An in-depth look at what the Bible teaches about love and how that love should transform us.

* * *

The title For the Love of the Lord has a double meaning-it refers both to the love God has for us and the love we have for God. But what is love? How does it make us act? How does it change us? In this book, author Nancy Ferguson sets out to free readers from preconceived notions by finding out what the Bible says about love.
By acting out love toward others, we learn more about what it really is and what it can do. As we learn more about the love that God lavishes on us, we mature in the love of the Lord. As we mature in that love, we love God and others more and more. Thus, Nancy demonstrates, love is a circle that spirals upward until we reach our final destination, where we shall spend eternity basking in the glories of heaven in God's presence. "My prayer," writes Nancy, "is that as you read this book, you will learn more of God's love and be drawn closer to the Source of the unlimited love lavished upon us daily, and that you will let that love transform your life into what God wants you to be."
In this back-to-basics study, Nancy shares her passion for the Bible and God's generous love.
