    Can I add to your list of Theology of the Body books?

    “The Splendor of Love” by Fr. Schu, LC.
    This book provides an accessible understanding of the Theology of the Body and also refers extensively to Love and Responsibility which is important, since it lays the foundation for the Theology of the Body.

    “Crossing the Threshold of Love” by Mary Shivanandan. This book is more difficult to read than the previous one but provides a thorough introduction to the Theology of the Body.
