The author, a diocesan director of marriage and family life, answers the questions about human sexuality and marriage that he always encounters in the numerous adult audiences he addresses. He provides thoughtful responses that present Catholic Church teaching in a fresh, thoroughly appealing, and convincing manner. It offers readers an easily readable, down-to-earth, and stimulating account of the reasons why the Church's teaching on sex and marriage is true, and, because it is true, good news for people today.
Christopher West is an adjunct professor of the Institute of Priestly Formation in Omaha, and a visiting professor of the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Melbourne, Australia. His books, extensive lecturing, and numerous tapes have sparked an international groundswell of interest in John Paul II's Theology of the Body.
"Christopher West has done an outstanding job in Good News About Sex and Marriage in showing how the teachings of the Church on marriage and sexuality, as presented by Pope John Paul II, actually make sense for everyone in daily life. Good News About Sex and Marriage is a must for all engaged and married couples and all those who hope to be married."
