Love Human and Divine PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Love Human and Divine free pdf Christians have long tried to separate eros and agape--eros being the more passionate form of love and agape being the "holy" one. Countryman argues that this is an over-interpretation of the linguistic differences of the original Greek, and that there can be no difference between the two. In this important book, Countryman explores how God's passion and our passion meet, in communion with one another, and in community. Many Christians are uncomfortable with the idea of passion, but cannot dispense with it given that the Song of Songs is about God's passion- this book explores how God's passion and our passion meet. Countryman's star in the UK is rising after writing Dirt, Sea and Greed for the Canterbury Press, and a column on the Church Times. His compassionate approach to human sexuality is winning him many admirers.
