“A marvel of succinctness, this presentation is one of the best I have seen for initial direction in the faith once delivered to the Fathers.”

Dr. Paige Patterson

Ted Rivera unpacks the mystery of God’s will with a simple yet profound look at what Jesus called the two greatest commandments: loving God and loving others.

Filled with examples drawn from everyday life, Rivera’s book is practical and wise, a welcome primer for any student of the Bible wanting to deepen their understanding of how to follow Jesus rightly.

In the end, Rivera concludes, Jesus isn’t looking merely for consistency in obedience but for obedience in love. Indeed, all our good deeds “are utterly worthless if they are disconnected from a heart that beats not only with love for our God, but also with love for our fellow human beings.”

The Heart of Love urges readers toward a deepened faith and a greater imitation of the God who is love.
