Most people are familiar with the Ďlove chapterí of the Bible, 1 Corinthians 13, yet Phil Ryken still has something new to say. He draws on the earthly life and ministry of Jesus to illustrate Paulís several statements about what love is and isnít. These aspects of love are then illuminated chronologically through the story of Christís advent, teaching, miracle working, sufferings, crucifixion, death, resurrection and ascension.
Jesus never does anything without love. His love is everything the love chapter says that love should be. It is patient with sinners and kind to strangers. It does not envy or boast, but offers itself in humble service. It does not insist on its own way, but submits to the Father. It is able to forgive, trust, hope and persevere.
This approach highlights the crucial truth that we are able to love only because Christ first loved us in this particularly profound, very real, and transformative manner.
Loving the Way Jesus Loves by Phil Ryken was published by IVP in February 2012 and is our 27829th best seller. The ISBN for Loving the Way Jesus Loves is 9781844745654.
Ryken combines an incredible knowledge of scripture with a knowledge of classical and modern culture, and a breadth and depth of reading in historic and current Christian literature?all the while keeping Scripture in its central place. This is a cutting, clear and Christ-exalting sweep on one of the most majestic chapters in all of scripture: 1 Corinthians 13.
You will come away from his book softened, mellowed, calmed, entranced, even inspired, and all by an eloquently stunning exposition of love. I found myself humming simple choruses of love and worship back to Jesus while reading this. IVP are to be congratulated on possibly their most attractive title to date in format, font, styling and artwork. Heart searching but truly faith affirming and a rare title that will thrill you with all that Christ means! A top class pursuit of love!
ĎAs usual, Phil Ryken hides his deep scholarship behind readable prose. But the footnotes reveal that he draws on some of the most penetrating scholarly treatments of St Paulís text. He combines all that with pastoral experience and insight. The result is a masterful, accessible exposition of this great chapter.í Tim Keller
ĎJesus said, "By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." But what does it mean to love others? By looking at the love of Jesus in the light of I Corinthians 13, Phil Ryken gives us the biblical answer. Loving the Way Jesus Loves is surely one of the most heart searching books I have ever read. This book is must-reading for all who want to grow in Christian love.í Jerry Bridges
ĎThere are many expositions of 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter, but not many where at every point the preacher shows how Godís love in Christ Jesus is the very best exposition and truest embodiment of love. Unpacking the love chapter through this prism, Phil Ryken lends great clarity to Paulís meditation on love and shows how such love drives us back to renewed adoration of Christ. Reflecting on how Christ, by his life and death, makes 1 Corinthians 13 leap from the page drives home the frequent lovelessness of our own lives, strips bare all notions of love that are little more than sentimental twaddle, and provides a concrete robustness to love that is part and parcel of trusting and following Christ.í D. A. Carson
