D.A. Carson focuses on the aspects of Christian love that are not easy, such as loving your enemies and forgiving those who have hurt you. Whether the wounds come at the hands of a stranger in a distant land, from the neigbor next door, or from someone inside your home, this book helps you understand what biblical love is... and is not. As the author sorts through the diverse ways in which Scripture speaks of Christian love, he shows how that love reflects God's own love. You'll see how to love wisely and well, faithfully and biblically in heartwarming situations - how to love even in the hardest places in life.
Too often the Christian version of popular culture's sentimental view of love is that, of all things, Christians should be nice. After all, people ask, isn't the Church about forgiveness? Aren't Christians supposed to love others without condition?
This book not only focuses on the aspects of Christian love that are not easy-such as when it comes to loving our enemies, and even forgiving those loved ones who have hurt us-but also helps readers understand, then, what biblical love really is. As author D. A. Carson points out, thinking seriously about Christian love soon embroils us in reflection on justice, revenge, war, the authority of the state, forgiveness, hate, and much more. This book shows some of the important ways in which the love of Christians is a reflection of the love of God, and enables believers to develop an appropriate understanding of how to love in the hard places of life.
