  • Jason Lepöjarvi

    Dr. Jason Lepojärvi is a scholar-in-residence at Regent College for the 2016-17 academic year. His current work is a post-doctoral research project on the theology of love, titled Idolatry: Catholic and Protestant Perspectives.

    Jason, his wife and their two daughters moved to Vancouver in July 2016. Prior to this, they lived in Oxford, where Jason worked as the junior research fellow in theology at St Benet's Hall. His doctoral thesis God Is Love but Love Is Not God: C.S. Lewis’s Theology of Love (2015) critically analyzed C.S. Lewis's position in and contribution to the debate on love ('agape vs. eros') that preoccupied much of 20th-century Protestant and Roman Catholic thought.
