants to focus on love as an ethical imperative or command as given by Christ and to examine the command with specific emphasis the object of love, namely, the enemy.

This focus became John Piper's dissertation topic in the early 1970s, and this book Love Your Enemies is the newest edition of that study. Formerly published in academic circles, this study is now available in an accessible format from Crossway and provides intensely focused study on just what Jesus had in mind when he commanded us to love our neighbor.

Publisher's Description

<p><strong>“Love Your Enemies…”</strong></p> <p>This is one of the few statements Jesus made that is readily accepted by believers and skeptics alike. Its authenticity is not seriously questioned and yet it is a revolutionary command.</p> <p>Giving attention to various critical theories, John Piper presents evidence that the early church earnestly advocated for non-retaliatory love, extending it to those who practiced evil in the world. Such love was key to the church’s own ethical tradition or paraenesis.</p> <p>Piper illuminates the Synoptics and passages in Romans, as well as 1 Thessalonians and 1 Peter, with non-canonical evidence, investigating the theological significance of Jesus’s love command.</p> <p>Originally published as #38 in the Society for New Testament Studies <em>Monograph Series</em>, this is John Piper’s doctoral dissertation from the University of Munich. It is a serious work of Christian scholarship by a long-time respected author and pastor. This repackaged edition features a new, extensive introduction and will be of interest to scholars, students, and lay people who have training in New Testament studies.</p>
