What is relational spirituality? How are insights from psychology and theology brought together for the basis of relational spiritual transformation? What’s at the heart of this new paradigm? How is the Trinity the basis for this theme? Does suffering and God’s love relate? Dr. Todd Hall spent over two decades working to develop a broad theory of Relational Spirituality. “Dear friends,” 1 John 4:11 says, “since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.”
