Great perspective on marriage, and life, and on what it means to be a man or a woman. It is written from a catholic perspective, but it is immensely useful for any Christian, Catholic or not, to read. The book is well written, and broadly thought out. I would go so far as to say that it is a book that every Christian or interested person should read at least once in their lifetime. I have learned so much in reading it.

An amazing book and would recommend to anyone! This needs to be taught to our teenagers/young adults. Very much makes the teachings about sex and relationships tangible for people. This provides the "why" and really allows a person to understand that there is true beauty in chastity (read: not simply abstinence)! If we could form better teaching material that follows TOB than it would be perfect for those in high school/going through confirmation. Kids nowadays need to know the "why" and not the simply "shut up and color" teachings.

Pope JPII''s masterwork has been described as a time bomb ticking away in the heart of western civilization, and not likely to go off at least until the middle of the twenty-first century. It is, in fact, quite probably the most important book to be written in the past four hundred years. It directly challenges the path on which Descartes set the thinking of western civilization when he began the work (carried on by others) of separating the person into the exterior, the less important body as opposed to the truly important interior where the real me resides. The result has been a Manichaeism quite unlike anything seen since the end of the ancient world, and proving to be just as destructive of modern culture as was that antique (in both senses) system and its denigration of the physical. At times Pope JPII''s masterwork casts brilliant light on everything from scriptural exegesis to philosophy to physical love, but it is at very heavy going. For that reason, to the reader unfamiliar with some of these themes I recommend Christopher West''s book on the theology of the body for beginners.

This is the full set of the Pope’s teachings, including some sections he didn’t deliver in his Wednesday audiences, with extensive cross-references to his notes, a book he wrote before becoming pope, and prior published editions. The headings make it easier to know where we are in the pope’s plan of argument. Bless his heart, he got to a level where either no editor was willing to correct him or maybe he misunderstood the papal infallibility clause and thought he didn’t need an editor, but his irregular use of quotation marks and highlighting to emphasize some ideas is lovingly reflected in the current edition.

Pages bent over and the bend inserted into the binding so they are bound and cannot be unfolded. At least one page that had excess material folded in to the page so page was not trimmed off square and projected from book. Back cover marked with a red line, suspect this was identified as defective or factory second but still reached retail. Am very concerned there may be missing or duplicated pages. This is being returned. It''s far to expensive a book to pay for these blatant defects and perhaps others that weren''t noticed in looking at the book in the first two minutes.

This is a compilation of a series of lectures given by Pope John Paul II on the true meaning of sexuality and spousal union. It is a rather lengthy book, with lots of repetition because they are his lectures. At the beginning of each lecture, expect that he will "recap" what he discussed the previous time. It is good to read his actual words, but it requires patience to filter through the "new" material he presents because after a while you realize he is saying the same thing in different words; but, this may be required to get his message through to some readers/listeners. Each of us learns and grasps concepts differently, so his presentation of the material is geared toward universality in teaching the meaning of true spousal union as mutual self-gifting as given to us by God in the beginning before the fall in Eden. Using Scripture, JPII explains God''s divine plan for human sexuality and its purpose; and he explains how objectification and selfishness in sexuality has led to a multitude of problems for society. He sees the sacramental aspect of marriage between man and woman through the eyes of Scripture. It is worth the time to read, but be patient with his repetitions, realizing that this was originally a lecture series. This book includes the "transcripts" of those lectures. Every Christian person--Catholic or not--should read his book to understand how sacred human sexuality is and how deviance destroys relationships.

I believe this is the most important teaching of our time, next to JPII''s earlier work "Love and Responsibility". And there are good points to note about this edition, such as the wide margins (nice for jotting down notes), and the thick pages (so ink does not bleed through the paper).

However, I did run into an issue with the binding. Just half way through reading it (after 2 months ownership), the binding cracked in multiple locations and pages fell out. None of my other books have this problem, including books I''ve owned for years from other publishers, but perhaps my copy was just defective. If publishers are reading this, an offering of hard cover would be nice. A work of such great importance for our time deserves a high quality binding. Thank you!

This is no doubt a difficult book to get through but I had to read it for a class. I am so glad I did! I don’t think 99% of Catholics understand the beauty and love God intended for us in our human sexuality. JPII brings us all the way back to the beginning of scripture and explains. We will be unpacking TOB for the next 100 years! JPII began writing it 10 years after Humane Vitae. He was not yet made Pope. Then God willed him to be Pope and this is what the next ~120 Wednesday audiences were about... TOB! It is golden. Most influential writing I have read in a long time.

A phenomenal work of theology relating to the most fundamental aspect of humanity - marriage and the relationship between man and woman. The book comes with a fantastic introduction which breaks the entirety of the wealth of the theology of the body into an easy-flowing and understandable narrative before providing the reader with the full text of the papal work. This contribution of John Paul II to not just treasury of the theology of the Church as a whole, but also to civilisation in general, is sadly underestimated and underappreciated. Absolutely recommend this to anyone interested in the topic - utterly revolutionary and profound.

Funny how you buy a book to understand God''s proper ordering for marital relationships and what I have found is far more expansive . A greater appreciation for every human being .Trust God .People are not tools to be used , but valuable in their own right. This book has overturned so many misconceptions I have absorbed . No, this book is not easy to read . Some days I manage a page or a paragraph but I would rather a hard correct book rather than an easy commentary from the viewpoint of another who is not the author..

Great scholarly translation that provides the reader with close access to the texts of the papal audiences. The introduction is extensive and the references and bibliography at the back are invaluable to kick start research into JPII''s TOTB. (I''m using this for my undergraduate dissertation in Theology). It is a big work and takes considerable time to digest and work though though, so don''t expect beach time reading all the time from this work!
