“HOMELY, FRIENDLY, EROTIC, AND DIVINE: THE FOUR LOVES OF C.S. LEWIS
February 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please note, this discussion is on Thursday, February 17, Noon – 1:00 p.m., in the Susan S. Goode Performing Arts Center at Virginia Wesleyan University.
Dr. Terry Lindvall unpacks Lewis’s classic work, The Four Loves, from its chilly inception to its practical wisdom. In this short book, Lewis, with his wife, Joy, opened up the windows of four kinds of love: storge, philia, eros, and agape, experiences of loving that help us enjoy these gifts bestowed by God. But be forewarned, as Lewis noted about their danger, “Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal.”
Terry Lindvall has held VWU’s C. S. Lewis Chair in Communication and Christian Thought since 2006. He is a prolific author on Lewis, as well as on film and humor.
