What does it mean to love someone?

This is a recorded lecture by theologian and public intellectual Miroslav Volf. Drawing on biblical themes and stories of The Good Samaritan and The Widow’s Offering, Professor Volf will speak to love’s generous practicality, its incomparable power to confer value, nobility, and beauty on others, and its active refusal to respect boundaries born of prejudice.

If you seek a fresh vision of love and its outworking in a society grappling with division and disenfranchisement, or if you desire a deeper understanding of what it means to love your neighbor as God’s Great Commandment exhorts, you will be in good company.
