I have read Bernard V. Brady's 'Christian Love' a few times, and it always inspires me not only to love more, but also to learn more. It's not a light read, that's for sure, so I am gifting it to my serious boss, but it is a delightful book that explores love as an occasion throughout history. It is a book that I always recommend highly.
