Review

‘He has never written better. Nearly every page scintillates with observations which are illuminating, provocative and original.’ Church Times

Review

'He has never written better. Nearly every page scintillates with observations which are illuminating, provocative and original.' Church Times

From the Back Cover

Millions of words have been written on the true nature of love, but few are as succinct as in this book. This seminal inspirational work divides 'love' into four categories: Affection, Friendship, Eros and Charity. The first three come naturally, but without Charity, C.S.Lewis shows us how all love can become distorted, bitter and even dangerous.

"He has never written better. Nearly every page scintillates with observations which are illuminating, provocative, and original."
CHURCH TIMES

"I read C.S.Lewis for comfort and pleasure many years ago, and a glance into the books revives my old admiration."
JOHN UPDIKE

About the Author

Born in Ireland in 1898, Clive Staples Lewis gained a triple First at Oxford and was Fellow and Tutor at Magdalen College from 1925-54, where he was a contemporary of Tolkien. In 1954 he became Professor of Mediaeval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. C. S. Lewis was for many years an atheist, until his conversion, memorably described in his autobiography ‘Surprised by Joy’: “I gave in, and admitted that God was God … perhaps the most dejected and reluctant convert in all England.” He is celebrated for his famous series of children’s books, the Narnia Chronicles (which have been filmed and broadcast many times), as well as his literary criticism and science fiction. C. S. Lewis died on 22nd November 1963.
