Overview

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.
