Question: Is God's love unconditional? Answer: The majority of Christians would say "yes." Question: In order to save us, did Jesus have to live a life of obedience to God's law? Answer: The majority of Christians would say "yes." Therein lies the problem. If God's love is unconditional, then there is no reason for Christ's sacrifice, because under the umbrella of "unconditional love" it doesn't matter what we do, or whether we sin or not, for God's love is without conditions. What Wondrous Love delves into the controversial topic of unconditional love, examining the history of the concept, its infiltration into the theology of the church, and its dangerous effects. Although some may feel that author David Thiele downplays God's love, in reality he points readers to a truer understanding of God's love and His nature as revealed in Scripture and expounded upon in the Spirit of Prophecy, reminding all that Jesus came to this world to fulfill every condition of the righteous law of love. In so doing, we are granted the opportunity to overcome sin as Christ did and be reunited with our heavenly Father when Christ returns-What Wondrous Love, indeed! "This is must reading for anyone seeking a clear foundation for a biblically based and Ellen White confirmed teaching on salvation that upholds a 'responsible grace' version of 'righteousness by faith.'" Woodrow W. Whidden II, Emeritus Professor of Religion, Andrews University
