Christianity has long been regarded as viewing the body as a threat to a person's spiritual nature and denying its sexual dimension. In 1979, Pope John Paul II departed from this alleged dichotomy and offered an integrated vision of the human body and soul. In a series of talks that became known as "the theology of the body", he explained the divine meaning of human sexuality and why the body provides answers to fundamental questions about our lives. In Called to Love, Carl Anderson, chairman of the world's largest Catholic service organization, and Fr. Jose Granados discuss the philosophical and religious significance of "the theology of the body" in language at once poetic and profound. As they explain, the body speaks of God, it reveals His goodness, and it also speaks of men and women and their vocation to love. Called to Love brings to life the tremendous gift John Paul II bestowed on humanity and gives readers a new understanding of the Christian way of love and how to embrace it fully in their lives.
