I am still working on Love Wins. I have about a chapter or two remaining, and I should probably finish it today. But I doubt if I will have a good opportunity to sit down and write about it before Sunday or Monday, but we’ll see.

One key quote is from the second Mohler piece:
“We do not know who God is by knowing what love is. We understand love by knowing who God is.”
This is what we Calvinists mean when we talk about God-centered theology. God is the absolute standard of all that is good. He does not conform to a higher standard. Therefore, all that is good and right is determined in relation to his supremacy. I believe this way of understanding God is simply a corollary of understanding divine simplicity, but that is probably a topic that should wait for another post at another time.
