In his classic book The Four Loves, Lewis describes the four basic kinds of human love—affection, friendship, erotic love, and the love of God. Since this is the only commercial recording of C. S. Lewis that is available today, fans of his writing will desire to add this impressive recording to their collection. While Lewis’s writings have impacted more evangelical Christians than perhaps any other writer, this audio product of the author’s reading of this classic book will undoubtedly expand the theological understanding of the nature of love to a much wider audience. He explores the love between parents and children, the love of friends, the love of men and women for each other, and the love of God that may enrich all love. He also goes in-depth into questions of sex, possessiveness, jealousy, pride, false sentimentality, manners in loving, and the need for more laughter between lovers. Lewis’s wise and candid reflections on the virtues and dangers of love draw on sources from Jane Austen to Saint Augustine. This recording features a new audio introduction and commentary by Charles Colson.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Hope Randall | 2/16/2014

    " An insightful and entertaining book on love, even for a non-Christian reader. I love Lewis's casual tone, his humor, and his earnest request for humanity not to take itself too seriously. I also felt inspired by his conviction that though love exposes us to risk, it is worth one worth taking. My favorite quote from the book: "The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell." "

    " I didn't enjoy this book as much as Lewis' others. It's not that he didn't write well, or give enough attention to the "four" loves, it's that I just didn't find it compelling. Some of his thoughts were excessive, also. It seems that every female I have asked about this book likes it. Not sure what it is, but just wasn't drawn to this book. "

    " I read this for an English class in high school and really loved it. Lewis is a skilled and intriguing author. You walk away from every book wanting a better mind instead of disappointed that you could have written parts of the book better. Love this! "

    " I went into the book not knowing that religion would be a foundation for the arguments made in the book. Religion aside, each chapter had quotes or paragraphs that made me think about how I viewed that type of 'love,' especially in my own life but also philosophically. "
