Product Description

The first edition of Theology of the Body Explained (2003) quickly became a Catholic best-seller, serving as a standard reference text in universities, seminaries, and private study. This newly revised and expanded edition (2007) is based on Michael Waldstein’s outstanding translation of John Paul II’s catechesis Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body (2006).

In this newly revised and expanded edition:


  • All quotes of John Paul II have been updated with the new translation
  • Key insights discovered through Dr. Waldstein’s access to the John Paul II archives have been incorporated
  • The outline of the text has been substantially reorganized to reflect what we now know about the structure of John Paul II’s original manuscript
  • The newly discovered headings of the Pope’s original text have been incorporated throughout
  • The illuminating insights of John Paul’s six undelivered and previously untranslated addresses on the Song of Songs, Tobit, and Ephesians are unfolded here for the first time
  • The Prologue has been thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded based on new insights into the mind of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II
