The world tells us that freedom is the ability to do what we want, whenever we want, with whomever we want. But has this led to strong relationships, strong families, or strong communities? Since the days of the sexual revolution, the opposite has played out. Sexual chaos, exploitation, broken families, and a lot of pain have been the result of freedom.
Recognizing the world s confusion, Pope John Paul II proclaimed the Theology of the Body a profound message of love and human sexuality. He turned the notion of freedom on its head, declaring it to be selflessrather than selfish. He says freedom exists for the sake of love. Authentic freedom, therefore, always asks what is the good of the other person, not what s in it for me?
In this powerful, five-part study for young adults, popular author and presenter Christopher West lays out a convincing and refreshing road map to living a life of freedom. The concepts presented in this study will change everything, including your worldview.
