Who really understands love? We can't see love or grab hold of it. We often don't know how to accept love, and we're most afraid of expressing it to others.
In this book, Dr. James P. Gills, husband and father, gives substance to love. He doesn't claim to have mastered the art of loving. He simply challenges you to join him in life's ultimate quest.

Take an in-depth look at the five different types of love used--epithumia, eros, philia, storge, and agape--that summarize the dynamics of love.
