    Currently reading for my Ethics class. I'm really enjoying it so far! Will update when finished! Very thought provoking book. Really made me analyze how I love others (or how I don't love others). Although written from a Catholic view point, the majority of the book was written with reason as the foundation. Which, of course, goes back to God. It's a short and easy read. Currently reading for my Ethics class. I'm really enjoying it so far! Will update when finished! Very thought provoking book.

    This book seems to be a good summary, but as might be expected, my favorite parts of it were the actual quotes from JPII's Love and Responsibility. It prompted me to want to read the "real thing." :) This book seems to be a good summary, but as might be expected, my favorite parts of it were the actual quotes from JPII's Love and Responsibility.

    We think as a society we cannot define love. But I would say to you Saint John Paul the II did just that with his writings in Love and Responsibility and later in his Theology of the Body. The author, Edward Sri, does a wonderful job of unpacking a complicated topic for us the readers. Real love he explains is not just the "butterflies in your stomach" when you first date the love of your life but what you feel after 60 years of marriage. But this book not only delves into marital love but love We think as a society we cannot define love. But I would say to you Saint John Paul the II did just that with his writings in Love and Responsibility and later in his Theology of the Body. The author, Edward Sri, does a wonderful job of unpacking a complicated topic for us the readers. Real love he explains is not just the "butterflies in your stomach" when you first date the love of your life but what you feel after 60 years of marriage. But this book not only delves into marital love but love in all aspects like friendships and family. “Love is a virtue that involves sacrifice, responsibility and total commitment to the other person. Hollywood love is an emotion” says Edward Sri. My favorite example that brings it all together is the reference to the movie Titanic. In the movie many people glorify the emotional romance between the two main characters. “Two people whose romance develops over just a few days, which don’t really know each other and have no true commitment to each other.” says Edward Sri. Is this our ideal kind of love? John Paul the II explains that when we are carried away by our emotions, sentimentality may hinder our ability to know that person as she or he really is. Mr. Sri asks "Is this the kind of person who will make sacrifices for me and put what’s best for me or our family before them?" The Catechism defines love as willing the good of the other. Original sin is explained as when “Shame” entered the world. “Shame involves fear of another person, the sense that we’re not sure we can trust that person. We fear being used or being hurt, so we are afraid of being vulnerable in letting others see us as we really are.” Matthew Kelly wrote: “We can’t be loved for who we are if we won’t reveal ourselves. Unrevealed we never experience intimacy.” The more the Holy Spirit transforms our selfish and lustful hearts with the total self-giving love of Jesus Christ, the more relationships will recover their original meaning that God designed for us in the Garden of Eden. I would recommend this book to you and for those we love who are living in difficult relationships. It would be a great gift to our young teens trying to make sense of dating and beginning relationships with the opposite sex. I found myself in many ways within the pages of this book. It is about healing and raising up the value of true love.

    This is a good, brief introduction and application of St. JPII's _Love and Responsibility_, for those who already have at least a basic Christian worldview.

It was recommended to me as a book that would be particularly useful for people considering marriage (either as a single person discerning the general vocation, or as a couple preparing for marriage), and with the questions at the end of each chapter, I do think that is the audience for which it may prove most helpful, although the already-married looking to deepen their understanding of the state of marriage and move forward toward a stronger marriage would also find it beneficial. I am still seeking a book that lays out the (strong, SANE!) Catholic teachings on love and marriage that does NOT require a Catholic foundation to relate to it: an examination of the purposes and benefits of true marriage, and the consequences of supporting or denigrating that, for individuals and the culture at large, from a purely "practical," "lived" point of view, that would not "turn off" those who either have wounds that result in aversion to "churchy" ideas and language, or who are simply so unfamiliar with them that they cannot yet relate to them. I can clearly see in my head how that book could easily exist, and would be SO helpful to SO many people in our deeply confused culture, but I have not found it yet. If anyone reading this knows of ANY work like this, PLEASE recommend it! Thanks!

Every time I read it now, I think of where he has brought me and how much he has changed my heart, helped me to receive His love, and to give it back to others. I recommend this as a beginners book for practical ways to build a relationship. If you want deeper theological read, I recommend Love and Responsibility or Theology of the Body. Men Women, and the Mystery is a summary and breakdown of JP2's works.

