Accosted by way of hatred and dwelling out a depressing lifestyles in airborne dirt and dust position, we people have attempted and did not locate the resource of affection. Many philosophies of affection have proved powerless in pleasant our desire for this natural and actual factor. One after one other, the world's religions fail to light up its fact and wonder. all of the whereas, the overpowering presence of evil has pressured love into the shadows of elusiveness. yet in the course of the barrage of makes an attempt to give an explanation for love's resource, it's the Christian God on my own who has introduced which means, worth, and everlasting value to this oft-misunderstood advantage. it's the Christian God on my own whose divine and excellent love was once printed in all its beauty within the move of Jesus Christ. In Leaving dust position, Jonah Haddad explores a mess of philosophies and religions whose incorrect bills of affection needs to eventually yield to the reality of Christianity. This considerate and demanding apologetic provides a transparent case for the real God of affection.

"If real love exists, it should have a transcendent and private resource. How can that resource be most sensible defined? no longer, Haddad argues, by means of the worldviews of naturalism, pantheism, or a couple of theistic religions. Love's top and in simple terms ultimate rationalization is Christian theism. Haddad's argument is obvious, designated, rational, and compelling. beneficial for each evangelist, apologist, or biblically literate Christian."
--James W. Sire

"While people communicate of affection, yearn for romance, provide love, obtain love, and feature their hearts damaged (and holiday different hearts) through the manifold betrayals of affection, the actual fact of affection is frequently unexplained or (worse but) defined away by way of philosophies that can't undergo its bittersweet weight. Haddad, notwithstanding, doesn't cut back from this daunting job, yet quite 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 that means, price, and significance--even (or specifically) amidst all of the tears, blood, and fears of an international 'east of Eden.'"
