The writings speak to a reader at numerous levels: the personal, the organizational, global, sacramental, familial, paternal, maternal, fraternal, vocational, scriptural, anthropological and many others. The beauty is the integration of teachings at and across each level!
The teachings encapsulated within this work synthesize many truths about humanity and Catholic Christianity.
The book's writings shed light on the fullness of Truth revealed in and over the fullness of time. What was implied in the truth of the Gospel is revealed in a more explicit way in the Pope's analysis.
Topics of interest include: the dignity of the human person, the human body in art versus pornography, the intended relationship between man and woman from the beginning - in the present - and future, what the physical human body reveals about the nature of the person and God, the call to Chastity and Modesty, the universal call to holiness, the mystery of Body of Christ, the mystery of the priesthood, celibacy, and the mystery of the Eucharist and much, much more.
The book is a difficult read if you are not familiar with the Pope's method... but well worth it!!
The book is divided into parts. Part 1 contains two sections: A) Original Unity of Man and Woman - B) Blessed Are the Pure of Heart. Part 2 is called "Life According to the Spirit". Each lesson given by the John Paul the Great, in his general audience, is discussed in this version of TOB as a lesson. For example, TOB 1 is lesson 1, TOB 2 lesson 2 and so forth. The subject of each lesson is easily definable in the Table of Contents.
There are more than one version of TOB in print. "Human Love in the Divine Plan" is the earlier version and "Man and Woman He Created Them" is a later version. Both contain the same TOB message and are both good. However, the books visually present TOB differently and the sentence structure is a little different. Some of the words are also different, such as using lust vs. concupiscence respectively.
