One after one other, the world's religions fail to light up its truth and wonder. all of the whereas, the overpowering presence of evil has pressured love into the shadows of elusiveness. yet throughout the barrage of makes an attempt to give an explanation for love's resource, it's the Christian God by myself who has introduced that means, price, and everlasting value to this oft-misunderstood advantage. it's the Christian God by myself whose divine and excellent love used to be published in all its beauty within the move of Jesus Christ.

Haddad, in spite of the fact that, doesn't curb from this daunting job, yet fairly marshals the theological and philosophical assets required to set forth a compelling case that merely the Christian imaginative and prescient of lifestyles may give love its right which means, worth, and significance--even (or particularly) amidst the entire tears, blood, and fears of a global 'east of Eden.'"
