Item description for If God Is Love: Rediscovering Grace in an Ungracious World (Gulley, Philip) by Philip Gulley & James Mulholland...

Overview
If God is love . . . Why are so many Christians fearful? Why do so many Church leaders sound hateful? Why does religion often create more pain than healing? What would it take for our world to become more gracious? In If Grace Is True, pastors Philip Gulley and James Mulholland revealed their belief that God will save every person. They now explore the implications of this belief and its power to change every area of our lives. They attempt to answer one question: If we took God's love seriously, what would our world look like? Gulley and Mulholland argue that what we believe is crucial and dramatically affects the way we live and interact in the world. Beliefs have power. The belief in a literal hell, where people suffer eternally, has often been used by the Church to justify hate and violence, which contradict what Jesus taught about love and grace. The authors present a new vision for our personal, religious, and corporate lives, exploring what our world would be like if we based our existence on the foundational truth that God loves every person. Gulley and Mulholland boldly address many controversial issues people in the pews have wondered about but churches have been unwilling to tackle. For too long, the Christian tradition has been steeped in negativity, exclusion, and judgment. Gulley and Mulholland usher us into a new era -- an age where grace and love are allowed to reign.

Reviews - What do customers think about If God Is Love: Rediscovering Grace in an Ungracious World (Gulley, Philip)?

Liberating  Jun 5, 2008
This book has brought me back to Christianity at a time when I thought that I would never have anything to do with it again. I've always tried really hard to be a good person, but I didn't understand that I was doing it out of fear rather than love until I read this book. I feel liberated from the burden of original sin, something that I thought I no longer believed in, but was carrying around anyway for more than 30 years. I have a better appreciation of the importance of Jesus' teachings and how, by living more like he did, I can have a positive impact on today's world. If you have any baggage when it comes to your Christian upbringing, I encourage you to buy this book.
 
great book  Jan 30, 2008
Well written and easy to read. This book expands further on the ideas presented in If Grace is True. Presents ideas on universalism and unconditional love from God in a very down to earth format. Easy to relate to the stories and ideas in this book. Good on it's own but I would recommend reading If Grace is True with it.
 
Incredible book; Uplifting; Hopeful  Jan 19, 2008
This book arrived quickly and was in perfect condition.
I highly recommend this book (and the other by the authors: If Grace is True)for anyone searching to understand God and his unconditional love and grace. While I don't agree with all the ideas in this book, it sure got me to thinking about things and people in a different way. A gentler, more nonjudgmental, loving way. Definitely a refreshing change from the fire and brimstone approach (fear, fear, fear, sin, sin, sin) of some churches and people. I have a hard time believing in such a mean, vengeful God/Heavenly Father.
 
Well written book - thought-provoking  Nov 27, 2007
This book was my first introduction to Universalism. It is well-written and every chapter held my interest. There are many thought provoking concepts that make great discussion topics. They certainly do not make good debate topics unless you are much more well-read on the topic. That is actually my only complaint is that some chapters were interesting but light and airy, proposing problems but a little light on solutions. This is a great introduction to the topic - there are other more heavily referenced books available to compliment this one once curiousity has been piqued.
 
Either you get it or you don't  Apr 16, 2007
I've already shared this book with my closest loved one, and I intend to get copies for other members of my family. With humility and humor, the authors explain their personal revelations, concerning the ultimate salvation of everyone. One of the important things that has been lost amongst all the bickering, about who's right and wrong, which ironically is covered extensively by the authors, is the fact that these are personal revelations that they decided to share with anyone who has an open mind and heart. I found many of the details of their own experiences with christianity, mirror my own. I left the 'church' long ago. I had my own personal revelations and found fellowship with others who are spiritually like minded and never looked back. I stumbled on this book at a friends' home, but I know it was a blessing that was delivered to me. What people fail to comprehend is that anytime they are in earshot of a sermon, they are listening to someone elses interpretation of scripture. So it makes no sense to berate these fellas for having an opinion. If the Christ appeared today, he would be crucified again, faster than you can say Easter. The world would sadden me beyond comprehension, except for the fact that I know everything and everybody will be alright in the end.
