An Introduction to the Theology of the Body:
Discovering the Master Plan for Your Life
by Christopher West

Based on John Paul II's profound teaching and presented by world-renowned speaker and author Christopher West, The Gift is a comprehensive system designed to lay a firm foundation for those who desire to learn and incorporate the Theology of the Body into their daily lives.

An Introduction to the Theology of the Body: Discovering the Master Plan for Your Life, is an eight-part, four-hour study designed to give you a solid understanding of God's plan for humanity--a plan stamped right into our bodies.

Most people have heard the "whats" of Catholic teaching, but very few have ever heard the "whys." With profound insight, Christopher West demonstrates that the Church’s teaching on human sexuality makes sense, and, in fact, is the very "logic" of Christianity—because it corresponds perfectly with the deepest stirrings and desires of the human heart. This study is for everyone searching for their ultimate purpose in life.


In this study you will:

  • Learn why the redemption of our sexuality is the key to happiness.
  • Develop a "new lens" through which to see the world with greater clarity.
  • See how God’s mystery is revealed through the body and spousal love.
  • Discover the truth behind the lies of lust and pornography and how they can be overcome.
  • Learn the language of sexual love.
    ...and much more. 

Christopher West is recognized around the world for his work teaching and promoting John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. He serves officially as a research fellow and faculty member of the Theology of the Body Institute near Philadelphia. He is the best-selling author of several books, a syndicated columnist, and one of the most sought-after speakers in the Church today, having delivered more than 1,000 public lectures on four continents, in a dozen countries, and in more than 200 American cities. Christopher is most proud to call himself a devoted husband and father. He and his wife, Wendy, live with their five children near Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
