In the 20th Century three social revolutions ó the industrial, sexual and technological revolutions ó challenged the religious convictions of many. John Paul IIís teaching on the theology of the body was his response to the resulting societal shifts.

In this volume, Fr. Bransfield has done what no other author has: he explores John Paulís response to the challenges raised by these revolutions. In this context Bransfield then explores how TOB leads us to live the fullness of the Christian life.
