Broken marriages, single parent families, teenage pregnancies-these are but a few indicators of the troubled family life that has spread through Europe and America in the last few decades. What has gone wrong? The emergence of these difficulties coincided with the so-called "sexual revolution" of the 1960's which for some meant abandoning all norms and taboos regarding sexual behavior.

Detailed Description
Broken marriages, single parent families, teenage pregnancies-these are but a few indicators of the troubled family life that has spread through Europe and America in the last few decades. What has gone wrong? The emergence of these difficulties coincided with the so-called "sexual revolution" of the 1960's which for some meant abandoning all norms and taboos regarding sexual behavior. Contraceptives like the pill were hailed as great liberators of women, freeing them from the domination of men and the slavery of childbearing. When the Catholic Church reaffirmed its teaching against the use of contraceptives, it was generally ignored by Catholics and ridiculed by the media. Could this radical but unheeded message have been a prophetic voice predicting the present crisis of the family?In as society where instant gratification and materialism are idolized, love is often misconceived as merely getting what you want when you want it. The contraceptive mentality transfers that misconception into married love, betraying the true meaning of sexuality and poisoning the heart of the family. In recent years, many married couples who used contraception have been waking up to this, and finding a healthy, effective alternative to responsible parenthood in Natural Family Planning. This volume gathers the testimonies of 48 such couples. Each couple has traveled a unique path, but the have all discovered the same wonderful reality: true joy in marriage and family life comes not from getting, but from giving, from undertaking the adventure of authentic, generous love.Is this true sense of love the missing cornerstone that could restore stability and vigor to family life? These testimonies offer a convincing and inspiring answer to that pressing question.p>

God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a new, supplemental marriage preparation program by renowned Catholic author and teacher Christopher West, based on Pope John Paul II's revolutionary Theology of the Body.

Detailed Description
God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is a marriage preparation supplement that offers engaged couples a more complete understanding of God's glorious plan for marriage and human sexuality than perhaps any program available in the Church today. Based on Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body, this supplement is intended to enhance a key component of marriage preparation: catechesis in the theology of marriage and the gift of human sexuality.

This DVD includes a Full-Length Version of eight talks and a Segments Version, with easy-to-use navigation menus. The forty-three shorter video segments enable marriage preparation facilitators to utilize select aspects of the original video program while enhancing their own live presentations of the God's Plan content. (Segment descriptions can be found in the accompanying guide.)

The Holy Father teaches that human life's dignity and balance depends at every moment on "who woman will be for man and who man will be for woman." God's plan of life and love is literally stamped in our bodies. Here, you will find a much-needed testimony to the essential interrelation between love, life, and sexuality, and discover how a deep appreciation for this interrelation is the path to a blessed and joy-filled marriage.

The Theology of the Body has been called "one of the boldest reconfigurations of Catholic Theology in centuries," according to George Weigel, the pope's official biographer. It addresses some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence, including:
Why were we created male and female?
Where do we come from and why?
What is the meaning of life? How do we experience it?
Why is there evil in the world and how do we overcome it?
