Amor Dei, “love of God” increases 3 questions: How will we be aware of God is love? How will we adventure love of God? How loose are we to like God? This ebook offers 3 different types 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 referring to God’s love and loose will. within the sixteenth-century the Italian humanist, Gasparo Contarini introduces the idea of “divine amplitude” to illustrate how God’s goodness is manifested within the human agent. Pierre de Bérulle, Guillaume Gibieuf, and Nicolas Malebranche convey connections with Contarini within the seventeenth-century controversies touching on unfastened will and divine love. in line with the unfastened will dispute, the Scottish thinker, William Chalmers, bargains 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.”
