Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body
This same love is realized in human relationships and in a concrete way in the human body. Throughout, the Pope reaffirms the essential goodness of the human body. One of the reasons it remains such a timely work is that it confronts some of the Gnostic tendencies in the Church today that spiritualize things and tend to downplay the significance and basic goodness of the body. The book is filled with profound and rare insight into who God is and who man is. It will help to complete the theology of most Christian readers and also has important practical implications. Because the book was originally an extended series of lectures at times it can be unwieldy and difficult to comprehend. Charles Erlandson, Tyler, Texas.
