IN THIS UPLIFTING new book, author Stephen G. Post explores the mysteries and the wonder of Godly love—the all-important love that is simultaneously personal, unconditional, unlimited, generative and omnipresent. The title alludes to Isaiah 35:1, to the way in which Godly love is said to plant a rose in our hearts precisely when we feel most like a dry desert with no more love of our own to give. We all have deserts in life, so we all need Godly love. Without it, the downward slide to cynicism, hostility and cool indifference can be all too easy. These meditations on the subject will nurture our confidence in the power of a love that is greater than our own.
