BRUCHALSKI JOH The sexual revolution brought a terribly distorted vision of the body and sex into the mainstream. How should Christians respond? With his illuminating Theology of the Body, Pope Saint John Paul II challenged the modern world not to stop at the surface, but to enter the depth of the “great mystery” that the body and sex reveal: a mystery that lies at the heart of the Gospel itself.

Christian Courtship in an Over Sexe Contraception Deception : Catholic Teaching On Birth Control Every Young Man's Battle: Strategies for Victory in the Real World of Sexual Temptation
Christian Courtship in an Over Sexe
Gloria Deo Price: $13.95
Morrow, Rev. T By Patrick Coffin

The Contraception Deception: Catholic Teaching on Birth Control by author Patrick Coffin is a comprehensive assessment of the Church's sexual ethic. In this expanded revised edition of Sex Au Naturel: What It is and Why It's Good for Your Marriage, Coffin demonstrates how the rejection of Humanae Vitae impacts more than just our national birthrates.

With relevant insight into the development and reception of Paul VI's landmark 1968 encyclical, Coffin explains why Humanae Vitae is more timely than ever. In The Contraception Deception, you'll learn where exactly the Bible teaches against birth control, the differences between contraception and natural family planning (hint: they're more profound than you think), why other reproductive technologies fall short of God's vision for marriage and family, and-most importantly-how to rely on the ever-present grace of God rather than your own strength in faithfully following this challenging, life-giving aspect of Christian discipleship.
Every Young Man’s Battle shows you how to rise above today's debased, self-seeking culture by examining God's standard, training your eyes and mind, cleaning up your thought life, and developing a plan. With extensive updates for a new generation of men, this is the award-winning guide to practical resistance. Bottom line: these strategies are biblical and they have worked for millions of men.
Facing the Facts: The Truth About Sex and You Gay And Catholic: Accepting My Sexuality, Finding Community, Living My Faith Good Pictures Bad Pictures: Porn-Proofing Today's Young Kids
By Stan & Brenna Jones

Designed for children ages 11 to 14, Facing the Facts equips kids to understand and deal with the changes of puberty. It also examines why God intends sex for marriage, discusses love and dating, and answers tough questions about sexuality.

This book is part of the "God's Design for Sex" series. The titles in the series include:

n this first book from an openly lesbian and celibate Catholic, widely published writer and blogger Eve Tushnet recounts her spiritual and intellectual journey from liberal atheism to faithful Catholicism and shows how gay Catholics can love and be loved while adhering to Church teaching.

Eve Tushnet was among the unlikeliest of converts. The only child of two atheist academics, Tushnet was a typical Yale undergraduate until the day she went out to poke fun at a gathering of political conservatives, who happened also to be Catholic. Instead of enjoying mocking what she termed the "zoo animals," she found herself engaged in intellectual conversation with them and, in a move that surprised even her, she soon converted to Catholicism. Already self-identifying as a lesbian, Tushnet searched for a third way in the seeming two-option system available to gay Catholics: reject Church teaching on homosexuality or reject the truth of your sexuality. Gay and Catholic is the fruit of Tushnet's searching: what she learned in studying Christian history and theology and her articulation of how gay Catholics can pour their love and need for connection into friendships, community, service, and artistic creation.

In his theology of the body, John Paul II made an important contribution to answering this question. Here Brian Bransfield provides a systematic approach to his teaching, using it as a basis for an integrated moral theology/Christian anthropology that gives practical support in living the Christian life. By Pope Paul VI

The question of human procreation, like every other question which touches human life, involves more than ]€] biology, psychology, demography or sociology. It is the whole man and the whole mission to which he is called that must be considered: both its natural, earthly aspects and its supernatural, eternal aspects." "€" Pope Paul VI, Humanae Vitae

Pope Paul VI's prophetic encyclical Humanae Vitae, issued in 1968, presented the Church's consistent teachings on marriage and contraception to the modern world "€" a world that demanded then, as it does now, that the Church adapt her teachings to itself. Standing calmly and firmly against a culture that sees contraception and abortion as individual choices, Humanae Vitae shows us what it means to share in the creative work of God. Paul VI lays out God's plan for human sexuality, a plan that invites married couples to celebrate the incredible gifts of human love and human life.

Humanae Vitae is a loving and honest look at the benefits and the challenges of Church teaching, and a call to the Church to provide guidance and support for couples as they strive to live out God's design for human life and marriage.

Evert, Jason As the Church and the world remember the fiftieth anniversary of Humanae Vitae, Catholic Answers Press is publishing an important new multi-contributor exposition of that prophetic encyclical - Inseparable: Five Perspectives on Sex, Life, and Love in Defense of Humanae Vitae.

