Sex matters. Yet even deeper than the urge for sex is the desire for love. More than sexual, we are relational: meant for true and intimate relationship with each other and with God.
Rather than a "casual indoor sport," sex is sacred. And John Paul II's radical perspective on how we view life, love, and sexuality can transform our relationships into profound experiences of communion.
This is a simple introduction to the basic premise of Theology of the Body. It explains how our bodies are symbolic, free, meant for love, and redeemed by Christ. It presents unambiguous reasons for the Church's teaching on premarital sex, contraception, homosexuality, pornography, and more. And it gives reason to hope that the love we crave so deeply is, in fact, promised us by God - from the beginning.
