C.S. Lewis's famous inspirational work on the nature of love. C.S. Lewis's famous work on the nature of love divides love into four categories: Affection, Friendship, Eros and Charity.

The four loves C.S. Lewis discusses are Affection, Friendship, Eros and Charity. He observes how each merges into another, without losing sight of the necessary and real difference between them. He also warns of the deception and distortions which can render the first three-the natural loves-dangerous without the sweetening grace of Charity, the divine love which must be the sum and goal of all.

Great read from a man who knows how to express what the Christian faith means in his life.

This is a book I would recommend to everyone who wants to discover what love means. It is the most thorough and wise book I have ever read on the subject. It is another non-stop read and re-read from cover to cover. It is a book about which one must make notes, highlight and stop intermittintly to breathe and reflect. It is a book one reads from evening to daybreak.

Not just philosophy, but explanation of experience
C.S. Lewis' Four Loves has long been respected as a philosophical work, but for those who have not yet read it: it is a must read for other reasons. Excellent, humanistic explanations and thoughts of the what's and why's of the different loves that every person encounters will change the way that the reader lives in love.

Deep philosophical work
In this clearly thought out and well written book, Lewis discusses the nature of love as it relates both to God and to our everyday lives. He talks about four types of love: affection, friendship, eros, and charity, detailing the rewards and perils of each. While you may not always agree with Lewis, this book will certainly make you think.