Given the richness of Catholic teaching on the transmission of human life and the different ways—due to their temperaments, habits of mind, and life circumstances—that people respond to it, we asked our contributors to reflect on and defend that teaching from five perspectives: each of them compelling, all of them together forming a mosaic of truth.

   Biblical foundations of conjugal love
   Nature Law and human telos
   Personalism and the “language of the body”
   Historical lessons from contraceptive culture
   The witness of lived experience

Contributors include some of the most knowledgeable and incisive writers on these subjects today:

   Joseph Atkinson: associate professor of Sacred Scripture, John Paul II Institute, Washington, D.C.
   Paul Gondreau: professor of theology, Providence College
   Mark Latkovic: professor of moral and systematic theology, Sacred Heart Major Seminary
   Allan Carlson: distinguished visiting professor of history and politics, Hillsdale College; author, Godly Seed: American Evangelicals Confront Birth Control
   Shaun and Jessica McAfee: Shaun is the founder of Epic Pew and author of Reform Yourself! Together they contributed to Surprised by Life.

All share a joyful conviction in the truth of Humanae Vitae and a desire to promote and defend it.

His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke contributes the foreword.
Living the Truth in Love grew out of the desire to provide answers to the questions posed for the Synod on Marriage called by Pope Francis:
  • How can the Christian community give pastoral attention to families with persons with same-sex attraction?
  • While avoiding any unjust discrimination, how can the Church give such persons pastoral care in light of the Gospel?
  • How can God's will be proposed to them in their situation?

A generation ago, Christian parents didn't have to worry about how to explain transgenderism to their nine-year-old, or help their teenager deal with mockery at school for believing in traditional marriage. But today, as our culture's moral center continues to fly apart and all publicly aired and celebrated, we have no choice but to equip our kids to understand and own the truth. In Made This Way, Leila Miller and Trent Horn give parents (guardians and teachers, too!) crucial techniques to form children ( from tots to teens) with the understanding they need appropriate to their age and maturity level to meet the world' s challenges. Their secret lies in an approach that begins not with the Bible or Church teaching but with the natural law. In kid-friendly ways, Miller and Horn help you communicate how the right way to live is rooted in the way we' re made.

Topics include: Living Together Outside of Marriage, Same-Sex Marriage, Divorce, Contraception, Abortion, Reproductive Technologies, Modesty, Pornography, Transgenderism, Homosexuality.

Silence can no longer be an option. If we' re not teaching our children how to understand tough moral issues, then the world will!

Doyle, Fletche Timothy P. O'Malley

"Hookup culture is about much more than the quest for pleasure. It offers an easy way out of real communication and lasting relationships. It also teaches us to treat each other as objects for personal satisfaction. Even those who reject the hookup culture can still be negatively affected by it and develop poor habits of relating to others. In Off the Hook, Timothy P. O'Malley, professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame, shows how God's plan for love serves to heal the wounds of hookup culture and is a medicine for what ails our understanding of sex, romance, love, and marriage"--
By Mary Beth Bonacci

Mary Beth Bonacci has spoken to hundreds of thousands of people across the country and around the world-about friendship, about relationships, about marriage, about God's plan for sexuality, and about finding real, honest love.

And they speak back to her. They ask her questions-about sex, about dating, about healing after a shattered relationship, about marriage, about their struggles to live love. In this newly updated and expanded edition of Real Love, Mary Beth shares those questions-and her answers-in an even more comprehensive guide which addresses the details of the very real struggle we all face in trying to live real love in a world gone mad.

Through these questions and her answers, Mary Beth offers a comprehensive catechesis of the Church's teaching in the areas of marriage and human sexuality. She tackles the toughest issues-premarital sex, contraception, divorce, homosexuality, internet pornography and others. She gives practical advice on living the Church's teachings. And throughout it all, she demonstrates that living respect for God's gift of sexuality is the way-the only way-to find real, honest love.

"Looking for a book with staying power? Mary Beth takes the heart of Theology of the Body and breaks it down into practical, real-life situations. If you're looking for a resource to help you understand for your self, or to help you teach others the heart of the message about sexuality, healthy dating relationships, and everything in between, Real Love is it."
- Jim Beckman, Author God Help Me, Director of Youth Ministry, Augustine Institute

"Real Love is, hands down, one of the most effective books out there for conveying that chastity isn't about saying ‘no' to sex, but ‘YES' to freedom, happiness and the kind of love we were made for."
- Chris Stefanick, Speaker and Author, Director of Youth Outreach, yDisciple

"Real Love is a spirit-filled solid compass that guides one safely through the wild jungle of secular values. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to experience a stable, happy and meaningful life in the context of encountering true love in relationships - the way God intended. The lessons I learned from Real Love helped me to make sense of God's intention for love in relationships. I attribute my passion for chastity and the joy I have encountered in my marriage to Real Love. Thank you MaryBeth for sharing the wisdom and love of God plainly and powerfully."
