Set Free to Love

Set Free to Love shows the powerful, life-changing effects of reading and studying John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. Through a series of stories from people of different ages, stages, vocations, and with quite varied life experiences, the reader is given some valuable insights into the teachings of the theology of the body and how they have completely changed the way many view the human body, sexuality, marriage, celibacy, and how God intends for us to glorify Him through these gifts.
The implications of the Biblical interpretations in Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body by John Paul II has revolutionized the way men and women see and treat themselves and others. My primary reason for reading this book after already having read and been thoroughly impressed by the masterpiece by Pope John Paul II is that the rather long tome is easier for me to recommend than it is for others to purchase and commit to reading cover-to-cover.
I was right in figuring that this book would serve as a good introduction and inspiration to delve into the true source of such wisdom, insight, and revelation into God’s creation of man and woman. The true stories contained in it definitely give a sufficiently intriguing look into the teachings of the theology of the body and how they have transformed many people’s thoughts, actions, lifestyles, even their career paths to be more in line with God’s will and unconditional love.
Now, I have found, Set Free to Love, a well-written and thought out 84 page book to recommend as a sample that will entice those serious about Bible study, God’s view of and love for creation, and/or the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church to put the time and effort into reading and learning more about the theology of the body.
