CD/DVD/BOOKS: Theology of the Body, Christopher West

Before Pope John Paul II became Pope, he wrote a series of documents called the “Theology of the Body.” For the past few years, Christopher West has been preaching this message through seminars, CDs and books. All he says is based on the Pope’s teaching and I was given a CD of his by a priest. He actually has a speech airing every week on EWTN.

Anyway he goes into DETAIL about how to live out our sexually the way we were created to and I promise that if you give this teaching of John Paul II a chance, it WILL change you view on sex and thus, your life. His website is which has his free articles, books/cds or go to and search theology. There should be a few of his books there explaining the theology.

Hearing this theology of the body is great for both men and women and all ages, single or married. One thing it isn’t is a list of do’s and don’ts but it will untwists the sexual lie that our culture has created.

Hope you give it a chance!

Ascension Press also has loads of studies on Theology of the Body for Adults and Teens. There is lots to choose from for individual study or group study.

They also recently launched a marriage prep supplemental program: God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage. This is also by Christopher West and based on Theology of the Body.

Lots to choose from! :wink:
