A candid, wise, and warmly personal book in which Lewis explores the possibilities and problems of the four basic kinds of human love- affection, friendship, erotic love, and the love of God. Immensely worthwhile for its simplicity...a rare and memorable book (Sydney J. Harris).

"From one our most revered and beloved writesr and thinkers comesthis wise and warmly personal book reflecting on the four basic kinds of human love-- affection, friendship, Eros, charity. C.S.Lewis explores the promise and the perils of love between parents and children; the love that builds between truefriends through mutual respect; the dedication it takes to fulfill our visions oferotic love and partnership; and the love of and for God thatdeepens all others. He considers questions of sex, possessiveness, jealousy, pride, sentimentality, good and bad manners, and theneed for more laughter. Love's rewards come with risks, he cautions, butwe must take them, and remember that we are seeking to be awakened, to find an Appreciative love through which "all things are possible."

"With a love for beauty, wonder, and magic . . . he speaks to us with all the power and life-changing force of a Plato, a Dante, and a Bunyan."
