Divorce. Broken families. Sexual abuse. Pornography. Gender issues. Everywhere we look, we find more confusion about the fundamental truths of human life. As we lose our basic understanding of the meanings of man, woman, marriage, and sex, the question becomes ever more urgent: What does it mean to be a human being?
Against this backdrop, St. John Paul II's Theology of the Body appears as a bright light in the darkness. His writings go straight to the heart of what it means to be fully human—but they are often difficult for most of us to grasp easily.
That's where Christopher West comes in. He covers the main points of this revolutionary teaching in a way that you can understand. You'll see desire—physical, emotional, and spiritual—in a whole new light!
The first edition of this book was released in 2004 and instantly became an international bestseller. This updated, revised edition of the original includes new insights from West’s own research in addition to wisdom from Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. You'll also discover brand-new insights on how to respond with clarity and compassion to the gender chaos so prevalent in our world today.ISBN: 978-1-63582-007-2
