"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."

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.'"
