Summary
In an age of self-affirmation and self-assertion, 'selfless love' often appears as a threat to the lover's personal well-being. Such a perception jars with the Biblical promise that we gain our life through losing it. It therefore calls for a theological response. In conversation with the Protestant theologian Paul Tillich and the atheistic moral philosopher and novelist Iris Murdoch, this book enquires into the anthropological grounds on which selfless love can be said to build up the lover's self.
