C.S. Lewis’s 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.
C.S. Lewis is great to mine for quotes, but I found this book disappointing. Lewis applies sanctified common sense and thought to affection, friendship and eros. However, the chapter on charity I found very confused. It also contradicts Paul’s teaching on Esau in Romans 9. It is also written from a 1950s middle aged male perspective, which is a bit dated now.
