After receiving a 2016 diagnosis of cancer, the author began to ask: If he had time on earth to complete only one more dream, what would it be? Love: The Foundation of Christian Thought and Wisdom is the beginning of that answer. It is a hopeful work that invites Christians to embrace not just the theology of the Bible but the Christology as well. Noting that hard-edged theology often ends up closing circles and hearts, the author points towards a holy Word whose gentle, daily Christology asks us to open our hearts, warts and all, to God, ourselves, and others. Love highlights 1 Corinthians as the Bible's christological center in co-narrative with its Romans theological center. In so doing, it shines an unexpectedly simple but deep light on exactly what God is asking of us in the name of Christian love.
