Why we should love God, and the measure of that love -- How much God deserves love from man in recognition of His gifts, both material and spiritual; and how these gifts should be cherished without neglect of the Giver -- What greater incentives Christians have, more than the heathen, to love God -- Of those who find comfort in the recollection of God, or are fittest for His love -- Of the Christian's debt of love, how great it is -- A brief summary -- Of love toward God not without reward; and how the hunger of man's heart cannot be satisfied with earthly things -- Of the first degree of love, wherein man loves God for self's sake -- Of the second and third degrees of love -- Of the fourth degree of love, wherein man does not even love self, save for God's sake -- Of the attainment of this perfection of love only at the resurrection -- Of love : out of a letter to the Carthusians -- Of the law of self-will and desire, of slaves and hirelings -- Of the law of the love of sons -- Of the four degrees of love, and of the blessed state of the heavenly fatherland -- Of the supreme and infinite Spirit, who is God -- Of the manner of human redemption -- That praise and glory is always to be rendered unto God for all the good gifts which we receive of Him -- In what manner the Name of Jesus is a salutary medicine to faithful Christians in all adversities -- Of the manner in which we ought to love Christ -- In what manner the Bride, that is, the Church, asks that she may be drawn to follow after her Spouse, which is Christ -- What is to be understood by the word 'noon' -- The knowledge of literature is good for our instruction, but the knowledge of our own infirmity is more useful to salvation -- Of the two kinds of knowledge and ignorance -- Of the Banqueting House -- How the Bridegroom bids the Bride to undertake the training of souls -- In what way the Father and the Word come into a soul that loves and take up their abode in it -- Of the visitations of the Bridegroom, the Word, to the holy soul, and the secrecy with which they are made -- Of how God first loves us
