Chruch approved NFP book


Hi. I've tried searching the forums to see if there was a definitive Catholic NFP book, but I had no luck. I thought it would be an easy search, but I couldn't find it. If anyone can direct me to a good NFP Church approved book, I would appreciate it. I'd like to give one to my daughter for Christmas. Thanks for your help.


The Art of Natural Family Planning by Sheila and John Kippley is Catholic based. They include a whole chapter on church teaching and stuff.


The Couple to Couple League is active in many Dioceses.

Thank you one and all. Exactly the answers I needed. I started out looking at one book and now I'm up to a whole set of learning materials for $150! An investment in the future, right? Pretty cool. Thanks again.
