On the Meaning of Sex

What is the meaning of sex?



'“Rarely have I read in so few pages a book as thought-provoking and compelling. . . . With this magnificent book on the most confused and misunderstood issue of our age, J. Budziszewski enters the pantheon of living Christian writers.”—Chronicles“J. Bud (as we, his faithful readers, refer to him) serenely avoids the usual pitfalls in this lucid and blessedly concise overview. No forced jocularity here, no prissiness, no muddle.”—Christianity Today“Charmingly simple and simply charming . . . An elegant, passionate book . . . A welcome clarion call to return to a more purposeful and intelligent way of understanding. Recommended.”—Choice“Budziszewski’s logic is flawless . . . Eminently readable and powerful.”—Anthony Esolen, author of Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child“Engaging, illuminating . . . Read it and rediscover the mystery, beauty, and grandeur of human sexuality.”—Colleen Carroll Campbell, EWTN“An eloquent, engaging description of the beauty of men, women, and sexuality . . . It hands on the wisdom of our forebears with care and winsomeness.”—Public Discourse“You need to read it.”—James V. Schall, SJ, Georgetown University, author of Another Sort of Learning“In an era when the very idea of ‘truth’ is under assault, Budziszewski presents a powerful counterargument that is an eloquent defense of human reason—especially needed when we take up such fraught subjects as sex.”—Jean Bethke Elshtain, author of Sovereignty: God, State, and Self“I teach a course on ‘Philosophy of Human Sexuality,’ and I must have read fifty to a hundred books on the topic. On the Meaning of Sex is, quite simply, number one.”—Peter Kreeft, Boston College, coauthor of Handbook of Christian Apologetics“In a style of argument reminiscent of C. S. Lewis, Budziszewski articulates the thoughts that so many young men and women begin to discern but seldom develop.“—Mark Regnerus, author of Forbidden Fruit '
