Does God Really Love Me?
Sometimes the bigger something is, the easier it is to forget. You may have heard all your life that God is love, but has the truth of that statement really sunk in?
In The Reckless Love of God, pastor and church planter Alex Early pulls you in close to ask if you've ever really considered what it means to say "Jesus loves me." God's love for us is real--he feels, knows, and even suffers on our behalf. Nothing will change your life, your goals, and your relationships faster than being captivated by this reality.
Whether you grew up as a Christian and have forgotten this essential truth, or if you're hearing it for the first time, you need to be reminded--and assured--of the simple, amazing, mind-blowing fact that God loves us.
"There is not a more powerful statement to the human heart than this: You are totally loved and fully accepted. If you want to grow in this truth and experience this reality, The Reckless Love of God is for you!"
Darrin Patrick, lead pastor of The Journey, St. Louis
"I can't think of anyone better to write a book on the love of God than Alex Early. His joy-filled relationship with Jesus is contagious. I'm thrilled that he's captured some of his theology and heart in this soul-filling book. I will be recommending it to both the religious and the irreligious for years to come."
Tony Merida, founding pastor of Imago Dei Church, associate professor of preaching at Southeastern Baptist Seminary, and author of Ordinary
"The reality that 'God is love' is too easily domesticated and kept at arm's length. In The Reckless Love of God, Alex relishes in the joy and adventure that takes place when the love of God takes possession of our hearts."
Justin S. Holcomb, Episcopal priest, professor of theology at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and author of On the Grace of God
