How Do You Explain a Love That Has No Explanation? What will happen if you let it touch your heart? God loves you not because you are flawless, not because you are a perfect person, but just because you are. In Love Beyond Reason, John Ortberg reveals the God you've longed to encounter: a Father head-over-heels in love with you, his child, and intensely committed to your highest joy.

A very well-presented book about God's love, with interesting anecdotes and examples. A nice contrast to Philip Yancey and Brennan Manning on similar topics. Thought-provoking and very readable.

Definitely recommended; intended for believers or those on the fringe of the church, but could be of interest to others.

Re-read five years after first reading, and again eight years later. Enjoyed more each time.
