The Book by Alain Badiou called in Praise of love is one I think everyone should read, it’s short concise and explains in a non-reductive but thoughtful way what love is and why it is important, not from a Christian standpoint, but in fact from a French Atheist Marxist’s standpoint, which in fact happens to coincide with the Christian standpoint in many respects. 1,764 more words
