Human Relations is built on the summary of the commandments given by our Lord in Matthew 22:34–40. The theme, therefore, is love. In this course the agape concept is examined thoroughly and is applied to every kind of human relationship. Agape is first experienced when the “self” meets God and is then applied to the other relationships of human experience.
