C.S. LEWIS, currently popularly known as the Narnia writer, from the Hollywood movies created a few years ago. CS Lewis was an Irish Novelist known for his essays on literature and his explanations on Christian teachings.

Lewis was part of the well known literary discussion group - The Inklins - associated with J.R.R. Tolkien at Oxford University, which allowed him to explore and discuss different ideas and concepts in different topics related to poetry, literature and religion.

An Anglican, which Tolkien felt sad for him not converting to Catholicism, in his writings he has always amalgamated or explained very good the Catholicism, Christian, Anglican messages, as all of them have the same foundations - The Bible.

And at the time when Lewis was well known to be seek to have conversations, he pursued the challenge to explain in different ways the general messages of the bible. He understood at the time, the only learning the population was getting about God, was via a Bible which not allow of them understood the language.

Listening to the audio book of CS Lewis talking at Cambridge University and readying the first version of his study on love, being published three (3) years later after the talk you are about to listen to. In today’s podcast, we will be reviewing the book by CS Lewis the four loves.

In today’s world the word love has become a mistreated word, a word that can mean so much and be misused so often, where the people have been desensitized from the true origins and depths of LOVE.

Scripture tells us that LOVE is the highest attribute, the 11th commandment given on the Last Supper - “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” John 15:12

In this podcast, Caroline, Malena and Mark will be discussing their takes on the four different loves described by lewis: Affection - storge, friendship - philia, romantic - eros, charity - agape.
