This volume collects together articles, which engage a variety of themes related to human and divine love. The title of this book "apprehending love" employs the notion of apprehension and especially its medieval background. For example, Martin Luther built his understanding of justification around this concept, which, on the one hand, refers to intellectual comprehension but, on the other hand, means becoming one with the object itself. In faith, Christ becomes not only the outward object of our faith, but its proper subject. In a similar way when we love someone or something, we are transformed according to the object of our love.
