We Are Called...

If you are looking for something to read for the summer, you might consider Carl Anderson's new book. He is the Supreme Knight of the Knight's of Columbus. I have bought a couple of his books and they are very readable and well written.
This is a topic for our times. The Theology of the Body is something deep and rich and it applies to every human being. We are created in the image of God, of course, but do we really understand how that applies to our relationships and the most intimate aspects of our lives?
The Theology of the Body is a whole new way to learn the language of God.

Here's what Archbishop Charles Chaput has to say about it from:
“Carl Anderson and Father José Granados write with a clarity, beauty, and intelligence that make these pages a joy to read. But it’s the content that makes this book so important. In a culture that increasingly devalues human life, this is a compelling, wonderfully readable reflection on ‘the theology of the body’ and the meaning of human love and sexuality. I highly recommend it.”
H/T to American Papist.

Another great program that I have found for understanding this very deep topic is "Theology of the Body for Teens" by Jason Evert and Brian Butler.
This is a great book if you are looking for a very clear cut study of the TOTB, or are trying to be ready to discuss sexuality with your teens. My boys aren't teens, but this book has already given me a wealth of guidance about discussing relationships on their level.
