Overview

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 Chuck Colson.

The CD will also include a study guide--perfect for individual or group use.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

    A C.S. Lewis Masterpiece

    'The Four Loves' teaches you so much about the nature of the different types of love (Affection, Friendship, Eros, Charity). Some of the loves are intertwined with each other, however, you will soon be able to distinguish one from another. You'll learn a lot about yourself as well as others. This book will help you to live your life selflessly. I'll leave you with 2 quotes: '...in a good friendship, each member often feels humility towards the rest. He sees that they are splendid and counts himself lucky to be among them.' 'When we see the face of God, we shall know that we have always known it.'

    a MUST read!

    Alongside Fromm's 'The Art of Loving,' Peck's 'The Road Less Traveled,' and Krishnamurti's writing, Lewis' 'The Four Loves' is one of the best books of the twentieth century on the subject of love and relationships.

    Sunday school lesson or sermon?

    Despite brief mention of inspirational blurb should have been more specific of genre and sub genre

    Difficult read must be patient

    Must be patient with love, too. It was difficult to read and took me a couple of times to truly understand the message, but well worth it and very interesting.

    GREAT read!

    One of the best authors I have ever read. This book goes really deep, and makes you think, so don't pick it up for a stroll in the park! I've gotten so much out of it, and I know every time I re-read it (which I plan on doing!), I will find more and more things that I can apply to my walk with God and my everyday life. I highly Recommend this book for a book study with a group of friends so you can share the things that you learned with everyone, and puzzle out the more confusing passages together!
