Written by a student of Denney’s at the spurring of A. M. Hunter, God Loves Like That! is a biographical investigation of James Denney’s theology and thought-life. Each chapter investigates—through Denney’s own writings, the events of his life, and what others have said about him—a particular aspect of his theology, such as his eschatological beliefs, his doctrine on the atonement, and his teaching on the Holy Spirit. This book is a close, personal look at the heart and mind of one of Scotland’s best scholars.

Praise for the Print Edition

In Denney you will find what you do not always find in our modern theologians—be it Barth or Tillich—what is in fact one of the first virtues of great theological writing—perfect lucidity of thought and expression. He had drilled himself on Burke, and he always wrote with pellucid precision.
