Item description for God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage: A Marriage Preparation Supplement Designed to Help Couples Understand and Embrace... (Theology Of The Body Programs) by Christopher West...
Overview The Couples Workbook will guide participants during their participation in the God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage program with thought-provoking questions, inspiring quotes, and helpful commentary. This workbook is designed to accompany the corresponding lessons from the DVDs or CDs. God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a marriage preparation supplement that offers engaged couples a more complete understanding of God's glorious plan for marriage and human sexuality than perhaps any program available in the Church today. Based on Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body, this supplement is intended to enhance a key component of marriage preparation: catechesis in the theology of marriage and the gift of human sexuality.
Publishers Description God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a new, supplemental marriage preparation program by renowned Catholic author and teacher Christopher West. Based on Pope John Paul II's revolutionary Theology of the Body and the book Good News About Sex & Marriage, this program has a two-fold goal: to present a summary of Catholic teaching on God's plan for marriage, and to offer engaged couples practical suggestions for embracing this plan in their own lives. The Holy Father teaches that human life's dignity and balance depends at every moment on ?who woman will be for man and who man will be for woman.? God's plan of life and love is literally stamped in our bodies. Here, you will find a much-needed testimony to the essential interrelation between love, life, and sexuality, and discover how a deep appreciation for this interrelation is the path to a blessed and joy-filled marriage. The Theology of the Body has been called "one of the boldest reconfigurations of Catholic Theology in centuries," according to George Weigel, the pope's official biographer. It addresses some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence, including: Why were we created male and female? Where do we come from and why? What is the meaning of life? How do we experience it? Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it? The God's Plan workbook and the DVD series are perfect for Marriage Prep classes or for use as a supplement with an existing Pre-Cana program.
