A Clear, Biblical Picture of God’s Unconditional Love for His Children

Many believers know that “God is love.” But whether through cultural lies, false beliefs, or years of mulling over the tragedies of the world, it may be difficult to see the true, steadfast, and unchanging love of the Father. Thankfully the Bible offers a clear picture of what God’s love looks like and how, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, believers experience his affection for themselves. 

Taking an accessible approach to biblical theology, author Sam Storms explores Scripture to address what God’s love is and what it isn’t. Drawing insights from the Psalms and the life of Jesus, Storms covers God’s sovereignty and the saving power, longevity, and sin-killing nature of his love. The Steadfast Love of the Lord breaks down obstacles that prevent believers from accepting biblical truths and challenges the cultural lies that hinder them from accepting God’s vast and unfathomable love.

  • Accessible: An introductory approach to biblical theology, this book is perfect for laypeople and thoughtful Christians 
  • Practical: Not only helps believers study the nature of God but helps them experience his affection for themselves 
  • Honest: From a biblical perspective, this book addresses the cultural lies of our age to explain what love is and what it isn’t
