God’s love is the subject of Peter Kreeft’s imaginative and thoughtful book. With unusual clarity, Kreeft points out that the man or woman who begins to glimpse the God who is creator, redeemer, and lover of our souls, will never be the same. He describes Scripture as God’s love story and then explains why divine love is the answer to our deepest problems and the fulfillment of our deepest desires.
Posing the hard questions about love that rankle the heart, Peter Kreeft never settles for easy answers. He exposes today’s superficial attitudes about love in order lead people into a deeper understanding of what it means to be loved by God.
