THEO 4950: Love of Neighbor: Psychological and Theological Perspectives (2021-2022)

View all THEO classes

Aside from loving God, the hallmark of a Christ-filled life is to love one’s neighbor as oneself (Mark 12:31). Thus, spiritual formation should be evidenced by an increased depth and breadth of our love for others. Indeed, it is said that we will be recognized as Christians by our love for one another (John 13:35), but how do we know if we are truly growing in our love for others? It is one thing to say we love our neighbors, it is another for that truth to infiltrate the way that we think about and treat other people compared to ourselves. Using resources from theological anthropology and social psychology, this seminar will seek to answer the question, “How can we grow in love for our neighbors, as well as, ourselves?” May be repeated for credit up to 10 credits.
