Book Review: R. C. Sproul - God's Love 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.
