While there is no substitute for personal, faithful, and careful Bible reading and prayer, the Bible's vast size and diversity can make distilling its truth a daunting task. Thus most Christians benefit from supplemental resources to help learn and apply what Scripture teaches. Renowned theologian, Gerald Bray has produced just such a resource in his new systematic theology. Though packed with robust content, he writes about this volume: 'the aim . . . is to reach those who would not normally find systematic theology appealing or even comprehensible.' This volume is unique from others in that Bray traces the common theme of God's love through the Bible categorically from God's love for himself and his creation to the cross as the ultimate expression of God's love, among other categories. The centrality of God's love in Bray's theology reflects a deep conviction that the Bible shows us God for who he really is. This volume will be of interest to Christians seeking to grow in their faith. 'Intimidated by theology books? This is the book for you. Here you'll find a firm place to stand to take in the full panorama of Christian belief centered around the wonderful and worship inspiring truth of the love of God, and firmly anchored in the sure and certain word of God. If you've read Lewis's Mere Christianity or Stott's Basic Christianity and you long to know more, then you're ready to move on to Gerald Bray's God Is Love.' -Stephen J. Nichols, Research Professor of Christianity and Culture, Lancaster Bible College
