In Take Five this week, Nigerian minister and RZIM adjunct Hassan John draws on the words of Scripture, apologetics, and the context of West Africa to frame the power and depth of God’s transforming love through the lens of the Christian faith.

Love is a command, not just a feeling. Somehow, in the romantic world of music and theater we have made love to be what it is not. We have so mixed it with beauty and charm and sensuality and contact that we have robbed it of its higher call of cherishing and nurturing. - Ravi Zacharias
