The ethics of the Bible can be summarized in one word: love. Love became flesh in the person of Jesus–in the narrative of his life, his teachings, his death, and his resurrection. Jesus was the "Word of God" (John 1:1).
Splendors of Godly Love brings a fresh perspective on age-old Christian concepts to guide us through life.
Chris van der Merwe is a literary scholar who carefully analyzes biblical texts and explores the richness of their content. He reflects on seven Christian values and explains how faith, hope, righteousness, truth, humility, and joy are all connected to the central Christian virtue of love.
While talking about some of the tough choices that present-day Christians have to make, and the emptiness that so many of us experience, he delves deep into the truths of the biblical texts and shares with his readers some of the wonderful wisdom of poets and writers from all over the world.
He argues that the emptiness of our existence can be filled with meaning only if we seek to reflect the splendor of God’s love in our daily lives.
