Thank you, Tony, for this and for getting us actually thinking about the meaning of love. Please allow me to say that your theological definition of love negates the true love that a non-believer has. Of course a non-believer cannot have true agape love but nevertheless as with all humanity is gifted with the capacity to love.

Timothy Keller said something I recently came across that I think is relevant to agape love: "There are two ways to live. My life for you, or my life for me." The former encapsulates the love of Christ.
