Accosted by means of hatred and dwelling out a depressing life in dust position, we people have attempted and didn't locate the resource of affection. Many philosophies of affection have proved powerless in pleasing our desire for this natural and real factor. One after one other, the world's religions fail to light up its truth and sweetness. all of the whereas, the overpowering presence of evil has pressured love into the shadows of elusiveness. yet in the course of the barrage of makes an attempt to give an explanation for love's resource, it's the Christian God by myself who has introduced that means, price, and everlasting value to this oft-misunderstood advantage. it's the Christian God by myself whose divine and excellent love was once published in all its elegance within the go of Jesus Christ. In Leaving airborne dirt and dust position, Jonah Haddad explores a mess of philosophies and religions whose incorrect debts of affection needs to finally yield to the reality of Christianity. This considerate and demanding apologetic offers a transparent case for the real God of affection.
"If real love exists, it should have a transcendent and private resource. How can that resource be most sensible defined? no longer, Haddad argues, via the worldviews of naturalism, pantheism, or a few theistic religions. Love's top and in basic terms ultimate clarification is Christian theism. Haddad's argument is obvious, precise, rational, and compelling. priceless for each evangelist, apologist, or biblically literate Christian."

"While people converse of affection, yearn for romance, supply love, obtain love, and feature their hearts damaged (and holiday different hearts) by way of the manifold betrayals of affection, the actual fact of affection is usually unexplained or (worse but) defined away by way of philosophies that can't undergo its bittersweet weight. Haddad, even though, doesn't scale down from this daunting job, yet relatively marshals the theological and philosophical assets required to set forth a compelling case that in simple terms the Christian imaginative and prescient of life can provide love its right which means, price, and significance--even (or specially) amidst all of the tears, blood, and fears of a global 'east of Eden.'"
