Outside of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the Theology of the Body is arguably be Pope John Paul II's greatest contribution to the doctrinal life of the Church. It is arguable because he also wrote a great many encyclical and apostolic letters as well. The challenge with this great book, which interprets the human person in light of Scripture, especially the Creation account in the Book of Genesis, is that many sections are awfully dense and hard to get in to. I would recommend this book more for doctoral or graduate level students than for your average reader who simply wants to know what the Theology of the Body is.

We weren't told about this when I was growing up. It might have changed the way I looked at dating. It certainly would have made me set higher standards.

Awesome... It's like having a bible study with the Pope on the meaning of man, of his corporality and his vocation to love and be loved. The depth that he penetrates the scriptures to show the dignity of the body is amazing. The truth of it just resonates... I could read it again and again, and I think I would always discover more. The translation itself is clear, conveys the intent of the original language very, very well. The introduction alone is awesome. It also contains a few addresses on Tobit and the Song of Songs that were omitted originally, and I think those were the most awesome ones!

This Christian anthropology is written by the Saint to be read by any and all persons. Waldstein's introduction should be skipped by the non-academic and absorbed and internalized by clergy, religious, and all teaching laity. Keep your Bible handy as well. This volume is a terrific walk through Scripture
