Theology of the Body - Christopher West

What is Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body?


Theology of the Body, Christopher West, Pope John Paul II, Love, Sex and the Catholic ChurchAs explained so well by Christopher West and Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio, the 'Theology of the Body' is Pope John Paul II's integrated vision of the human person - body, soul, and spirit.  Christopher West's work lays out Pope John Paul II's vision, showing that the physical human body has a specific meaning and is capable of revealing answers regarding fundamental questions about us and our lives.  The questions addressed by the theology of the Body are these: 

  • Is there a real purpose to life and if so, what is it?

  • Why were we created male and female? Does it really matter if we are one sex or another?

  • Why were man and woman called to communion from the beginning? What does the marital union of a man and woman say to us about God and his plan for our lives?

  • What is the purpose of the married and celibate vocations?

  • What exactly is "Love"?

  • Is it truly possible to be pure of heart?

All of these questions and many more, says West, are answered in Pope John Paul II's 129 Wednesday audiences on the Theology of the Body, which were given between the years 1979 and 1984.  John Paul's reflections are based on Scripture (especially the Gospels, St. Paul and the Book of Genesis), and contain a vision of the human person truly worthy of man.  Pope John Paul II discusses who man was in the beginning, who he is now (after original sin), and who he will be in the age to come. Through simple and easy to understand materials, Christopher West and Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio will help you apply the Pope's message to the vocations of marriage and celibacy in preparation for the Kingdom of Heaven.

 

Christopher West and Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio will help break Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body down into an easy to understand format that will change your life!


 

"Brace yourself! If we take in what the Holy Father is saying in his Theology of the Body, we will never view ourselves, view others, view the Church, the Sacraments, grace, God, heaven, marriage, the celibate vocation…we will never view the world the same way again." - Christopher West
