Theology of the Body For Teens (High School)


Author: Brian Butler, and Jason & Crystalina Evert

Young Catholics are surrounded by influences that challenge their faith and morals every day. These challenges call for more than a "do this, don't do that" approach to catechesis. Teens desire truth and understanding about who they are, their purpose in life, and what will ultimately bring them happiness.

Theology of the Body for Teens presents the two hottest topics on the planet - God and sex - and "marries" then through Pope John Paul II's compelling vision for love and life. Using a great mix of stories, real-life examples, activities, prayers, and references to the culture that teens understand, Theology of the Body for Teens answers the questions teens have about their own bodies, issues on sexual morality, and how they were uniquely created for greatness.

The Theology of the Body for Teens program is divided into 12 unique segments presented by Jason & Crystalina Evert and Brian Butler that reflect the pedagogical approach of John Paul II's revolutionary teaching. The program has been designed specifically as a Catechetical program to fit perfectly into Catholic schools, youth ministry, CCD, and homeschooling settings.

Theology of the Body for Teens has been granted the Imprimatur by Justin Cardinal Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia.
