No principle is more vital than love — the anchor for the two great commandments. These thought-provoking essays explore the deeper dimensions and applications of love. They begin with an exploration of the sources of love beyond the human heart, acknowledging love as a fruit of the Spirit of God. Next follows a study of romantic love that traces its meaning into the very nature of the Divine. Related to this is a profile of family love, and keys to employing "the language of love at home." Finally readers will find a response to the outcry, "How can there be a God of power and love when today's world is an abyss of suffering and alienation?" Writing from religious, philosophical, and personal perspectives, Truman Madsen clothes the principle of love in fresh new meaning.
