    Drawing on Pope John Paul IIs Theology of the Body, Christopher West shares Gods original plan for marriage and sexuality. Christopher provides an understanding of this plan and how it gives profound meaning to all our lives , married, single, and consecrated celibates.

    As a champion of the Popes revolutionary 'theology of the body," West points out the profound misunderstanding of what we understand male and female to mean. The Holy Father teaches, says Christopher, that human lifes dignity and balance depend at every moment on 'who woman will be for man and who man will be for woman.' Gods plan of life and love is literally stamped in our bodies, and we reject this plan at our own peril.

    The Theology of the Body has been called 'one of the boldest reconfigurations of Catholic theology in centuries,' according to the papal biographer, George Weigel. It addresses some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence
