It may not be a very sophisticated image, but in it you can glimpse Gods lovelove that ascribes value beyond reason, far beyond the intrinsic worth of its object. God loves you not because youre flawless, not because youre a perfect person, but just because you are. And in returning his love, he wants you to love others the same way.
In Love Beyond Reason, John Ortberg reveals the God youve longed to encounter: a Father head-over-heels in love with you, his child, and intensely committed to your highest joy. Ortberg takes you to the very core of Gods being to discover a burning, passionate love that gives, and gives, and gives. He explores the life-changing ways this love has expressed itself through Jesus. And he shows how you, like Jesus, can love your mate, your family, your friends, and the world around you with the same practical, transforming love.
