IS GOD LOVE?
Searching for traces in the Bible and in tradition
Hansjürgen Verweyen is a theologian. He spent many years working in the USA and at the University GH Essen. From 1984 to 2004 he’s been Professor of Fundamental Theology at the University of Freiburg.
Is God really love?
Even when he mercilessly drowned his creatures in the flood?
Even if he asks of Abraham to sacrifice his only son?
Even if he exposes Job to Satan’s sadistic games?
And what about the Apocalypse? Is the God of Love not suppressed by a cosmic judge who stages untold horror scenarios at the end of time?
Can God be love, even when he sends Jesus to die on the cross as an expiatory sacrifice?
Hansjürgen Verweyen takes the reader on an exciting search for clues in Scripture and tradition after the God, who is love, and leads him/her time and again to surprising insights.
