    Mr.Boyd is certainly in love with "love" and acceptance. Will he love his children in the same way as he wants us to love others? Would he let his children walk in the path of an oncomming car, because out of love, he does not want to tell them the truth? The truth is Mr. Boyd that God loves the sinner, but hates sin. Ask Jesus to forgive you and come into your heart and you will be saved. He shows us the truth in His
    word. Get back to God's word.

    I love the title of this book. It provoked my imagination right away.

    Though the early chapters of Boyd's book were a bit too academic in tone for me, I knew it was foundational in laying out his argument for the supremacy of God's love. Boyd is actually not being a renegade radical in this regard. There have always been amongst us those who would remind us that God is love (from Mike Bickle to Bernard of Clairvaux and quite a few in between). I have no disagreement with this message at all. As for those readers who think this message is a distortion of God's character, well, Jesus got in trouble all the time because of how loving he was to the wrong kind of people.

    If you are looking for a book to gain greater insight into the loving nature of God this is a good one to add to your library.

    As for Boyd's argument that gluttons are welcome in church, but homosexuals are not, I think he's simply telling it like it is. I think Boyd's message was clear : we've let judgementalism (religion) stifle our identity to be lovers of God and lovers of one another.

    Even if one does not fully agree with Dr. Boyd's full premise, this book will certainly make one stop and think. How loving are we being in this body of Christ? How welcoming are we to all men as Jesus asked us and demonstrated for us to be? I certainly will read this book again. As I read, I began to get a glimmer(dare I say from the Holy Spirit?)of how much I judge and lock out others from the experience of being in Christ. I feel this is an important book and if humbly read, can draw one closer to the life of the Trinity.
