    A Good, Practical Introduction to the Theology of the Body of JPII

    This book does a nice job of explaining in a simple, readable manner what John Paul II means by "Theology of the Body" and then gives practical insights on how to live out the Pope's ideas in our daily lives. I find it helpful for my own life.
