Overview

The Theology of the Body: What it Means and Why It Matters in John Paul II by Richard M. Hogan

Why has Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body become such a “hot button” topic in the church today? In this illuminating and comprehensive analysis, Fr. Richard M. Hogan explains why these teachings speak so powerfully to a new generation of believers. At the heart of John Paul’s series of talks is the unchanging truth that we are created in God’s image, and so are called to love as God loves and to express that love in and through our bodies. Marriage, sexuality, celibacy, virginity, the resurrection of the body—all of these issues are covered within the pope’s expansive framework. Guided by Fr. Hogan, readers will gain a deeper understanding of important aspects of their Catholic faith while they grow in appreciation of the pope’s ability to address controversial moral topics in a new and groundbreaking way.
