How desperately we all need to know, deep within, that we are loved by God ... It is a chaotic age and I find my soul longing more and more for the shelter of God’s love and the anchorage of his word.
Pete Greig, 24-7 Prayer

You are loved. A deceptively simple phrase.

Yet this is the answer to the deepest longing of every heart, with the potential to change life in every possible way. It is the most important thing about you. So what does it really mean to be loved by, and to love, God himself?

Drawing on the Apostle Paul’s epistle to the Romans, Jonny Gumbel explores the theme of divine love and how truly powerful it is. Coming at a time when many of us feel battered and bruised by the uncertainties of life, this compelling book brims with affirmation and hope as it invites us to dive into (or perhaps rediscover) the greatest love story ever told …

What does it really mean to be loved, loved by God? Can we even begin to comprehend it? And what difference does it make to our lives? 

It changes absolutely everything, argues Jonny Gumbel. His fresh perspective on the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Romans comes at a time when many feel lonely and bewildered, and are reeling from broken or strained relationships, disappointment with the church family and the loss of loved ones. A surprisingly honest and vulnerable book, it is written with gentle humour and great clarity, and brims with reassurance and hope as this talented new writer invites us to rediscover the greatest love story ever told.
