God’s love is unconditional, right? Actually, God cares too much about us to be unconditional in his love for us. In Real Love: Better Than Unconditional? biblical counseling expert David Powlison explains that God’s love is both different from and better than unconditional love, with an agenda to radically change all who receive it. Because what we believe about his love impacts the way we receive and share it, Powlison paints a biblical picture of God’s transforming love. He shows how growing in our practical understanding of real love empowers us to turn our eyes away from lesser things and transforms the way we love God and other people.
