Since God is Love; we are made in His image and likeness, and are designed to reflect the essence of Divine Love. Because of the Fall, we are affected by Original Sin and have a distorted understanding of what love and beauty means.
We must always understand that The Four Loves (Agape, Eros, Storge, and Philia), go outward toward another person. Love is true when it is self-giving (outward), and it becomes selfish when it turns in toward itself.
Edgerton spends eight fairly short chapters debunking that notion, and it made me wonder why it took eight chapters. It seemed pretty obvious by the time I got through the first twenty pages, and I’m not sure I ever needed convincing.
Give yourself an honest assessment: Who do you follow?
I like things that are hard to wrap your head around. This is one of them.
