Item description for The God Who Loves You: Love Divine, All Loves Excelling by Peter Kreeft...
Overview God's love is the subject of Peter Kreeft's imaginative and thoughtful book (a revised and updated version of his book Knowing the Truth of God's Love). With unusual clarity, Kreeft points out that the man or woman who begins to glimpse the God who is Creator, Redeemer, and Lover of our souls, will never be the same. He describes Scripture as God's love story and then tells why divine love is the answer to our deepest problems and the fulfillment of our deepest desires. Posing the hard questions about love that rankle the heart, Peter Kreeft never settles for easy answers. He exposes today's superficial attitudes about love to lead people to a deeper understanding of what it means to be loved by God, addressing these issues and many more: How can I really know God's love for me?; If God is love, why do bad things happen to good people.

Fantastic Book. A must read!! Jan 15, 2008
Peter Kreeft brings his amazing clarity and pure heart to paper, inviting the reader on a journey to discover the God who is Love.
Very good approach to this amazing love Nov 20, 2007
I have to admit, it's a great book, he takes a very interesting and intellectual approach which I really appreciated. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone that is just trying to find their way of faith in todays world or already has a close relationship with God, or especially for people who are still far away from him, I think its a great book to show to skeptics the true love of God, who is love himself.

God's love simplified for the average reader May 6, 2007
Peter Kreeft brings to Christians the true meaning of God's love for mankind. His examples and simple theologic reasoning make it easy for all readers to comprehend the great love that God shares with all of us. He puts this into perspective in a very unique way and makes it instructive for the way we need to share God's love with one another.
A Wonderful Love Letter Mar 13, 2006
I thought this book was wonderful. It carefully explores many questions that arise from the statement, "God is Love" and gives well-reasoned answers that are faithful to the Magisterium of the Church. This book is very uplifting because it helps you to really see how God is Love, and how God's love works in our lives. Prof. Kreeft helps you to rise above our common way of thinking about love in society and points the way for a deeper way of thinking about love in general and God's love in particular.
I feel this book has deepened my faith in God and my understanding of some of the Church's teachings on God's love. I find Prof. Kreeft to be very readable, and the pages go by quickly. I think this book is a "must-read", definitely for all adult Catholics and probably for all adult Christians. Quite honestly, when I finished this book I wanted to run into the streets and tell the world about it. I felt like I had been let-in on the world's best kept secret and the time had come to let that secret out!
