Dr. Nijay Gupta | MATS Open Session
What would it actually mean for our theology, our ministries, and our lives if love was the center and heart of our theology? Too often, we approach theology from an abstract and distant perspective. But time and time again, the biblical writers point readers to the affections of God and a divine love that will not let go. How could this revitalize and drive the church today?
