Overview

The Thinking Theologically About... series helps senior highs to think theologically about personal choices and serious (and sometimes controversial) issues such as money, the human body, popular culture, and economic disparity. The series empowers students to develop skills in thinking critically rather than just working from opinion. Each volume includes six sessions with options for customizing, plus worship ideas (for use in the final session). The leader guide gives detailed plans and background material.

Youth struggle with the messages of our culture's standards of beauty. Problems with body image manifest in eating disorders, low self-esteem, excessive attention to appearance, and poor relationships. Looking at the issue through the theological framework of Scripture, tradition, experience, and reason will give youth a firmer foundation upon which to build a healthy body image and faith.
