Man, Woman, And The Meaning Of Love: God's Plan For Love, Marriage, Intimacy, And The Family
Man, Woman, and the Meaning of Love: God's Plan for Love, Marriage, Intimacy, and the Family
These days, it's hard for anyone - even the most faithful Catholic - to avoid absorbing at least some of the poisonous assumptions about love, marriage, and sex that are retailed by our hedonistic secular culture. But in Man, Woman, and the Meaning of Love, Dietrich von Hildebrand rescues love from its dreary captivity to talk-show hucksters and pop psychology gurus. With impressive clarity and insightfulness, he shows the fullness of the Christian splendor of love, marriage, and sex. Von Hildebrand explains the fundamentals of love that have been almost completely forgotten in the secular world, and are in danger of being lost even among many Catholics - including the very nature and meaning of love as God intended it to be. With remarkable practical simplicity, he then shows you how these basic truths apply to your marriage, family life, and friendships - helping you to make them what they ought to be in God's sight. Brief enough to read in one sitting but full of enough wisdom for a lifetime, Man, Woman, and the Meaning of Love gives you a sweeping, inspiring vision of Christian love. Von Hildebrand's approach is deeply imbued with his awareness of the sacramental dignity of marriage, and of how the Church's teachings on sexuality - even the most controversial - all flow from her profound understanding of love. With moving fervor, he details the new depth of freedom we acquire in loving another person, as well as the "mission" spouses have to each other, and what it demands. Von Hildebrand also shows you how to spot the signs of false love. Fearlessly and incisively, he exposes the many false notions of love that abound today - including an approach to love that is widespread among Christians and yet almost always ends in failure. Nor does he stop there! He points out other common pitfalls, including basic errors concerning the meaning and value of marriage. He even reveals the mistakes that many Christian authors make about marital sexuality! All this and more makes Man, Woman, and the Meaning of Love a valuable weapon in your efforts to take back the culture for Christ - and a handy tool to help you improve your marriage and communicate the Church's wonderful vision of love to your children.
