Abstract:

"On the Body is unlike any other by this author. It is carefully structured in five parts, and is a major study on the catechesis of the human body and the spirit that lies within. The content for this work comes out of the Cardinal's twenty years as a bishop and it is from this experience that he regards this topic as being central theologically, anthropologically, and pedagogically. Above all, the book expresses the over concern that consumes our fitness-oriented body culture that has become such a huge phenomenon in our time."--BOOK JACKET.
