Three of the most formidable words in the English language are brought together with a clear and fresh view on who God is and how He has loved mankind since the beginning of time. God: the only perfect one, all-powerful, creator of the universe. Is: a state of being that has always been and always will be. Love: the most powerful and euphoric force in the universe, which has caused nations to rise and fall and people to sacrifice their very lives in its pursuit. God Is Love-Love Is God moves past the clichés of God and love, and it takes a deep look at the God of the Bible and at fifteen principles of love that helps the reader understand how he or she is loved and can love this way.
In God Is Love, Love Is God Domingo Cabrera provides an enlightening and practical look at a
Scripture passage that is essential for the effective functioning of Christ's Church. In his exposition
of 1 Corinthians 13, Cabrera goes beyond the typical husband/wife applications and appropriately
applies the passage's teachings to the interpersonal dynamic that should characterize the life of the
Church. Using concrete, everyday illustrations and examples, he combines sound biblical theology
with life lessons in a manner that is both engaging and life changing. Anyone desiring to enhance the
"body life" of a given local assembly will benefit greatly from this book.

John, the beloved disciple, has given us three A=B definitions of God: "God is spirit" (John 4:24);
"God is light" (1 John 1:5); and "God is love" (1 John 4:8, 16). Domingo Cabrera has chosen the third
definition as the title of his book and expounded it in terms of the central section of the apostle
Paul's great love chapter (1 Corinthians 13:4-8b), phrase by phrase. The result is a theological and
devotional feast, an engaging page-turner that is both enlightening (convincing) and compelling
(convicting). Reading Cabrera's volume will bless the lives of all who are willing to take the time to
give it the attention it deserves.
