       Throughout history in philosophical and theological treatise, love has been discussed, examined, and many have attempted to define it. In the Western tradition since the time of Christ, understanding love has become even more complicated as it was established a the central co-mission of Christian moral action. Indeed, as Christ said to his apostles all the law hangs on the first two commands to love God, and your neighbor as yourself.'

But in none of this has the concept of love ever been adequately defined. Some justification exists for this lack of particularity: can love really be defined? Would we want to define it without ambiguity, even if we could? Probably not. But we do know we ought to love. In Defining Love: A Philosophical Scientific, and Theological Engagement Thomas Oord explores the concept of love as it has been articulated throughout history and in the Western Tradition, but also unveils what science is saying about this enigmatic subject. He also bridges the gap, as it were, between the humanities and the sciences by attempting to articulate a full theology of love in light of the hard and social sciences.

The result is a stirring account of how we can understand love in a scientific age, as well as how we can se the real incontestable difference Christian love can make in an increasingly isolated and impersonal world.
