Synopsis:
Reveals the God you've longed to encounter: a Father head-over-heals in love with you and committed to your highest joy.

Review:
It may not be a very sophisticated image, but in it we glimpse God's love--love that ascribes value beyond reason, far beyond the intrinsic worth of its object. God loves us not for what we are, but because we are. And in returning his love, he wants us to love each other the same way. In Love Beyond Reason, John Ortberg reveals the God we've longed to encounter: a Father head-over-heels in love with his children and intensely committed to their highest joy. Ortberg takes us to the very core of God's being to discover a burning, passionate love that gives, and gives, and gives. He explores the life-changing ways that love expressed itself through Jesus. And he shows how we, like Jesus, can love our mates, our families, our friends, and the world around us with the same practical, transforming love. Using powerful and moving illustrations, Ortberg demonstrates the different characteristics of love--how it hears the heart, touches the untouchable, delights in giving second chances, balances gentleness and firmness, teaches with wisdom, walks in grace, chooses the beloved, and searches for those in hiding. And how it walks in the kind of humility that, in the person of Jesus, willingly descended from the heights to don the rags of our rag-doll humanity. Dispelling our fears and misconceptions, Love Beyond Reason reveals the true character of our heavenly Father. With passion and wisdom, John Ortberg brings us face-to-face with the Love that frees and empowers us to love.
