God as Love: The Concept and Spiritual Aspects of Agape in Modern Russian Thought


Eerdmans 2014

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Nineteenth-century Russian religious intellectuals devoted a great deal of attention to the concept of agape, or divine love, arguing that the Christian church is a reflection of the triune, self-sacrificing God and his love for all of creation. In God as Love, Johannes Oravecz presents a comprehensive summation of 25 prominent Russian thinkers and their thought on the concept of agape, showing in detail how they broke new ground in their various affirmations of the truth that God is love.
