This will be a fast, fun, and furious overview of the structure and content of St. John Paul II's "Theology of the Body" geared toward youth ministry and parenting. The goal is to familiarize youth ministers, core team volunteers, and parents with the rich catechetical content of TOB with an emphasis on a Trinitarian understanding of God, the body as a gift, human nature as always embodied, and the fullness of human love as expressed only through the body. Most Catholics subconsciously think of themselves as souls temporarily housed in a body. TOB replaces this heresy with the truth that we are embodied persons whose very nature (and salvation) is to be embodied - both in time and eternity..
