Conversatio Divina

Love through the Lens of Science and Faith

Dallas Willard often said that love is simply acting on what is good for another. And, he reminds, “the first act of love is always the giving of attention.”

This week we asked one of our senior fellows of the Martin Institute to reflect on the importance of love and relationship. Andrea Gurney, a psychologist and professor at Westmont College has recently written a book on love and relationship, Reimagining Your Love Story: Biblical and Psychological Practices for Healthy Relationships.

We hope you will read her reflections and that they point you to her book which crescendos with descriptions of the work needed for love to permeate our relationships.
