About-

In this insightful work, the author explores the fundamental Christian virtue of 'agape.' Spicq's genius is the way he combines fine linguistic analysis, exegesis, and theological insight. The three volumes cover most of the New Testament books:

Volume 1: 'Agape in the Synoptic Gospels'
Volume 2: 'Agape in the Epistles of St. Paul, the
Acts of the Apostles, the Epistles of
St. James, St. Peter, and St. Jude'
Volume 3: 'Agape in the Gospel, Epistles and
Apocalypse of St. John'

"In the writings of St. John there is one aspect of 'agape' which is brought out in singular relief--the aspect of manifestation and proof. Most of St. John's uses of the word should be translated 'manifest love,' 'love which proves itself,' or 'the economy, the development of the divine love.'"
--from the Introduction
