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.
Clive Staples Lewis was born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1898. He was a professor of medieval and Renaissance literature at Oxford and Cambridge universities who wrote more than thirty books in his lifetime, including The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Mere Christianity. Lewis is arguably the most influential Christian writer of the twentieth century.

Scott Conway5 Stars Out Of 5May 24, 2005Scott ConwayBeing a long time C.S. Lewis fan, I am always ready to listen to something by him. I originally heard these on tape at my local library and loved them. I have waited for them to come out on CD.Lewis' big, throaty voice and English accent gives weight to his assertions. It adds a dynamic to his writings. It almost makes you feel like you are sitting amongst the Inklings listening to them discuss their writings. Maybe they'll discover and/or release more recordings by Lewis himself in the future.The Four Loves is one of my favorite Lewis books.
