Insightful, poetic, and challenging. Kevin O'Neil, CSsR, Associate Professor, Systematic and Moral Theology, Washington Theological Union
In God is Love, Anthony Kelly, CSsR, provides a reflection on divine Mystery, clearly and simply written, that will leave you breathless. This book should be in the hands of anyone who has faith, or who wants to have more faith.Bill Huebsch, Director, PastoralPlanning.com, Author of Grace: God's Greatest Gift
This is a beautifully written, pastorally attuned, and gently thought-provoking book. A wide range of readers will enjoy the clear and accessible language, with minimal technical terminology, together with the lightness of touch with which Kelly treats the themes. While robustly orthodox, this creative experiment in communicating the essence of Christian faith will prove a most useful resource for adult education, faith development and introductory theology programs, inspiring its readers to freshly own, live and further explore their faith.Professor Anne Hunt, FACE, OAM, Executive Dean, Faculty of Theology and Philosophy, Australian Catholic University
In a manner soundly doctrinal, deeply spiritual, and engagingly contemplative, God Is Love penetrates beyond the left -right culture wars and beneath the surface of things into a fresh appreciation of the lavishness of God s love. This book is truly a gift. Bishop Richard J. Malone, ThD, STL, Chair, U.S. bishops Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis "

He cites the following 7 ways God's love is personified: Father, Son, Cross, Resurrection, Holy Spirit, Church, and Eternal Life. Chapter 3, THE SON: LOVE AS SELF-GIVING, is perhaps the best in the book.
Only one small squabble I have with Kelly's book.. he mentions a couple of times that the universe is "billions" of years old. The fact is, we don't know for sure how old it is. A case could be made in fact, for it being much younger than that.
Overall though, an excellent resource and Bible study.
