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.
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.

We are so arrogant, full of pride. We too easily forget that but for the love of God our lives, if we even had one, would be so different. O, how great Thou art my heavenly Father.Published 14 months ago by Kindle Customer
