Love is His Meaning: Understanding the Teaching of Jesus [9780281077632]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

In Love Is His Meaning, Keith Ward explores the various figures of speech and images that Jesus used, and finds they are all ways of expressing and evoking the self-giving love of God, manifested supremely in Jesus' life. They communicate spiritual truths, often not in a literal but in a poetic way. They encourage us to take our own moral decisions with sensitivity and care for others. They show that God's love will never abandon anyone, and that it extends to everyone in the world without exception. And they promise a fulfilment of our hopes for a just and peaceable world that surpasses anything we might describe or imagine.Putting aside presentations of Jesus' teachings that focus on a literalist, authoritarian, legalistic, judgmental and divisive interpretation, the author shows that what remains is the Gospel of a divine love that is stronger than death, and is the only power that can and will redeem our broken and disordered world.


AUTHOR: Keith Ward, FBA is Professorial Research Fellow at Heythrop College, London. He was formerly Regius Professor of Divinity at the University of Oxford and is one of the world's most distinguished theologians.
