Divorce. Broken families. Sexual abuse. Pornography. Gender issues. Everywhere we look, we find more confusion about the fundamental truths of human life. As we lose our basic understanding of the meanings of man, woman, marriage, and sex, the question becomes ever more urgent: What does it mean to be a human being?

Theology of the Body for Beginners is a concise introduction to the answer to that question. Using simple, everyday language, Christopher West lays a foundation for understanding the basics of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, making his profound teachings on human sexuality easy to grasp and apply in our lives. You will discover a deeper understanding of your role in your family and in society, learn how to better love and be loved by your spouse or future spouse, and gain new insights on how to respond with clarity and compassion to hot-button issues on sexuality. The first edition of this book was released in 2004 and instantly became an international bestseller. This updated, revised edition of the original includes new insights from West’s own research in addition to wisdom from Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis.

Christopher West is a world-renowned teacher, author and speaker on St. John Paul II's "Theology of the Body". He is founder and president of The Cor Project, a global outreach ministry, and senior lecturer at the Theology of the Body Institute in Pennsylvania.

"In a culture still haunted by Gnosticism, where a wedge is so often placed between matter and spirit, soul and body, leading to distortions in our understanding of the human person, Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body is both much needed and prophetic. I’m grateful to Christopher West for making these teachings accessible to a general audience. This book offers a clear, succinct presentation of Saint John Paul II’s important ideas and is a helpful and necessary resource for catechists, evangelists, indeed all people."
Archbishop Eamon Martin

"Theology of the Body for Beginners offers a fresh perspective on this rich seam of human and divine wisdom which Saint John Paul II has left us as his gift. Cynical and utilitarian views of sexuality can easily fall prey to the temptation of misrepresenting its sacredness. They can blind us to God’s creative plan for human beings as male and female, to the inherent sacramental logic of our existence and to the ultimate fulfillment which all sexual longing seeks. This book delves beneath the superficial to discover the deepest meaning of human sexuality. But beware: You will find Christopher West’s presentation both enlightening and challenging!"
