Synopsis: The love of God is arguably the most central doctrine of the Christian faith, and yet, remarkably, the subject of God's love has not received the attention it deserves. This new work by an international team of theologians and biblical scholars fills this need, offering a clear, complete, and inspiring discussion on the nature of God's love and its meaning for the Christian life. After surveying the ways in which the love of God has been understood through the ages, the book constructs an understanding of God's love particularly relevant for today. Though exploring the subject from many angles 'biblical theology, historical theology, philosophical theology, and systematic theology' these chapters are united in seeing Jesus, who was at once human and divine, as the ultimate criterion for defining the love of God. Contributors: Lewis Ayres Gary Badcock Roy Clements David Fergusson Geoffrey Grogan Trevor Hart Paul Helm Tony Lane Alan Torrance

Book Description William B Eerdmans Publishing Co, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The love of God is arguably the most central doctrine of the Christian faith, and yet, remarkably, the subject of God s love has not received the attention it deserves. In Nothing Greater, Nothing Better an international team of distinguished theologians and biblical scholars admirably fills this need, offering clear and inspiring discussion of the nature of God s love and its implications for the Christian life. Kevin J. Vanhoozer begins the book by outlining the proper theological context of and main issues involved in meaningful talk about God s love today. Gary D. Badcock revisits the distinction between agape and eros, crafting a fresh understanding of these terms in relation to God s loving act in Christ. Geoffrey Grogan reviews the biblical evidence that ought to guide our thinking about God s love. Lewis Ayres examines Augustine s view of God s love as expressed in his commentary on 1 John and in his profound work on the Trinity. Trevor Hart examines the perils of using human language to speak of God, including attempts to fully grasp the concept of God s love. Alan J. Torrance looks for insight in the great Johannine assertion God is love. Tony Lane queries the possibility of thinking about God s wrath and God s love together. Paul Helm asks whether God can love the world, turning, provocatively, to natural theology for an answer. David Fergusson takes up the vital eschatological concern: will the love of God ultimately triumph? The book closes with a sermon on Hosea 11 by Roy Clements that moves reflection on God s love from dogmatics to doxology. Though exploring the subject of God s love from many angles, these chapters are united in their understanding that it is not human love per se, but rather the love of the man Jesus -- representative both of God and of an authentic humanity -- that is the ultimate criterion for thinking about the love of God. Readers will find this volume both thought-provoking and spiritually uplifting. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780802849021