[This] seem[s] all the more applicable in a culture like ours, in which love songs, romance films and TV shows constantly play with our emotions and prompt us to long for quick emotionally thrilling relationships (...). Real love, however, is very different from Hollywood love. Real love requires much effort. It is a virtue that involves sacrifice, responsibility and a total commitment to the other person. Hollywood love is an emotion. It's something that just happens to you. The focus is not on a commitment to another, but [mainly] on what is happening inside you—the powerful, good feelings you experience when you're with this other person (...). The Titanic phenomenon (...) demonstrates how many people have bought into the illusion of Hollywood love. [Millions of people] return again and again to experience the intensely emotional romance (...)—a romance that develops over just a few days between two people who really don't know each other and have no true commitment to each other. Yet viewers [feel] deeply that this attraction is the ideal kind of love that would have lasted a lifetime. A while ago, a good friend of mine recommended Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II's Love and Responsibility to me, and I skimmed through it briefly before putting it away, but lately I've really felt like reading a intellectually challenging book with thought contents to ponder on. And this book happened to be sitting on a shelf next to me. Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II's Love and Responsibility is, as Edward Sri notes, "simply aimed to make some of the insights from [Pope John Paul II's] challenging philosophical work Love and Responsibility more accessible to the average lay reader and offer some of [his] own reflections along the way." Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II's Love and Responsibility is an insightful, thought-provoking book, and it is easy to immerse yourself in it. It introduced a multitude of new deliberations to me, and every other page I found myself pausing, and reflecting on what I had read. It doesn't matter if you're religious, which religion you belong to, or if you're even an atheist, though. This book doesn't preach you anything, it merely provides you the opportunity to see into Pope John Paul's thoughts on various topics ranging from friendship to relationships and love, and presents ideas and thoughts, and whether or not you agree on those thoughts and ideas is not essential to your enjoyment when reading it. In the end, Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II's Love and Responsibility fascinated and impressed me deeply, and if you find yourself, like me, looking for a complex and challenging read, I highly recommend this book.

    The book is well written, short, easy to follow and easy to understand. It presents some interesting general insights into love and relationships. We could all use a reminder to value and build good solid relationships However, it’s important to keep in mind this book is presenting one set of opinions. Some of the chapters and arguments felt a bit narrow and “out of date” for my preferences.

(2007). Men, Women and the Mystery of Love: Practical Insights from John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility. Cincinnati: St. Anthony Messenger Press. 165p. bibliog. study questions. CDN$ 16.28 (pbk 9780867168402). In Men, Women and the Mystery of Love, Edward Sri—Catholic apologist, theologian and best-selling author—captures the profound philosophical writing of the late pontiff’s reflective text on the greatest theological virtue, in a work that illustrates the rich depth of Wojtyla’s masterpiece in a light never before achieved (though attempted: Love and Responsibility: A Simplified Version, Walsh, 2001). Published roughly a half century after the original release of Love and Responsibility, Sri’s novel navigates the salient themes of the human person’s need for love and love’s corresponding duties as propagated by John Paul II and embraced by millions of Catholics around the world since the Holy Father’s unforgettable pontificate. Sri brings the beauty of love in its perfect form—encompassing all forms of human relationships—to a level of accessibility through language and narrative style that enables Catholics and non-Catholics alike, from young adults to seniors, to tackle the intellectual behemoth that is Love and Responsibility. Don’t let its length fool you; Men, Women and the Mystery of Love is not an intellectual breeze. Sri’s mastery reveals itself, however, in his novel’s concise presentation, which breaks down its predecessor into succinct definitions, clear analogies and notable cross-references without diluting Wojtyla’s genius. Sri provides the reader with provocative questions at each chapter’s end as well as pragmatic lessons throughout the text to assist in understanding and embracing this life-altering approach to Christian morality and sexual ethics. With only rudimentary doctrinal knowledge needed to engage with the text, the book is highly recommended for personal and group study. It is an invaluable reference tool to keep on hand, moreover, while reading Love and Responsibility. A definite “must-read” for anyone wishing to access John Paul II’s brilliance, Men, Women and the Mystery of Love can—and should!—be read again and again.

    Wow! Fantastic little book. Marvelously succinct, clearly written, and quite practically helpful. Short, simple, and straightforward, and a fairly fast read, but not at all superficial.

I've owned the latter work for some time, but it's been on my large and every growing "to read" pile, and I haven't managed to look into it heretofore. After so thoroughly enjoying and appreciating Edward Sri's synopsis and discussion, however, it's going to move to the top of the stack. And as far as the work at hand is concerned, I'm seriously thinking that, after twenty years of doing pre-marital pastoral care in more or less the same way, I'm going to begin using this little book as the basis for that endeavor in the future. It's that good, in my opinion. Only two points at which I would disagree with the material included: Concupiscence must indeed be counted as sin in itself, contrary to the author's (and the Pope's) assertion; although it bears noting that the book does appropriately stress the fallenness of human nature and the consequences of the fall for dealing with relations between the sexes. The other point of disagreement would be in respect to contraception; although, even there, I am sympathetic to the author's points, and I appreciated the sensitive pastoral approach that was taken. All in all, a very welcome and beneficial contribution. References to Love and Responsibility at the end of each chapter, as well as well written study questions, make the present volume that much more valuable for study and discussion. Recommended.

