Christopher West - Edition Ascension Press - West Chester - 2004 - 151 p. *

According to Pope John Paul II, if we live according to the true meaning of our sexuality, we "fulfill the very meaning of [our] being and existence." The human body is a "theology" because it is meant to be a sign of God’s own life and love in the world. With clarity and precision, Christopher West unpacks John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, translating it into a language everyone can understand.

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 ?
