About-

God’s Love Story: A Canonical Telling traces the metaphorical theme of God’s love relationship(s) that spans the entire Bible. God lovingly pursues humankind in relationship that is robustly satisfying and salvific. Like many relationships, God’s love story with God’s people is both transcendent and tragic, messy and mercy-filled, raw and redemptive. Not merely a series of events relegated to the past, God’s love story is an ongoing, present phenomenon—a salvation-relationship into which God invites all peoples to (collectively) be the spouse of God.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“In this book, Spoelstra mines both Old and New Testaments to show how the searching and saving love of God woos and wins his chosen bride. He convincingly shows how the narrative of Scripture is encapsulated in the stages of betrothal, marriage, Israel’s unfaithfulness, divorce, and (re) marriage. I highly recommend this work that is full of biblical knowledge and wisdom.”

—Gordon L. Isaac, Berkshire Professor of Church History and Advent Christian Studies, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary



“Spoelstra weaves the scriptural marriage metaphor, the nature of God’s pursuit of and relationship with us, together with well-placed contemporary relational and cultural illustrations, resulting in a strong presentation of his premise that a love story is one primary lens through which to read the meta-narrative of Scripture.”

—Clayton Blackstone, retired pastor and author of Meet Me for Breakfast, Eggs, Bacon and a Side of Daily Bread
