Many people search all their lives for true love. But before we can find that real, transforming love we all long for and were created by God to need, we must first understand what true love is.

This Is Love directs us to the best authority on the topic, through the example of God himself. Each chapter highlights a significant aspect of God’s love as demonstrated in a different period of biblical history and ends with study questions to help us further our understanding.

After learning the character of divine love, we then see how God’s love is revealed in our own lives—especially by the love we show to others.
