THE GOSPEL OF THE BODY AND THE LITTLE WAY: Living St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body with the Help of St. Therese of Lisieux (Christopher West, Spring 2018)
"Brace yourself! If we take in what [John Paul II] is saying in his Theology of the Body, we will never view ourselves, view others, view the Church, the Sacraments, grace, God, heaven, marriage, the celibate vocation...we will never view the world the same way again." -Christopher West
