CSLewisDoodle The Four Loves Part 3

The Four Loves (‘Eros’ or ‘The Love Between the Sexes’) by C.S. Lewis Doodle

Description: When Lewis made these Four Loves recordings, he was very happily married and very much in love with his wife, Joy. Her cancer had been in remission almost a year at this point. The best description of Lewis’ transition to Eros is in a letter he wrote to a friend, where he said: “It is nice to have arrived at all this by something which began in Agape, proceeded to Philia, then became Pity [as to her plight], and only after that, Eros. As if the highest of these, Agape, had successfully undergone the sweet humiliation of an incarnation.”

Originally ‘The Four Loves’ series was recorded by Lewis in London in 1958, prepared as 10 talks to air on the ‘Protestant Hour’ on American radio in 1959.
