In these remarkable tapes, 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:
Eros(sexual love)
Agape(selfless love)
But instead of giving us a dry, theological treatise, Lewis makes the subject extremely personal and practical by showing us how easily natural loves can go wrong and polute our relationships. He shows that what we often tend to excuse as natural behavior is really selfish and destructive.
Lewis exposes these pitfalls in our loves in order to lead us to the solution-Godlike agape love, the kidn of love God has for men and women and the kind we must develop and nurture in all our relationships.
As in his writing, Lewis doesn't merely tell, he shows these loves in action with vivid and often humorous illustrations. The images are so relistically drawn and so alive you are sure to recognize someone you know or live with-or maybe even yourself.

You will hear the voice of C. S. Lewis on these tapes. There are very few recordings of his voice.
