In this remarkable audio, C.S. Lewis shows why millions of readers have acclaimed him the greatest spokesman for Christianity in this century. In a resonant, baritone voice, Lewis explores the nature of the four Greek words that are translated love in English:

  • Storge (affection)
  • Philia (friendship)
  • Eros (sexual love)
  • Agape (selfless love)

    But instead of giving you a dry, theological treatise, Lewis makes the subject extremely personal and practical by showing you how easily natural loves can go wrong and pollute your relationships. He shows that what you often tend to excuse as natural behavior is really selfish and destructive.

    Lewis exposes these pitfalls in your loves in order to lead you to the solution - Godlike agape love, the kind of love God has for men and women and the kind you must develop and nurture in all relationships.

    As in his writings, Lewis doesn't merely tell, he shows these loves in action with vivid and often humorous illustrations. The images are so realistically drawn and so alive you are sure to recognize someone you know or live with - or maybe even yourself. Download and start listening now!

      " As usual, there are a lot of interesting things to think about after reading this book. I felt as though Lewis went off on more tangents this time around, or maybe the tangents just weren't as good, but the core of the thoughts are good. Also, I thought he could have elaborated more in the Eros section without the Venus being involved. I think the core ideas of Eros love got lost in all of the Venus talk. "

      " Lewis is generally wise about how humans behave and what obstacles they tend to put in the way of being good to one another, even if you don't share his Christianity. The places where he fails to convince, however, are spectacularly large, because his social conservatism and his bigotry against other faiths can't help but come out, being much of what define his thinking. But he belongs to a small group of English conservative writers--Evelyn Waugh and Saki are the others--whose levels of insight and talent keep me reading them, even if their condescension (extending, of course, towards "liberated" women) is unpalatable.
