This chapter argues that while God is defined in manifold ways, only love is an appropriate name for the divine because it alone does not reduce God’s transcendence. God transcends us as best lover. God loves to the point of death, even those who do not return such love. God loves without measure. The highest summons of transcendence is to love unconditionally. We are called to love as God loves.

Keywords:   Christ, God, love, transcendence, unconditioned
