It Is Not Too Late to Win Back Our Teens from this “Anything Goes” Culture
by Christine Schicker Monday, March 30, 2009
In Theology of His Body/Theology of Her Body, Evert helps to guide teens to an understanding of their dignity as men and women—a dignity that compels them to live out their chastity. “This book comes at a critical time, because tragically, many teens have forgotten their calling, or worse, have never heard it,” says Evert. “As a result, they don’t know who they are or who and what they are meant to be for one another. This means they often resort to ‘using’ instead of authentically loving others and themselves.”
Theology of His Body and Theology of Her Body are two books that have been published in a unique, one-volume, reverse-cover design. Teens are encouraged to “flip the book over” so they not only learn the truth of their own bodies, but also that of the opposite sex.
“At the heart of the Theology of the Body is the idea that the complimentary nature of the two sexes reveals the meaning of who we are as men and women,” says Evert. “Being able to see the world through this ‘lens’ will inspire teens to live out their lives in a way that corresponds to the dignity of who they are called to be.”
Evert knows firsthand what kind of impact the Theology of the Body can make in the lives of young adults. As co-author of the Theology of the Body for Teens program, he has seen how this unique message resonates with teens. And, as a person who speaks to hundreds of thousands of young people each year, he has witnessed the personal impact this message is having in the lives of teens.
Meghan Weaver, Chastity Program Coordinator for the Diocese of Palm Beach, says that the Theology of the Body has helped young men and women “open up to a new vision of life and sexuality. I saw them astounded that there was another way to live, another way of life that actually brought happiness, peace and joy.”
