Theology of the Body for Teens: High School Edition Starter Pack
Young Catholics are surrounded by influences that challenge their faith and morals every day. These challenges call for more than a “do this, don’t do that” approach to catechesis. Teens desire truth and understanding about who they are, their purpose in life, and what will ultimately bring them happiness.
Theology of the Body for Teens presents the two hottest topics on the planet - God and sex - and “marries” then through Saint John Paul II’s compelling vision for love and life. Using a great mix of stories, real-life examples, activities, prayers, and references to the culture that teens understand, Theology of the Body for Teens: High School Edition answers the questions teens have about their own bodies, issues on sexual morality, and how they were uniquely created for greatness.
The Theology of the Body for Teen: High School Edition is divided into 12 unique segments presented by Jason & Crystalina Evert and Brian Butler that reflect the pedagogical approach of Blessed John Paul II’s revolutionary teaching. The program has been designed specifically as a Catechetical program to fit perfectly into Catholic schools, youth ministry, CCD, and homeschooling settings.
Theology of the Body for Teens: High School Edition has been granted the Imprimatur by Justin Cardinal Rigali, Archbishop of Philadelphia.
Participants will learn answers to questions such as:
- Why did God give us our sexual desires?
- What is the difference between love and lust?
- Can Christ bring healing if I’ve already “messed up”?
- How far is “too far”?
- How can teens stay pure in our oversexed culture?
- Is there any hope for overcoming lust and pornography?
- What does our sexuality teach us about God?
- What is the “language of the Body” and how do I “speak” it?
- How can I discover my vocation?

Our parish has been using the Theology of the Body for Teens curriculum, for juniors and seniors in high school. We’ve had many parents comment about how, unlike in the past, they don’t have to force their kids out the door on Wednesday evening to go to CCD, because the youth are enthused about going! And our boys' class-seniors and juniors in high school, which normally would have a very low attendance rate for CCD-has had an attendance rate of over 90%!"

Theology of the Body for Teens has been incredible. John Paul II’s teaching is so profound. The book has really brought it down to a teenage level. It opened my eyes to where I not only understand the concepts, but I see why I should live that way, and that’s the way I want to live.
