Introducing the Edward Carnell Library (Nine Titles Listed Inside)
The Kingdom of Love and the Pride of Life is indeed about love. Carnell evidences deep insight into what love is and what it is not. He richly develops Jesus's statement, "Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven." He affirms that happy children have intuitive knowledge of the nature of love, which is kindness and truth. They have a God-given ability to see through hypocrisy and recognize the good person. This book is an invaluable exposition of the biblical doctrine of love.

"Edward John Carnell was--in my estimation--the brightest and the best of the neo-evangelical leaders. He was a courageous thinker who was not afraid to think new thoughts in the service of biblical orthodoxy. The Carnell Library is a gift to today's evangelical movement." --Richard J. Mouw President, Fuller Seminary
"[Carnell's] fertile mind and ready pen blazed fresh theological trails as he sought to defend and proclaim the Christian faith as a world and life view." --Dr. David Allan Hubbard Former President of Fuller Theological Seminary
"In this welcome collection of Carnell books, we are offered an inside view of a radical shift in American religious thinking -- the emergence of twentieth-century evangelicalism out of Protestant fundamentalism." --Rudolph Nelson, author of The Making and Unmaking of an Evangelical Mind: The Case of Edward Carnell
