Man and Woman, God Made Them by Jean Vanier

In a new and fully revised edition of a classic text, Jean Vanier examines the significance and sources of human sexuality. Drawing on his years of experience of Christian community life with and for people with disabilities, he explores the implications of the relationship of man and woman from a Christian and community standpoint.

When Vanier speaks of the cry for love within a person who is disabled, he draws the wider parallel of that same search within every man and woman; the fragility and vulnerability of each person at the level of the heart and in the search for relationship. An intimate and searching book, Man and Woman God Made Them contains a wealth of insight into the meaning and sources of human sexuality.
