Good News About Sex & Marriage (2018 REVISED) (PAPERBACK)
“While the good news about sex, gender, and marriage remains the same as ever, cultural attitudes have shifted dramatically since this book was first released in 2000. Since that time, the logic of the sexual revolution hasn’t only marched forward—it has sprinted,” writes Christopher West. His updated and expanded edition of the bestselling Good News about Sex and Marriage not only keeps pace with changes in society, it grounds our footsteps in the timeless and trustworthy teaching of the Church.
West strives to respond to the sincere, pointed questions he hears from those he encounters in his speaking and teaching with sincere, direct and thorough responses that address this most intimate area of human life. His teaching is rooted in St. John Paul II's revolutionary Theology of the Body. New in this edition is a much-needed chapter on questions of gender identity.
Learn the “whys” behind the “whats” of Church teaching as Christopher uses John Paul II’s Theology of the Body to answer the most common questions, objections, and misunderstandings.
Chapters on divorce and annulments, pre-marital sex, marital sex, contraception, infertility and reproductive technologies, homosexuality, and Christian celibacy allow Christopher to address virtually every conceivable topic. If your education in sexual morality amounted to “Thou shalt not,” you will be blown away by the beauty and splendor of the “good news” that West unfolds in this book!
“It’s my heartfelt prayer that, whatever your state and stage in life, this book will help you in your quest to know, understand, live, and experience the beautiful truth about human love. For that’s where we find the image of the divine, a foretaste of heaven—the consummate satisfaction of all our most intimate longings.” — from the introduction
