Description

Details

Post-modern relationships are characterised by Zygmunt Bauman in his book, Liquid Love, as lacking commitment. They are fluid, untrustworthy, unlikely to last. In contrast to this conception of love, the Bible proposes a love that is solid. It is meant to endure all vicissitudes: love never ends. If God is love, and we are made for love, then love may be described in all its dimensions: length, height, and depth. Solid love is greater than ourselves. It requires concentration, thought, effort, willpower, motivation, and application. Learning to love is the task of a lifetime. It is a challenge to grow into maturity. It is the journey to wholeness. It is the struggle of unselfishness over self-centeredness. It is hard, for our self-absorption, our ego, our sinfulness, has such a tight hold on us. This book is meant to plough up the hardened soil of our disposition to enable the seed of love to find room to take root and grow. To help us, and guide us, in this task, we will look at various descriptions of love, and in particular St. Paul's incomparable hymn of love in 1 Corinthians 13. By viewing love from every aspect, and reflecting on its claims, and its promises, we may, with the indwelling power of Christ, become more solid in our love. We will also be referencing Soren Kierkegaard's, Works of Love. Questions are provided at the end of each chapter for individual reflection and group discussion. Application is made to the issues raised by contemporary culture and challenges to being able to love others.
