The sexual revolution brought a terribly distorted vision of the body and sex into the mainstream.
How should Christians respond?
Confronting both the libertinism in the culture and the puritanism that often creeps into the minds and hearts of Christians, West demonstrates the critical importance of the Theology of the Body in addressing the crisis of our times and in proclaiming the Gospel to our sexually confused and broken world.
Praise for At the Heart of the Gospel:
“The light of the Gospel, which is a clear but at times painful light, can illumine human sexuality to its very depth in order to transform it and bring it to its full beauty. Here lies the great strength of Blessed John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. In his peaceful and positive response to critics, Christopher West proves once again that he is a faithful and inspiring interpreter and communicator of this great Pope’s teaching, a teaching so urgently needed for an effective proclamation of the Gospel.”
