  • Christian love is not some weak, fuzzy attempt to be "nice" and "not rock any boats." Gods love is the transformative power of the universe that was revealed in Jesus Christ and is available to anyone willing to take up the cross and embrace it. It is "the one thing necessary" that Jesus taught and acted upon during his entire ministry.

    In this radical new interpretation of love as the touchstone of the Christian message, well-respected author Leonard Doohan explores the human longing for meaning; the Scriptures; the relational model of the Trinity: the ideas of human vocation, destiny and community; the mystical spiritual traditions; and his own experiences to explain what love is, how we find it, and how it can change the world.

    Each of the seven chapters contains several quotes and focus points at the beginning and provocative questions at the end for reflection of discussion by adult religious educations and bible study groups.

    - Loves Call: Finding Meaning in Gods Love
    - Loves Way: Jesus Life of Love for Humanity
    - Loves Word: Jesus Teachings on Love
    - Loves Life: The Inner Life of God Is a Life of Love
    - Loves Pain: A World Crying for Love
    - Loves Hope: Our Vocation to Love
