Publisher's Summary

C.S. Lewis' famous work on the nature of love divides love into four categories: affection, friendship, eros and charity. The first three are loves which come naturally to the human race. Charity, however, the gift-love of God, is divine in its source and expression, and without the sweetening grace of this supernatural love, the natural loves become distorted and even dangerous.

love is not god

I couldn't get past the initial religious onslaught. the author seems to think that God is the fundamental component of love.
