The pioneering scholar and author of Food and Faith and Living the Sabbath
asserts that Christianity has slid off its rightful foundation, arguing
that the faith only makes sense and can only be expressed in a healthy
way if it seen as based on love, with a mission of training others in
the way of love.
It’s often said that God is love, yet his message
of compassion and caring for others is often overshadowed by the
battles dividing us politically, culturally, and religiously. Why does
Christianity matter if it isn’t about love? asks Duke University
professor of Theology and Ecology Norman Wirzba.
The Way of Love
invites readers to experience Christianity that is centered on love.
Extensive theological training cannot replace the way of love that
transforms and connects each of us to God and the faith, Wirzba
contends. Interweaving illuminating testimonials, historical references,
and Scripture, he reveals how love allows us to move into the fullness
of life; when we do not love we lose our faith. “To fail to love,” he
reminds us, “is to lose God.”
