Product Description

Broken families, abortion, AIDS, Internet pornography, clergy abuse, homosexual "Marriage" - our Church and world is in the midst of a profound sexual crisis.

Is there a way out?

For such a time as this we have been given Pope John Paul II and his "theology of the body." Based on the words of Jesus, John Paul II's reflections on the body and sex take us to the root of the modern crisis and chart the path to an authentic sexual liberation. Yet the Pope's profound scholarship often intimidates the average person.

In his previous book, Theology of the Body Explained, Christopher West offered a more detailed, five-hundred-page commentary on John Paul II's theology of the body. Here, he provides a short and popular summary of the Pope's revolutionary teaching.

Theology of the Body for Beginners explores the profound interconnections between sex and the deepest questions of human existence, including:

  • What is the meaning of life?
  • Why did God create us male and female?
  • How do we attain true happiness on earth?
  • What kind of joys await us in heaven?
  • Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it?
  • How can we experience the love we long for in the depth of our hearts?

Christopher West is widely recognized for his work popularizing John Paul II's theology of the body. His books (Good News About Sex & Marriage and Theology of the Body Explained), extensive lecturing, and numerous tapes have sparked an international groundswell of interest in the subject. Christopher teaches the theology of the body at St. John Vianney Seminary in Denver, the Institute of Priestly Formation in Omaha, and at the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family in Melbourne, Australia. He and his wife Wendy live in Pennsylvania with their three children.
