Amor Dei, “love of God” increases 3 questions: How will we understand God is love? How will we event love of God? How loose are we to like God? This e-book offers 3 varieties of love, worldly, religious, and divine to appreciate God’s love. The paintings starts off with Augustine’s Confessions highlighting his Manichean and Neoplatonic sessions sooner than his conversion to Christianity. Augustine’s war of words with Pelagius anticipates the unresolved disputes bearing on God’s love and unfastened will. within the sixteenth-century the Italian humanist, Gasparo Contarini introduces the inspiration of “divine amplitude” to illustrate how God’s goodness is manifested within the human agent. Pierre de Bérulle, Guillaume Gibieuf, and Nicolas Malebranche express connections with Contarini within the seventeenth-century controversies referring to loose will and divine love. in keeping with the unfastened will dispute, the Scottish thinker, William Chalmers, deals his answer. Cornelius Jansen relentlessly asserts his anti-Pelagian interpretation of Augustine stirring up extra controversy. John Norris, Malebranche’s English disciple, exchanges his perspectives with Mary Astell and Damaris Masham. within the culture of Cambridge Platonism, Ralph Cudworth conveys a God who “sweetly governs.” The association of sections represents the affection of God in ascending-descending hobbies demonstrating that, “human love is inseparable from divine love.”
