To the extent that God So Loved… presents insightful and easy-to-approach essays on several important points of Christianity, the book accomplishes its stated goals.  Novices to the religion can certainly come away from this book with a solid sense that the Christian God is a benevolent force in the world and that Jesus Christ is their personal link to that divine presence.  More knowledgeable practitioners of the faith can also find guidance and inspiration in the author's exploration of his own faith journey and the extensive learning he brings to his subject. - Diane Taylor,  Forward Clarion Reviews


I do not recall ever reading a book that built such an easy bridge between the scholarly way in which you provide so many footnotes and the straight forward, almost conversational type of dialogue that constitutes the text.  It is easy to read, and one can pursue the background to whatever extent one might wish, from not bothering with the supplementary footnotes to studying them carefully and moving into interesting research before proceeding to the next thought.  -​Anonymous


A succinct but thorough analysis of the Christian faith that raises thought-provoking questions in a personable voice. - ​Kirkus Reviews


Ink offers a thorough probe into the words of the verse, including an insightful retelling of the Gospels for context.  He deconstructs its words and phrases to find the engaging subjects they represent by blending historical references, personal anecdotes, biblical analysis, and figures of popular culture.  The components of the verse - including "God," "the world," "believes in him" - become springboards to discuss a myriad of issues and ideas pertaining to modern Christianity.  In the section on the phrase "his one and only Son," which covers both notions of parenthood and Jesus as "a historical figure," Ink shows his true powers as a researcher, bringing together information from varied sources and making it all accessible to a wide audience.  He often shows skill at filtering complexities and making them relatable.  He often inserts clever takes on classic ideas, as when he refers to John as having been a "strange desert creature" before finding Christ, or when he breaks down the complicated theological study of sin into layman terms.  - Kirkus Reviews
