Love Ð such a deceptively simple and popular little word.It is almost universally agreed that we need love in order to live and flourish as human beings; and yet within our contemporary culture there are numerous confusing, competing and evolving ideas about what ÔloveÕ is.There are few greater subjects in Christian theology than love; yet it is a surprisingly complex and challenging concept to understand, let alone live by. Patrick MitchelÕs conviction is that Christians need to be thinking about, and practising, love in compelling and winsome ways. Our task is not only to articulate what love is, but also to show to the world what authentic Christian love looks like in practice. ÔThe only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through loveÕ (Gal. 5:6 NIV).MitchelÕs exposition explores love in the Old Testament; how the love of God is supremely revealed in the mission and death of Jesus Christ; love in the life and teaching of Jesus; and the churchÕs calling to be a community of love. He helps us to grasp afresh the breadth, depth, scope, and radically counter-cultural nature of the BibleÕs teaching on love.
