God is Love: A Biblical and Systematic Theology is a unique theology, not one that focuses primarily on abstract doctrines, but one that focuses something every person understands: love. Particularly, this book focuses on God as love, as he expresses himself to us in Jesus Christ and through his actions in the Bible. Each theme is united in its relation to divine Love.
The theme of love is traced categorically throughout the Bible and includes an examination of God's own self-love, his love for creation, and his ultimate demonstration of love for humanity in his death on the cross. But this last element is not considered until Bray makes a thorough examination of what the Bible says about those, humans and angels, who rejected God's love. The cross overcomes this rejection, and it is in this respect that Bray combines both a biblical and systematic approach to a full-fledged theology rooted in the biblical concept of love.
