The Four Loves

The Four Loves by C. S. Lewis

the four loves book

C.S. Lewis—the great British writer, scholar, lay theologian, broadcaster, Christian apologist, and bestselling author of Mere Christianity, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, The Chronicles of Narnia, and many other beloved classics—contemplates the essence of love and how it works in our daily lives in one of his most famous works of nonfiction. Lewis examines four varieties of human love: affection, the most basic form; friendship, the rarest and perhaps most insightful; Eros, passionate love; charity, the greatest and least selfish. Throughout this compassionate and reasoned study, he encourages readers to open themselves to all forms of love—the key to understanding that brings us closer to God.

Zen and The Art of Helping

Zen and The Art of Helping by David Brandon
1974

zen and the art of helping

A succinct, uncompromising study of what it means to help other people, this book, first published in 1978, examines the helping process in the light of the principles of Zen Buddhism. Emphasizing the Zen precepts of true compassion, newness and Taoistic change, it explains how a helper can break down the artificial barriers that serve to separate people and hinder the helping process. As the teachings of Zen demonstrate, real compassion involves a selflessness and respect that can bring helper and helped together.

Montaigne

Montaigne by Peter Burke
1982

Montaigne created a new literary genre – the essay – and his own essays, still compulsively readable today, had a widespread influence on thought and literature in the Renaissance and beyond. He puts forward unconventional views on a wide variety of subjects, including miracles, kings, animals, war, toleration, sex, and witches. A serene, ironic observer of the human comedy, Montaigne was intrigued by human diversity, and (unlike most of his contemporaries) prepared to take private life as seriously as public life. Montaigne has too often been treated as a ‘modern’ born out of his time. Peter Burke replaces him in his cultural context, and shows what Montaigne had in common with his contemporaries as well as how he differed from them. He describes the reactions of posterity to the Essays, which have appealed to a wide variety of writers and thinkers, from Bacon to Montesquieu, from Nietzsche to Levi-Strauss, and asks whether Montaigne can in any sense be considered our contemporary
