"Gerald Bray is one of our leading evangelical scholars and teachers and he has given us here a magisterial overview of Christian belief and doctrine. A great example of theology in the service of the church." -Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School; General Editor, Reformation Commentary on Scripture "Soaked in the depth and breadth of the Christian tradition, Gerald Bray brings a rich wisdom to his exceedingly accessible systematic theology. Freshly organizing his approach around love, Bray does not fall into cheap sentimentality, but instead carefully teases out the drama and story of divine love and how it should inform our understanding of countless areas of theology and life. Students and laity in particular will find this volume immensely helpful, and I heartily recommend it to all!" -Kelly M. Kapic, professor of theological studies, Covenant College, Lookout Mountain, Georgia "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, President, Reformation Bible College; Chief Academic Officer, Ligonier Ministries; author, Martin Luther: A Guided Tour of His Life and Thought and The Reformation: How a Monk and a Mallet Changed the World "God Is Love is a warm, conversational, and contemporary systematic theology written by one of evangelicalism's leading thinkers. But it is much more. It is biblically saturated, historically rooted theological wisdom for the people of God." -Christopher W. Morgan, Dean and Professor of Theology, California Baptist University "Gerald Bray delivers on his promise-he teaches Christians about the God who is love and about the love that this triune God shows to others. He keeps this promise by pointing insistently to God's gracious speech in the Bible, and by showing consistently how it all hangs together in the story of this God and his gospel. This book is a gripping lesson from a master teacher. For introduction to biblical doctrine-its sources and its implications-Christians will find no better aid than this new treasure." -Michael Allen, Associate Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando
