This original, highly readable book, now CD, poses a clear distinction between our customary form of love, which almost guarantees failure and higher, more generous ways of loving that can succeed and enrich both individuals and society as a whole. "Love That Works" draws on history, psychology and the theology and science of love to offer a proposal on how to be successful in love and romance. It starts by showing why love fails to meet expectations, often ending sadly or even tragically. It offers fresh insights on: How to know what love is and if you're really in love; understanding romance (eros), friendship (philia) and altruism (agape); love that leads to spiritual health and emotional well-being; and love "problems" related to the general disintegration of our culture. Bruce Brander is an international journalist and author of several books on travel and social philosophy. He has been a staff writer and photographer of newspapers in New Zealand and the United States, was a writer and editor for "National Geographic", and for twelve years served as a travelling journalist and editor for "World Vision", a global relief and development agency. Bruce Brander lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
