Second, was Dr. Michael Waldstein's translation, "Man and Woman He Created Them; A Theology of the Body."
Third, Christopher West's "Theology of the Body Explained: A Commentary on John Paul II's Man and Woman He Created Them."
Fourth, is the present work by Christopher West: "Theology of the Body for Beginners."
John Paul's dense theological tome is a difficult read which Christopher West does a nice job of making more accessible. This work 'for beginners' is the gateway which whets the appetite for the deeper, more thorough presentations.
Mr. West's presentation is organized and entertaining. It is also powerful in its ability to motivate change in your life.
This book should be a MUST read for every high school student, every young couple, every couple who is just married (or about to be), and everyone else who just wants to understand WHY we are here and the purpose for sexual relations.
It had made my return to TOB more understandable.
Your jaw will drop more than once as the book unfolds the true meaning of our sexuality.
Honestly, this is great read for non-Catholics as well since John Paul II (soon to be saint) and Christopher West explain the values of chastity in today's secular/sexualized society. I wish I had read this when I was a teenager!
Some books are clunkers, like hitting a block of wood. No resonance. I'm certain that reading this book has been like ringing a bell and thoughts will continue to bounce around in my mind long after I've finished it.
I think the hardest part for reading this was it didn't "flow." It wasn't easy to see where one of his ideas flowed into another. I read about 3 books a week, so for this one to take me a full week, it shows how I had to "work" at understanding what he was saying. Concept great, just difficult to follow.
I found it helpful ans easy to read...
I liked it so much, that after buying the Kindle version I also ordered the book to lend it to my friends... Definitively something worth knowing... :)
