TOB New Translation

Theology of the Body NEW translation

If you haven't heard. John Paul II's Theology of the Body is being reprinted under a NEW translation based more upon the texts he wrote before he bacame pope in the original Polish. YES! JPII actually wrote his Theology of the Body before he bacame pope. It was ready for publication, but never made it to the press, so he read excerpts from the text as his weekly audiences.

The older translation (the one out now) is some what inaccurate. Many translators using different terms for the same idea. This new translation is guarenteed to be more accurate -- and maybe an easier read.
