Better lovers: the shape of love in higher education — Dr. Claudia Beversluis

The importance of developing a Christian mind in this emerging world, according to Dr. Beversluis, is to “live a lover’s life.” Love, she proposed, is “our purpose, our method, and our primary outcome for Christian higher education.” So the central purpose in teaching, scholarship, and administration in Christian higher education is love for God and love for the world which God has given. Love, then, is not merely an emotion or subjective feeling, but also a life orientation, a way of being in the world.
