9780006207993: The Four Loves

Lewis' work on the nature of love divides love into four categories; Affection, Friendship, Eros and Charity. The first three come naturally to humanity. Charity, however, the Gift-love of God, is divine, and without this supernatural love, the natural loves become distorted and even dangerous.

Review:

"A rare and memorable book." --"Saturday Review"""""The Four Loves" deserves to become a minor classic as a modern mirror of our souls, a mirror of the virtues and failings of human loving." --"New York Times Book Review""" "[Lewis] has never written better. Nearly every page scintillates with observations which are illuminating, provocative and original." --"Church Times" "What is interesting about these chapters is the extent to which a non-believer can follow the argument and receive enlightenment ... Lewis has a keen eye, a large measure of human sympathy, wit, and a command of simple words ... By writing so well and so perceptively about 'natural' human conduct, Lewis makes the strongest case for examining his conclusions with respect. He is writing, presumably, for the unconverted as well as for Christians, and whatever the former may believe or disbelieve about God they are persuaded that he could only exist as a culmination in absolute terms of their deepest moral convictions."--"Times Literary Supplement"
