    At the heart of the book is a reflection on Jesus’s double answer to the single question about the greatest commandment in the Law. Jesus does not just link the love of God to the love of neighbour: he transforms the transcendence of God into the immanence of love . A love deity is a deity in mythology associated with romance, sex, lust, or deities are common in mythology and may be found in many polytheistic religions. Female sex goddesses are often associated with beauty and other traditionally feminine attributes.

    (Click to listen to an audio recording of this article: A letter of love from God to you) You fall and make mistakes; you do things you regret. You know what it means to stand in the heat of temptation feeling rotten because of how strongly you are tempted by your lusts The desires that we experience that go against God’s will. In other words, a desire for anything sinful. “In constructing her “dialogue between Charles Darwin's account of the origin of species and the Christian story of the ineffable God of mercy and love recounted in the Nicene Creed” (xv), Johnson writes so skillfully in her judicious use of a broad swathe of traditional and contemporary literature, and also so beautifully, that this book may well stand out as one of the most important to come from the early .

      The contributors—including D. A. Carson, Andreas J. Köstenberger, 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, .   Erato: Love Poetry Euterpe: Song and Elegiac Poetry (Elegiac Poetry was poetry that either was an elegy, or was composed in the meter and rhyme scheme in which elegies were normally composed in Ancient Greece).

Love of a God of Love is a major achievement of philosophical thinking.” ― Richard Amesbury, Associate Professor of Ethics, Claremont School of Theology, USA “'When read as a thought-experiment, this book is provocative, even if not completely : Hugo Strandberg.

“Mirabai Starr’s new book, God of Love – A Guide to the Heart of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, will be disconcerting to many in an arena that seems sometimes to have been written to death – the complexities of the Abrahamic faiths. The interconnections Starr explores seem novel but obvious at first/5(65).

This is true of Mirabai Starr’s God of Love. Starr writes with deep compassion from a soul that experiences God in many faith traditions. There is history of the three Abrahamic religions woven with poetic beauty into the practicality of living a life that honors and Love of a god of love book God and humankind.

flag Like see review/5. Oswald Chambers,one of the world's most beloved Christian author's will help you gain a better knowledge of God and His place in your life through the five complete works in this book: The Love of God,The Ministry of the Unnoticed, Invincible Consolation,The Making of a /5(41).

In this book you will be shown how deep God's love is for you and how you in return should love him with all your heart, soul and mind.

This is a wonderful book for any Christian to read. Oswald Chambers is so insightful when it comes to the Holy Word Of God.:+) flag Like see review/5. Being a Christian means learning to love with God's love. But God's love is not a warm feeling in the pit of the stomach.

It has definite characteristics we learn in the course of our life, in the behavior and teaching of the early monastics, as we ponder over what we can say about God as God deals with us, and finally, as we model our own lives on what we have learned/5(20). For the Love of God: A Daily Companion for Discovering the Riches of God's Word, Volume 1 by D.

Carson | out of 5 stars This short book helped me immensely, every Christian library should have it, especially those individuals who expect to go to the university.

Rather than lay your brain at the door If you have always wondered about the problem of evil and why does God allow it, etc, and you are a Christian, then you need to get this short, simple and concise book/5. John Ortberg's book spells out, as well as it seems you can, God's love to someone.

The hard part is accepting his love, because I know I am not worthy of it, yet I must receive it to become His/5(39). Service, gladly rendered, obligations squarely met, troubles well accepted or solved with God's help, the knowledge that at home or in the world outside we are partners in a common effort, the well-understood fact that in God's sight all human beings are important, the proof that love freely given surely brings a full return, the certainty that.

We must realize our love, God's love, love of all people, brotherly love, love of justice, love of truth, love of honesty this is what we must be aware of. May we reflect on this, my very precious children, jeweled lights of my eyes, may each child reflect on this, understand what wisdom is, and acquire that love.

The picture the Bible presents of God’s love is one in which His love, even in eternity past, even before the creation of anything, is other-oriented.

This cannot be said (for instance) of Allah. Yet because the God of the Bible is one, this plurality-in-unity does not destroy His entirely appropriate self-focus as God. True love for God involves more than simply saying, “I love Jehovah.” Like faith, genuine love is defined and characterized by the actions it prompts.

(James ) Specifically, love expresses itself in deeds pleasing to the one who is loved. "Rejecting the 'formalist' distinction between the 'what' and the 'how' of believing, Hugo Strandberg offers a lucid and pathbreaking account of belief in God as love of a God of love. Romans 8 lands on the note of God’s unstoppable, unshakeable love for us in Christ.

Nothing — however dark or hard — can separate us from him. In this lab, John Piper reveals the love of God for us, and calls us all to love one another in response to this great love.

God of Love celebrates the mystical and social justice teachings of the world's three monotheistic traditions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This is a passionate defense of the hidden and often unacknowledged treasures of these complex and volatile paths.

Theology has constantly wrestled with the nature of God's love and what it means for how God relates to the world. In this comprehensive canonical theology of divine love, John C. Peckham argues for an account that avoids the errors of both voluntarist and experientialist theologies and faithfully represents the full biblical witness.

God of Love is Mirabai Starr’s passionate and personal exploration of the interconnected wisdom of the three Abrahamic faiths. "If God Is Love" is a genuine attempt to progress from their earlier book, "If Grace Is True", and it makes the transition reasonably well.

Gulley and Mulholland take a look at different aspects of life (religion, politics, money, justice, etc) and apply the principles of Christian Universalism to s: “Keep Yourselves in God’s Love” This publication will help you to continue to apply Bible principles in your life and thus keep yourself in God’s love.

A Letter From the Governing Body The Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses urges all who love Jehovah to follow. Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

1 John | View whole chapter | See verse in context But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?

But the ironic truth is that their concept of love comes primarily from the fact that mankind was created in the image of a loving God (Genesis )—it is stamped, to a greater or lesser extent, on every human heart, whether or not a person recognizes its origin.

2 Also, the concepts of mercy, grace, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness in many cultures (e.g., Islamic) and sub-cultures (e.g., British .The love of God was proved back at the cross, and it is experienced now in our hearts. The love of God was poured out at the cross by the Son of God, and it is poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit.
