In response to a world awash in sexual chaos and gender confusion, bestselling author, cultural commentator, and popular theologian Christopher West makes John Paul II's life-changing teaching on human life, love, and sexuality accessible to all Christians.

"[A] much-needed and timely work. . . . [West makes] John Paul II's Theology of the Body accessible and relatable to the whole body of Christ."
--Eric Metaxas (from the foreword)

"No one has done as much to make the Theology of the Body accessible to ordinary people as Christopher West. Our Bodies Tell God's Story presents John Paul II's biblical reflections in a way that Christians of all denominations and traditions will appreciate. This is the book Christians need to equip themselves with in order to respond to the sexual revolution."
--Ryan T. Anderson, author of When Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment and Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom

"Protestants are long overdue for serious and substantial engagement with Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body. West's valuable introduction to the work is the best sort of appetizer: it satisfies but does so by deepening the reader's interest in moving on to the main course. This clear and persuasive introduction should be read and wrestled with by evangelical pastors and laypeople everywhere."
--Matthew Lee Anderson, founder and lead writer at MereOrthodoxy.com; author of Earthen Vessels: Why Our Bodies Matter to Our Faith

"For those wanting a Christian understanding of sex and God's wonderful creation of men and women, this very readable text is the place to start. It is an important book for Catholic, evangelical, and Orthodox Christians, especially those struggling with the confusion about such things that are embraced by post-Christian America. Our culture has become unmoored from the traditional faith, and West brings us back to those ancient paths by presenting a proper understanding of sex, gender, love, and marriage."
--Thomas S. Buchanan, senior editor, Touchstone
