Abstract
Love is one of the cornerstones of Christianity. In order for Christians to build ethics and values based on love, love must be discussed on a theological level. Traditionally, the Christian perspective on love has been a split one, distinguishing between human love and the love of God. Theories relating to the differences between these have made up the foundation upon which many people base their view on love from a Christian standpoint.
This essay is based on a comparative text study of three theologians (Vincent Brümmer, Cristina Grenholm and Werner G. Jeanrond) and their theories on the subject of love from a relational aspect, which, in contrast to older theories, aims to unite rather than to divide. According to these authors, love... (More)

According to these authors, love is found first and foremost within the so called intimate relationships, and the focus of the essay lies with three of those: the relationship God – man, the erotic partnership and the motherhood relationship. The text will also take a look at the consequences for Christian ethical and moral values carried by these relational theories. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Kärleken är en grundnorm inom kristendomen. För att som kristen kunna bygga en etik och värdegrund baserad på kärlek, måste kärleken diskuteras på ett teologiskt plan. Traditionellt sett har synen på kärleken inom kristendomen varit delad. Man har talat om mänsklig kärlek och Guds kärlek. Teorier kring skillnaden mellan dessa har legat som grund för många människors syn på kärleken ur en kristen aspekt.
Denna uppsats bygger på ett komparativt textstudium av tre teologers (Vincent Brümmer, Cristina Grenholm och Werner G. Jeanrond) uppfattning om kärleken ur en relationell aspekt, som i motsats till tidigare teorier strävar efter att förena och inte skilja åt. De anser främst att kärleken finns i de s.k. intima relationerna, och... (More)

De anser främst att kärleken finns i de s.k. intima relationerna, och uppsatsens fokus ligger på tre av dessa: relationen Gud – människan, den erotiska parrelationen och moderskapsrelationen. Uppsatsen tar även upp konsekvenserna för kristendomens etisk-moraliska värdegrunder som anammandet av dessa relationella teorier medför. (Less)
