From the CD Sleeve: If you can’t say “no” to sexual desires, what is your “yes” worth? Freedom exists for the sake of love. However, the modern idea of it leads to slavery. In this enlightening presentation, Christopher West shows us how authentic sexual freedom can deliver us from the empty promises of “sexual liberation”. Christopher is a popular theologian who specializes in making the dense scholarship of Pope John Paul II’s "Theology of the Body" accessible to a wide audience.
My take: I really, really liked this CD. Christopher West shares from his own life and struggles. He has an ability to make deep theology and sex make sense. He has spent the last decade or so distilling Saint John Paul II's teachings so that the average person can not only understand them, but live them. In our day and age when Freedom means doing whatever you want, we learn that True Freedom is doing what we should.
In this CD West gives an example of freedom, from all places, a prisoner in jail, from the movie Shawshank Redemption. Click here for the video from the movie to which he refers.
