'This is a very remarkable book, full of wisdom, humour and profound insight into the mystery of human sexuality ... In reading this book I touched again the great mystery of he divine gift of love, offered to us through a deeply wounded humanity.'

Henri J. M. Nouwen

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.

While 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.

Jean Vanier was a philosopher and theologian. He was the founder of L’Arche International and the winner of the Templeton Prize 2015 which recognises outstanding contributions to spiritual writing and to the spiritual life. He died on May 7th, 2019. He was 90.
