Product Description

An in-depth look at a God who not only loves, but is love. Love has come to mean many things. It's used to describe emotions. It's the glue for relationships. It frames countless stories. And the greatest of these stories opens before time began and echoes throughout eternity. It's the story of God's unrelenting, overwhelming love for His people. Yet the truth of love is even more majestic, more staggering, and more extraordinary than we can understand: God doesn't just love us. He is love. Renowned theologian and teacher Dr. R.C. Sproul takes a remarkable look at this most profound truth. God's Love delves deep into Scripture to explore this dynamic attribute of God, which finds its ultimate expression in His Son. Dr. Sproul also examines seeming paradoxes of God, such as a loving God and divine hate, and how love coexists with His sovereignty. Practical, insightful, and revolutionary, God's Love compels and calls us to reflect His nature of unconditional love.

Sproul's classic work on God's Love 20 Oct 2012
By Joan N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was originally titled Loved by God, published in 2001. The book provides vignettes of God's love and how it relates to his other attributes.
Sproul notes that if we do not get God's love right, we will fail to have a sound understanding of Him. Scripture tells us, "God is love." All genuine love proceeds from God and is rooted in Him. In people, this love is found only in the regenerated.
Sproul is quick to acknowledge that anything we say about God will be said anthropomorphically. Whatever God's love is, it transcends our best efforts to describe it.
Sproul writes about what it means that God's love is holy. He investigates God's love as seen in the Old Testament and as shown through His Son. He explains the loyal love of God, God's faithful love, God's hatred, and God's unconditional love (not universalism).
He explains the relationship of God's love to His electing grace, as well as God's sovereignty. (He critiques the prescient view.) He discusses the order of salvation, and the Augustinian and semi-Pelagian views of election. He covers the threefold love of God: benevolence, beneficence, complacency.
He lastly discusses agape as is it to be shown by the believer, concentrating on 1 Corinthians 13.

This is pure R. C. Sproul. He writes with theological clarity and conviction. It is also pure Calvinism.
There is lots of theology in this book that some might find a little difficult. Nonetheless, this is a great explanation of God's love and how it relates to election. With Calvinism on the rise, this a good book for a new generation of believers.

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

Has God received bad press? 6 Dec 2012
By Pilot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is quite a remarkable book. It seems that if something goes wrong in our life, if there is a natural disaster, a plane crash, the holocaust, and so on, we have a tendency to blame God. He could have done something to prevent it. Hence, many people lay the blame for disasters at God's feet. This book is firmly behind the opposition to this point of view. It says that God IS love. What kind of sense does that make with so much going wrong. It presents a different point of view, and makes a very good case for believing that God actually IS the very essence of love.

Covers a Variety of Topics 3 July 2013
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
"God's Love" covers a variety of topics and does not just discuss God's love. R. C. Sproul explains that while God is Love he is also holy, sovereign, just and wrathful. R. C. Sproul explains how it is possible to love your enemies without having feelings for them. He also spends a good deal of time discussing predestination. He also explains difficult verses, especially the one where God is said to hate someone. If you like I Corinithians 13 you will enjoy the explanations. Even the story of Jonah gets into this book. Somehow everything is related to love and reading this book is a pleasant experience.

Insightful 5 July 2014

This book helped me see some things that were unclear which strengthened my faith and gave answers to some really difficult answers. I expect to be 're-reading to get the full scope of this book. Although tough to read, it's well worth the read
