C.S. Lewis gets 5 stars. This book gets 4. It's simply a collection of some of his best writings on love, which are collected from some of his greatest books: Mere Christianity, Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, etc. there are great pieces in here, but it's best to read the book in which they originated rather than in isolation. Don't read the cliff notes of C.S. Lewis. Which is basically what this is.

Filled with evocative pictures, this book collects C.S. Lewis's thoughts on love. He makes clear the Christian view of love is this: love the feeling comes from love the action. Don't wait for the feeling to love someone, act in a loving way toward them and the feeling will follow. My favorite part was "Friendship," where Lewis says that what separates friendship from romance is that love between friends expands to include more and more people.

I very much liked "Mere Christianity" and I also enjoyed "On Love". It is hard to summarize in a short review, I also feel like I will go over it again in the future as certain parts "said" more to me than some others. So if you liked "MC", you may want to read this one too and if you haven't read either, I would start with "MC".

Just a short book with quotes from C.S. Lewis on love. Got a couple good quotes from this book and some ideas to ponder but overall, not that influential.

Inserts of Lewis from different books he wrote, all on the different types of love. I think it'd be better to just read each individual book of his.

Cute little gift book but no real substance. Apparantly Lewis was virtually silent about the primary Christian virtue.
