Product Description

Our understanding of the love of God has been tragically distorted. Instead of the true, biblical depiction of God's love, we encounter a comfortable, watered-down and sentimentalized version. This volume from the Theology in Community series has been designed to help readers truly grasp what it means to confess that "God is love.

Featuring contributions from well-known evangelical scholars, this multi-disciplinary study presents the biblical view of the love of God from the perspectives of systematic theology, biblical theology, apologetics, pastoral theology, and ethics. The contributors-including D. A. Carson, Andreas J. Kvstenberger, Raymond C. Ortlund Jr., Robert L. Plummer, and many others-address a variety of issues related to how God's love is expressed in the Old and New Testaments, the Trinity, apologetics, Christian living, social justice, and more.

As the name of the series may suggest,Theology in Community, aims to promote clear thinking on and godly responses to historic and theological issues. This theological and biblical study is composed in community, seeking to demonstrate that theology is meant to be done in teams. The community of theologians is comprised of leading evangelical scholars, from a variety of denominational backgrounds and life experiences, each of whom brings their unique expertise to bear on a biblical and theological topic from a variety of theological perspectives. Written from a high view of Scripture with robust evangelical conviction and pastoral pathos, these volumes provide for pastors, leaders and laypeople up-to-date resources for exploring both theology and practice with accessible depth.
