      Product Description
      Building
      on the legacy of Pope John Paul II, it is significant that the first
      encyclical letter of Pope Benedict XVI is dedicated to the topic God is
      Love. The Holy Father demonstrates that it is agape, the
      self-sacrificial love of God that empowers romantic love, eros, with
      life-giving and meaningful existence. In The Love That Satisfies,
      Christopher West draws from the Pope s letter a series of insightful
      and inspiring reflections on the nature of eros, agape, and the
      relationship between the two. He shows that it is through recognizing
      and embracing the beauty of God s self-sacrificial love that a person
      is able to truly be satisfied. In uniting the love of God to the love
      of spouse, the nuptial bond is fulfilled. Perhaps even more profound is
      the reality that God and the Bridegroom of the Church has a personal
      love for his Bride that may certainly be called eros (Benedict XVI,
      Deus Caritas Est, n. 9).
