From the Back Cover

An in-depth look at a God who not only loves, but is love.
 
Love has come to mean many things. It’s used to describe emotions. It’s the glue for relationships. It frames countless stories.
 
And the greatest of these stories opens before time began and echoes throughout eternity. It’s the story of God’s unrelenting, overwhelming love for His people. Yet the truth of love is even more majestic, more staggering, and more extraordinary than we can understand: God doesn’t just love us. He is love.
 
Renowned theologian and teacher Dr.R.C. Sproul takes a remarkable look at this most profound truth. God’s Love delves deep into Scripture to explore this dynamic attribute of God, which finds its ultimate expression in His Son. Dr. Sproul also examines seeming paradoxes of God, such as a loving God and divine hate, and how love coexists with His sovereignty. Practical, insightful, and revolutionary, God’s Love compels and calls us to reflect His nature of unconditional love.

Format: Paperback
This book was originally titled Loved by God, published in 2001. The book provides vignettes of God's love and how it relates to his other attributes.
Sproul notes that if we do not get God's love right, we will fail to have a sound understanding of Him. Scripture tells us, "God is love." All genuine love proceeds from God and is rooted in Him. In people, this love is found only in the regenerated.
Sproul is quick to acknowledge that anything we say about God will be said anthropomorphically. Whatever God's love is, it transcends our best efforts to describe it.
Sproul writes about what it means that God's love is holy. He investigates God's love as seen in the Old Testament and as shown through His Son. He explains the loyal love of God, God's faithful love, God's hatred, and God's unconditional love (not universalism).
He explains the relationship of God's love to His electing grace, as well as God's sovereignty. (He critiques the prescient view.) He discusses the order of salvation, and the Augustinian and semi-Pelagian views of election. He covers the threefold love of God: benevolence, beneficence, complacency.
He lastly discusses agape as is it to be shown by the believer, concentrating on 1 Corinthians 13.

This is pure R. C. Sproul. He writes with theological clarity and conviction. It is also pure Calvinism.
There is lots of theology in this book that some might find a little difficult. Nonetheless, this is a great explanation of God's love and how it relates to election. With Calvinism on the rise, this a good book for a new generation of believers.

I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

This is quite a remarkable book. It seems that if something goes wrong in our life, if there is a natural disaster, a plane crash, the holocaust, and so on, we have a tendency to blame God. He could have done something to prevent it. Hence, many people lay the blame for disasters at God's feet. This book is firmly behind the opposition to this point of view. It says that God IS love. What kind of sense does that make with so much going wrong. It presents a different point of view, and makes a very good case for believing that God actually IS the very essence of love.

This is another excellent book by R.C. Sproul. This was a reread for me. Years ago, this title was published as "Loved by God". I enjoyed it then and did the same this time.

R.C. has such a gift for taking deep theological truths and explaining them to the average layperson. This book is no exception.

"God's Love" is just that, a book about the love of God. He delves into some fascinating questions.

Does God love us with an unconditional love?
What does it mean that God loves Jacob, but hates Esau?
What do the 3 Greek words for "love" mean?
How does God's love fit with His other attributes, like His holiness and justice?

He answers these questions and many, many more.

It is a medium sized book at 256 pages, but is packed with some great doctrinal teaching. It answers many questions concerning God's sovereignty and love.

The last 3rd of the book is a verse by verse exposition of 1 Corinthians 13 - the "Love chapter" This alone is worth the price of the book.

I don't know if I would consider this work in the same caliber as Sproul's "Holiness of God" or "Chosen by God", but it is a great title and worth being read twice.

I highly recommend this book and any other work by R.C. Sproul.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

*I received this book, free of charge, from David C Cook and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I also purchased a copy for Kindle from Amazon, and own a Hardback version.

"God's Love" covers a variety of topics and does not just discuss God's love. R. C. Sproul explains that while God is Love he is also holy, sovereign, just and wrathful. R. C. Sproul explains how it is possible to love your enemies without having feelings for them. He also spends a good deal of time discussing predestination. He also explains difficult verses, especially the one where God is said to hate someone. If you like I Corinithians 13 you will enjoy the explanations. Even the story of Jonah gets into this book. Somehow everything is related to love and reading this book is a pleasant experience.

This is a great book by Pastor Sproul expounding on the love of God. It is also a brief summary of the Doctrines of Grace. As usually, Pastor Sproul captivates us when teaching the Truth of God. This is also a very good evangelistic tool. I already bought some paperback editions in Portuguese to give to some Family and friends. It is a pleasant Reading.

I so appreciate RC teaching of the Lord and this topic. Love ...it is so misunderstood. Love can mean different things to all of us. Love to us can be affirmation, gifts, service, physical and however, with affirmation, gifts, etc. God loves us thru his holiness. God is the source of the true definition of love. We can twist love when we become the source of what love is. In this study, I can see how I have done that without realizing how easy it is to do. Our union with Christ is the start of that source and it continues as we abide in Christ. The sovereignty of God plays heavily in our understanding of the love of God that it frees us to love others with true purity of heart. The sovereignty of God makes it about who God is and not about us. That in itself can take a lifetime to grasp and understand and is never boring. I think it is because there is a wonder, an awe of the sovereignty of God that softens our hard hearts. RC goes into the depth of how God loved Jacob and hated Easu. Reading that can cause some to question God's love but when you go deeper, you actually see God's sovereignty and God's grace. It would be not grace if we deserved it. Reading this book, I am reminded that the bible shows the condition of this weary broken heart
