Introduction to Theology of the Body -
Christopher West - 4 CD Set
Drawing on Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, Christopher West shares God’s original plan for marriage and sexuality. Christopher provides an understanding of this plan and how it gives profound meaning to all our lives – married, single, and consecrated celibates.
As a champion of the Pope’s revolutionary “theology” of the body, West points out the profound misunderstanding of what we understand male and female to mean. John Paul II teaches that human life’s dignity and balance depends at every moment on “who woman will be for man and who man will be for woman.” God’s plan of life and love is literally stamped in our bodies, and we reject this plan at our own peril.
John Paul II's Theology of the Body has been called “one of the boldest reconfiguration of Catholic theology in centuries,” according to the papal biographer, George Weigel. It addresses some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence, including:
Why were we created male and female?
Where do we come from and why?
What is the meaning of life? How do we experience it?
Why is their evil in the world and how do we overcome it?
