Eclipse of the Body by Christopher West


Product Description

Eclipse of the Body: How we Lost the Meaning of Sex, Gender, Marriage, & Family (And How to Reclaim It)

The definitions of marriage, gender, sex, and family have been obscured, shadowed, and re-defined in today's culture. Why is this happening? What needs to happen in our culture for these things to become clear again?

In this easy-to-read booklet, Christopher West provides insight into what lies at the heart of the chaos in today's world and how St. John Paul II's Theology of the Body provides a key antidote for the issues we face.

Praise for Christopher West's Writing

"In a culture still haunted by Gnosticism, where a wedge is so often placed between matter and spirit, soul and body, leading to distortions in our understanding of the human person, Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body is both much needed and prophetic. I’m grateful to Christopher West for making these teachings accessible to a general audience."

—Bishop Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles, Founder of Word on Fire.
