In September of 1979, about a year after becoming pope, John Paul II began a series of reflections on love, sexuality, and the human person. These 15-minute talks, which continued for several years, became known collectively as the "Theology of the Body." This book paraphrases 86 of Pope John Paul II's talks in easy-to-understand English.

"An absolute 'must-have' for Catholic Studies reference and resource shelves." -- Midwest Book Review

"Masterfully distills the essence of the pope's talks." -- National Catholic Register

"This fully ecumenical understanding of sexuality is less about following the rules than about discovering the freedom of living in truth." -- First Things

"Succeeds in bringing papal teaching on the body within the reach of the average reader." -- The British Columbia Catholic
