Exploring God's Passion for Us
Have you ever been loved with "skimpy love"? Or has your love for someone else seemed to shrivel? Enter the world of God's extravagant love: It is beyond measure. Careful study of God's Word, along with delving into ancient customs and symbols from Biblical times, helps us understand His passionate love for all He has created.
Sometimes, extravagance is found in the simple things of daily life.
We usually think of "extravagance" as spending excessively on material goods. So to use that term for an itinerant teacher who
had only one change of clothes and depended on others for food and a place to lay His head seems a stretch.
Yet Jesus was the most extravagant person who ever lived. To understand that, we have to revise our notion of "extravagance," focusing on intangible qualities like thoughtfulness, caring, and humility.
In this remarkably imaginative book, Carole Engle Avriett guides you through the agriculture, diet, and commerce of Jesus's culture to shed new light on God's nature. Reading it, you will gain a deeper understanding of God's love--a love of astonishing extravagance.