    This is an excellent and definitive book on love and the meaning of love between a man and a woman. It is filled with insight in what really constitute love and the meaning of total complete love.

It This is an excellent and definitive book on love and the meaning of love between a man and a woman. It is filled with insight in what really constitute love and the meaning of total complete love. Saint John Paul II provides practical insight from his writings on love while he was pope and bishop of Rome. In the introduction love and responsibility is brilliantly written to shed a light on the mysterious dynamics between men and women and challenges all readers to live those dynamics better. It also gives a person the points to consider determining if the love is true or driven only by sensual love. Love is an ongoing progress, which does not end until one passes into eternity. The book brings to the table not only the meaning but to answer the basic question of how do you know you are really in love. In addition it explores a key element of a lasting love, which can overcome all difficulties if God is a partner with the man and woman in love. In addition a strong prayer life is necessary to sustain love through the years. A favorite prayer for couples and families is the daily praying of the Holy Rosary because as the late father Patrick Peyton, the rosary priest, often said, "The family that prays together stays together." I strongly recommend this book to all who want to have a fruitful and lasting marriage and pray the rosary daily. In addition little things mean a lot. These are small acts of love, which provide a spark to any marriage by saying every day, “I love you,” and leaving love notes for your love to discover around the house but most important do not take your love for granted; yes give her a hug and make a fuss over her when you have been apart. So, no read the book for other suggestions.

Hollywood love is an emotion. It's something that just happens to you. The focus is not on the commitment to another, but on what is happening inside you-- the powerful, good feelings you experience when you're with this other person. Human persons have free will and are capable of self-determination. Unlike the animals that act according to their instincts and appetites, persons can use their reason and act deliberately...[As Pope John Paul II emphasized,] 'Anyone who treats a person as the means to an end does violence to the very essence of the other, to what constitutes its natural right.'"

    I read this book for my church group, and I have to say it was very interesting. Much of the ideas mentioned in this book were already exposed to me in readings before, but this one had a slightly different way of wording these same ideas. I found it very easy to read as Sri explained much of the work of John Paul II. This book is almost a translation of the more difficult to read Love and Responsibility.

    I just learned about this book from the Catholic Educator's Resource Centre (CERC) site where the author Edward Sri is a frequent contributor and had actually ran a series of articles to explain PJPII's book "Love and Responsibility". Those articles were the basis of and have evolved into the book 'Men, Women and the Mystery of Love'. It is simple reading, yet has delivered the important points and expounded well on PJPII's philosophical work "Love and Responsibility".

At the same time, it's a great book for group discussions like the one I participated in. There are discussion questions at the end of each chapter, and even if you're not in a group, they're great questions to think through. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in understanding relationships of all kinds. Love love LOVE this book! I read it with a group and we had weekly discussions on the week's readings.

    Profound insights about love and relationships. I haven't read John Paul II's Love and Responsibility but this book was a great summary on the main topics discussed in his book. It was an easy read and I was tempted to highlight most of the book. I would recommend this book to pretty much anyone; single, dating, engaged, or married. I'll definitely read this again in the future. Profound insights about love and relationships.

    This book is a great overview of Love and Responsibility (which is dense and kind of scary). But this book breaks it down into smaller pieces that aren't as intimidating. I feel like it still allows the spirit of JPII to shine through. It would be a good book to use in a young adult faith sharing group.

    Although some points in the book I do not agree with at all! It is an excellent book for discussion! I read it in relation to a Love&Responsibility talk held in my college and it was incredibly useful! I think it did open my eyes on certain issues and on others I got into some debates! But it was a very good point to start from and I think develop the ideas said on a more personal level.

    I read an earlier edition of this book years ago. Since then I've loaned it out & bought copies for friends. I bought the print version, the Kindle version, & when Logos/Verbum offers it, I'll get that edition, too. It really helps in studying John Paul II's Love & Responsibility.

    The arguments made here are purely on an intuitive basis. Both the author and the Pope make broad generalizations about humanity and love that many may find disagreeable. I certainly didn't agree with much of what he had to say, and it was all to easy to find exceptions and flaws in the analogies. The arguments made here are purely on an intuitive basis.
