Abstract:

Offers a thorough and instructive analysis of love in the Bible -- a topic that the author believes has been neglected and misinterpreted by most Biblical scholars. He is particularly concerned with eliminating the cultural and personal biases he finds in many interpretations of love in the Bible. Striving for a truly Biblical interpretation, he scrupulously examines the various Hebrew and Greek forms of the word in both the Old and New Testaments, concluding that love is the basis of God's dealing with men and that Christians ought to demonstrate more authentic Biblical love within and without the Christian community.
