 More about Theology of the Body for Beginners: A Basic Introduction to Pope John Paul II's Sexual Revolution, Revised Edition

"There's been a lot of buzz about Pope John Paul II's "theology of the body," but the original body of writings is daunting for even those with a scholarly bent. Christopher West "translated" those writings into a far more approachable format with this book -  a very manageable 150-page book "for beginners". Theology of the Body for Beginners is a relatively easy read, yet it still conveys some of the most profound ideas from JPII's writings.

The publisher writes on the back of the book: "Based on the words of Jesus, John Paul II's reflections on the body and sex take us to the root of the modern crisis and chart the path to an authentic sexual liberation." That line sums up both the motivation for developing a theology of the body and the very positive view of the body and sex that JPII presents. Within this context, he also addresses the most prevalent sexual disorders of modern cultures such as promiscuity, infidelity, homosexuality, contraception, and disdain for celibacy."
