Product Description


Our Church and the world are in the middle of a severe sexual crisis, with broken families, abortion, AIDS, Internet pornography, sexual abuse scandals, and homosexual marriage. Is there any hope?

Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body has been made available to us for a limited time. John Paul II's famous thoughts on the body and sex, based on Jesus' words, take us to the root of the current predicament and pave the route to genuine sexual liberty. The average individual, however, is often intimidated by the Pope's thick scholarship.

Christopher West wrote a six-hundred-page commentary on John Paul II's Theology of the Body in his book Theology of the Body for Beginners. He gives a brief and accessible overview of the Pope's revolutionary message.

  • What is the meaning of life?
  • Why did God create us male and female?
  • Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it?
  • How do we attain true happiness on earth?
  • What kind of joys await us in heaven?
  • How can we experience the love we long for in the depth of our hearts?

The first edition of Theology of the Body for Beginners (2004) quickly became an international best-seller. This freshly revised and expanded edition is based on Dr. Michael Waldstein's much improved translation of John Paul II's catechesis.

New for this edition:

  • All quotations have been updated with the new translation.
  • Key insights discovered through Dr. Waldstein's access to the John Paul II archives have been incorporated.
  • The outline of the text has been substantially reorganized to reflect the newly discovered outline of John Paul's original manuscript.
  • John Paul's "hidden" and previously untranslated addresses are summarized.
