Product Description

Based on the words of Scripture, John Paul II's famous reflection on the body and sex take us to the root of the modern crisis and chart a path to an authentic sexual liberation. This book takes the rich (and dense) teachings of the late Holy Father and makes them accessible to the average person. This freshly revised and expanded edition is based on Dr. Michael Waldstein's much improved translation of John Paul II's catechesis.

Publisher's Description

Broken families, abortion, AIDS, Internet pornography, sexual abuse scandals, homosexual marriage, our Church and our world are in the midst of a profound sexual crisis. Is there a way out?

For such a time as this have we been given Pope John Paul IIs Theology of the Body. Based on the words of Jesus, John Paul II's famous reflections on the body and sex take us to the root of the modern crisis and chart the path to an authentic sexual liberation. Yet the Pope's dense scholarship often intimidates the average person.

In his book, Theology of the Body Explained, Christopher West offered a more detailed, six-hundred page commentary on John Paul II's Theology of the Body. Here, he provides a short and popular summary of the Pope's revolutionary teaching.

What is the meaning of life?

Why did God create us male and female?

Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it?

How do we attain true happiness on earth?

What kind of joys await us in heaven?

How can we experience the love we long for in the depth of our hearts?

The first edition of Theology of the Body for Beginners (2004) quickly became an international best-seller. This freshly revised and expanded edition is based on Dr. Michael Waldsteins much improved translation of John Paul IIs catechesis.

New for this edition:

All quotations have been updated with the new translation.

Key insights discovered through Dr. Waldstein's access to the John Paul II archives have been incorporated.

The outline of the text has been substantially reorganized to reflect the newly discovered outline of John Paul's original manuscript.

John Paul's "hidden" and previously untranslated addresses are summarized.

    I have read many a theology book for school, but this is the first I have ever enjoyed. It was a fast read that really made me think about what I believe, what the Catholic Church believes, and the reasons for those beliefs. I would highly recommend this to all Catholics and all people who question the Church's views on sex.
