      This study is the most comprehensive account to date of modern treatments of the love commandment. Gene Outka examines the literature on agape from Nygren’s Agape and Eros in Both Roman Catholic and Protestant writings are considered, including those of D’Arcy, Niebuhr, Ramsey, Tillich, and above all, Karl Barth.   That is why Eros has no place in the Scriptures and why God gives agape pre-eminence in His Word. The new Peter Pans are trapped in the web of Eros, while Christ calls them to the freedom of agape. This is no easy task in the post-modern culture in which we live. Every venue that touches our eyes and ears screams more.
