      Not for the faint of heart If your looking for an In depth look at TOB you ll find it here, otherwise go to Christopher West I ve heard read that some people were disappointed that he did not address specific issues one being homosexuality Those who say that probably went into reading this with motives which in itself is absurd due to the fact the whole book is cited from Scriptureeconceived motives and Sacred Scripture don t mix This led them to literally miss the theses of ALL 6 cycles and the [...]

    2. C. on said:

      I m constantly in awe at the simultaneous boldness and compassion with which JPII tackles the taboo of human sexuality and love as one who was raised in a Far Eastern culture that almost never discusses this, even among Catholics, I found this work enlightening and full of rich lessons His approach to love, both as a man and as a priest, is something that beats to a Divine rhythm that of the Sacred Heart I ll be digesting the contents of this work for years to come The one drawback it s not acce [...]

    3. M Christopher on said:

      I really wanted to like this book than I did Despite my deep differences with official Roman Catholic theology on a number of points, the late John Paul II always struck me as a kind and decent man With his background in leading an officially persecuted church in his native Poland, his history in the theatre similar to my own and his status as the first non Italian pope since 1523, he was certainly a fascinating character I hoped for some similarly unique theological insights from him.And, inde [...]

    4. Walter on said:

      In a society where sex has become an obsession, where divorce and cohabitation are commonplace, where respect for the dignity of women, and even men, is at an all time low, what response should Christians have Many of us take the thou shalt not approach, wagging our fingers at the sinners around us and watching helplessly as our society circles the bowl But Pope St John Paul II had a much profound response in the form of Theology of the Body.The Theology of the Body was a series of Papal discus [...]

    5. Lee on said:

      Many people don t realize it, but this book existed in Polish in manuscript form years before it ever was adapted to be presented at the Wednesday audiences not homilies at Mass, another frequently heard and equally mistaken notion The new 2011 critical edition by Waldstein is amazing The introductory essay alone is worth the price of the book, which I have in print, ebook, and Logos Verbum Catholic Scripture, Tradition, and Magisterium study formats.

    6. Karen L. on said:

      What an insightful mind John Paul II had He covers so much in this book, singleness, celibacy, sexuality , marriage etc These truths are crucial to Christian orthodoxy, and our understanding of the Christian faith, and how we relate to each other.He lays out truth in an engaging way A great resource book I will read bits of this whenever I need to an on going read.

    7. Cate on said:

      This book is WONDERFUL It is an absolute mental challenge to get through, but like a long training run for the body, it leaves the mind exhausted but feeling unbelievable You have to come to accept the cyclical nature of the passages as each section was given as a Wednesday audience address, there is a lot of repetition of topic but the brilliant analysis of scripture and humanity itself is pure pleasure to read By the end, I my heart was full to exploding I finished the last page and all but ju [...]

    8. Michelle on said:

      For months I struggled with this book and only got to page 181 and the actual book starts on page 131 I finally gave it up for a lost cause I know there are a lot of other ways to learn the teachings contained in this book so I will have to go to a talk or listen to a CD or something The writing is inaccessible for the average reader I have a college degree in English and it was over my head My difficulty in reading this may also be due to the fact that I have not read any academic religious boo [...]

    9. Theologus on said:

      An excellent series of homilies that sets the foundation of theological study of the human body and sexuality in this day Although it can at times be soporific for its repetitiveness being a series of homilies, not a singular discourse , and many criticize it unfairly for what topics it leaves out or does not discuss in detail, I believe it is a must read not only for theologians, but also for intelligent Christians genuinely interested in the place of the human person in God s plan.Once again, [...]

    10. Matt Cavedon on said:

      The late pontiff of sacred memory lays out a comprehensive theological anthropology Human beings find that the gift of creation has left them with bodies that are distinct and designed for reciprocity with each other self consciousness and self determination lead us into union Created bodies thus both suggest and teach what is fully revealed in Jesus Christ we are made for perfect communion with Another in love Interpersonal love is a sign and a school for Christian spiritual regeneration out of [...]

      It makes me a bit alarmed that people are getting married without reading this first.

    13. Kevin Bensema on said:

      First of all, this is not so much a single coherent work as a collection of short homilies The repeated introductions and conclusions make for slow going, and the translation is somewhat frustrating at times problematic is not a noun Further and this could be an artifact of the translation some of the derivations he makes are difficult to follow, at times appearing to be non sequiturs On the bright side, the late Pontiff s analysis of the initial institution of marriage in Genesis was interestin [...]

    14. David Mosley on said:

      This excellent book, which in the main body is a collection of General Audiences given by Pope John Paul II and in the appendices Encyclicals given by Popes Paul VI and John Paul II, helps the Christian understand God s purpose and plan for the body From topics like marriage and celibacy to abortion and euthanasia, The Theology of the Body helps explain what the Scriptures and the Tradition have to say about the sanctity of human life, the human body, gender, and the sacramentality of being huma [...]

    15. Jen on said:

      so.I actually skipped the first 130 pages that s just the introduction But I did read the next 530, which were the Pope s encyclicals on this topic I m sure much of it went over my head I recommend using some sort of starter material, like Christopher West s lectures, before digging into this book It can seem daunting but you ll have some ah, ha moments It s sad to note that it took me 6 months to read this, but I carried it with me every time I traveled for about a year and a half, not reading [...]

    16. Alan Lampe on said:

      As you can see, it took me just over two months to read this excellent work from Saint Pope John Paul II He digs incredibly deep into the words of Christ and other Biblical authors to definitely show how the Catholic Church views sexuality and marriage This is not just his interpretation of scripture, as he builds on his predecessors work There is a lot to read, about 663 pages, and it is concentrated But after reading this, you ll be very knowledgeable of how man, male and female, are to expres [...]

    17. Eduardo Garcia-Gaspar on said:

      Largo, enredado, complicado, repetitivo, es un libro que presenta no solo esos retos, sino tambi n el de estar por encima de un lector como yo Es la colecci n de catequesis de Juan Pablo II sobre la teolog a del cuerpo emitidas durante un plazo de unos cuatro a os y que desmenuzan ideas sobre el matrimonio, el amor entre los esposos, el significado del cuerpo y lo hace siempre en relaci n con el amor entre Jesucristo y su Iglesia Creo que he estado frente a una joya que no alcanzo a comprender t [...]

    18. Czarny Pies on said:

      The Catholic Church never takes a position based on superficial thinking Read this and you will understand that the magister of the church is based on very solid and very thorough theology even if it can boiled down to the very simple terms The sexual act is to be reserved for married Christians As an act of total giving it becomes a powerful act of Christian love.

    19. Beth on said:

      John Paul II s audiences are definitely a dense read, but this translation is very accessible and the footnotes are extremely helpful The content is extremely relevant for a Catholic or anyone else seeking to understand our bodies and how they relate to our spiritual selves I find this book easiest to go through with a discussion group or even a class.

      This one book will be the most remembered theology to come out of the post Vatican II era of the last half of the twentieth century

    23. RnR on said:

      This is one of those books that you never really stop reading You will always go back through its pages time and again.

    24. Isabel on said:

      This book, although thoroughly well intentioned and expert, was written in such an academic way, that I just didn t make it through it and struggled every bit of the way with it.

    25. Alyssa Watson on said:

      I liked it but I wouldn t read it without a commentary by Christopher West very dense and easily misunderstood
