Resources for Changing Lives - God's Love: Better than UnconditionalISBN: 9780875526867
"God's unconditional love." Sounds nice, but is it enough? Is there more to God's love?
Describing unconditional love as detached "blanket acceptance" and "benign affirmation," David Powlison challenges our common assumption about the nature of God's love. Although wonderfully accepting, divine love is also intrusive, intimate, personal, and active. Instead of simply loving us as we are, God loves us enough to change us.
Powlison acknowledges four underlying truths of unconditional love, offers biblical improvements on the idea, and urges us to see God's love for what it really is-better than unconditional.
Resources for Changing Lives provide book- and booklet-length counsel and guidance from a biblical perspective. Counselors including David Powlison, Paul David Tripp, and Ed Welch get to the heart of our struggles and help us understand the spiritual issues involved, guiding us to biblical truths and outcomes that honor God and teach us how to live.
David Powlison (MDiv, Westminster Theological Seminary; MA, PhD, University of Pennsylvania) is executive director of the Christian Counseling and Education Foundation in Glenside, Pennsylvania, and the editor of the Journal of Biblical Counseling. He teaches at Westminster Theological Seminary and is a board member and fellow of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors.
