Bestselling Catholic author Christopher West's new book presents a reader-friendly and popular exploration of the Pope's revolutionary teaching on human sexuality. Theology of the Body, based on the words of Jesus, is John Paul II's famous reflections on the body and sex that provides Catholics with a path to an authentic sexual liberation. Yet the Pope's dense scholarship often intimidates the average person. Christopher West has made it his life's mission to make this material accessible to the lay reader. What is the meaning of life? Why did God create us male and female? Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it? How do we attain true happiness on earth? What kind of joys await us in heaven? How can we experience the love we long for in the depth of our hearts? Through a mixture of sound theology and popular culture, West answers these questions and more.
