Life, Love, and Mercy: Christopher West and Mike Mangione
Fri, March 24, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM CDT
Join best-selling author Christopher West and nationally touring Americana artist Mike Mangione in an exploration of the ancient but forgotten truth that our deepest desires of body and soul are meant to lead us to the inﬁnite, to God.
What if our desires are more important than we thought?
DESIRE - Discover why as human beings we feel this universal “ache” for something more.
DESIGN - Learn what the very design of our bodies as male and female tells us about God.
DESTINY - Find out how we are created for bliss and why our hearts know this somehow.
Christopher West Speaker Bio
Christopher West is a proud husband and father of five. His global lecturing, best-selling books and multiple audio and video programs have made him the world’s most recognized teacher of John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body” – a bold, biblical vision of love and sexuality that takes us to the “cor” of what it means to be human.
As founder and president of The Cor Project, Christopher leads an international outreach devoted to spreading this liberating teaching and empowering others to learn, live, and share it. His work has been featured in The New York Times, on ABC News, Fox News, MSNBC, and countless Catholic and Evangelical media outlets.
Beyond his work as a popularizer of the Theology of the Body, Christopher has been teaching graduate and undergraduate courses on the subject since the late 1990s, having served on the faculties of St. John Vianney Theological Seminary in Denver, the Institute for Priestly Formation in Omaha, and as a visiting professor of the John Paul II Institute in Melbourne, Australia. In 2004, he helped establish the Theology of the Body Institute near Philadelphia, Pa., and serves today as Senior Lecturer of Theology and Christian Anthropology. His weeklong courses there continue to draw students from around the world.
Among Christopher’s best-selling books are Theology of the Body for Beginners, Good News About Sex & Marriage, At the Heart of the Gospel and Fill These Hearts. His latest book is Pope Francis To Go: Bite-Sized Morsels from The Joy of the Gospel, which uses Pope Francis’s apostolic exhortation The Joy of the Gospel, Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the writings of saints and other popes, and his own theology of the body-infused works to present 150- bite-sized morsels of wisdom from Pope Francis that map out the “Way of Beauty” that is at the heart of the New Evangelization.
