Love Beyong Reason: Moving God's love from your head to your heart.
How do you explain a love that has no explanation? What will happen if you let it touch your heart? God loves you not because you are flawless, not because you are a perfect person, but just because you are.
In Love Beyond Reason, John Ortberg reveals the God you've longed to encounter: a Father head-over-heels in love with you, his child, and intensely committed to your highest joy. Ortberg takes you to the very core of God's being to discover a burning, passionate love that gives, and gives, and gives. He explores the life-changing ways this love has expressed itself through Jesus. And he shows how you, like Jesus, can love your mate, your family, your friends, and the world around you with the same practical, transforming love.
Dispelling your fears and misconceptions of God, Love Beyond Reason brings you face-to-face with the Love that frees and empowers you to love.
“Pandy” was only a child’s rag doll—one arm missing, the stuffing pulled out of her. But in the eyes of the small girl who loved her, she was priceless.
It may not be a very sophisticated image, but in it you can glimpse God’s love—love that ascribes value beyond reason, far beyond the intrinsic worth of its object. God loves you not because you’re flawless, not because you’re a perfect person, but just because you are. And in returning his love, he wants you to love others the same way.
Using powerful and moving illustrations, Ortberg demonstrates the different characteristics of love—how it . . . hears the heart touches the untouchable delights in giving second chances balances gentleness and firmness teaches with wisdom walks in grace chooses the beloved searches for those in hiding . . . and walks in the kind of humility that, in the person of Jesus, willingly descended from the heights to don the rags of our rag-doll humanity.
Dispelling your fears and misconceptions, Love Beyond Reason shows you the true character of your heavenly Father. With passion and wisdom, John Ortberg brings you face-to-face with the Love that frees and empowers you to love.
