calledtoloveCOVER(NEW HAVEN, CONN.) - In 1979, Pope John Paul II, drawing from the whole of the Catholic tradition, introduced to the Church and the rest of the world his "theology of the body," a rich presentation of the Church's teaching on the relationship between spirituality and the physical body.

In Called to Love: Approaching John Paul II's Theology of the Body (Doubleday Religion, on sale 4/14/09, $24.00), New York Times best-selling author Carl Anderson and Father Josť Granados build upon these teachings and further examine the tremendous gift they offer.

"Christianity is itself the fullness of love," says Anderson. He continues that the experience of love in all its different forms is worth understanding, enabling Catholics to rediscover the full treasure of this Christian tradition and integrate it into daily life.

Anderson and Granados teach that the human body beholds wonder and mystery that teaches people about love in its purest form, and that it speaks of God revealing His goodness. It also speaks of men and women and the innate human desire to love. The summary of these teachings gives a new understanding of the Christian way of love, how it directly intersects with faith and how to embrace both faith and love fully in life.

Carl Anderson is supreme knight of the Knights of Columbus and vice president of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Father Josť Granados is Assistant Professor of Patrology and Systematic Theology at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and  Family at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.
