The body is something Christians have often been ashamed of, seeing it as debased, shameful, and a barrier to spiritual perfection. Published to coincide with the beatification of John Paul II, Jim McManus explains the late pope’s original and profound teaching about the sacredness of the body and how, with the soul and the spirit, it is a key part of our God-given humanity. By reading this book you will gain a new understanding of the dignity of your body, and how it is only through this embodiment that we can be “images” of God.
