Item description for Man and Woman, God Made Them by Jean Vanier...

In a new and fully revised edition of a classic text, Jean Vanier examines the significance and sources of human sexuality. Drawing on his years of experience of Christian community life with and for people with disabilities, he explores the implications of the relationship of man and woman from a Christian and community standpoint. When Vanier speaks of the cry for love within a person who is disabled, he draws the wider parallel of that same search within every man and woman; the fragility and vulnerability of each person at the level of the heart and in the search for relationship. An intimate and searching book, Man and Woman God Made Them contains a wealth of insight into the meaning and sources of human sexuality.

Reviews - What do customers think about Man and Woman, God Made Them?

Spiritualilty of Sex  Apr 10, 2008
I learned about this author from a poster on, an erstwhile discussion forum repressed by the powerful and litigious Legion of Christ recently in Alexandria City, VA, circuit court.
When comparing "spirituality" and spiritual writers and knowing of my "liberal bias" s/he came up with Vanier. He is the founder and director of L'Arche, an apostolate which creates homes for adults with Learning Problems and Mental Retardation [correct me if I am wrong]
I bought the book because of its title, and it does not disappoint. This is no banal discussion of sex or easy spiritual sublimating cop-outs.
In describing his experience and testimony with people with Mental Impairments he explains how his communities cope with and educate these people's sexual challenges.
He is quite orthodox in his view of Human Sexuality and does not condone masturbation and other practices as often happens in this field. What is wonderful and refreshing is how he places their -our! - sexuality in the human context of caring, affection, love, family and community.
In so doing he gives a refleshing vision of sexuality and love in a Humanistic, Christian, and even Catholic way.
His explanation and testimony of celibacy is a must read for all those who believe in that charism as well as those called to holistic marriage.
