Theology of the Body
As Saint John Paul II’s masterwork, the Theology of the Body (TOB) provides beautiful and compelling answers to the deepest questions we all ask ourselves:
Who am I?
Why am I here?
How can I be happy?
Why do I experience all these deep longings in my body and soul and what am I to do with them?
What is my ultimate destiny and how do I get there?
In the midst of the profound sexual crisis that is wreaking havoc in both the secular world and in the Church, the TOB offers the hope of healing and restoration we all so desperately need, enabling everyone to rediscover not only the meaning of our creation as male and female, but through that, “the meaning of the whole of existence, the meaning of life” (TOB 46:6).
There is little doubt that pre-teens are in an often confusing time of quest and discovery, especially with issues concerning their bodies, their sexuality, and their future. There are countless sources—from the airwaves, to peers, to the internet—ready to provide answers.
The Theology of the Body for Teens: Middle School Edition Student Workbook presents the revolutionary teachings of St. John Paul II to middle school students in a way that is relevant, easy-to-follow, and entertaining.
Theology of the Body is easily broken down into two basic questions, or parts.
1. Part I: What does it mean to be human?
(Versus being an animal, a robot, etc.)
2. Part II:
What is true happiness and how can I find it?
