About this Book:

It's time for an updated, compelling, teen-friendly explanation of God's plan for life, love, marriage, and sex, in light of St. John Paul II's Theology of the Body, (often referred to simply as TOB). That's exactly what God's Plan for You provides.

This is a useful update to a very popular book that works well for individual reading but also for group study and discussion. It's an excellent resource for youth ministers, catechists, pastors, and parents, as well as a must-read for Catholic teens.

Although the text deals with many difficult issues, TOB provides a helpful framework that young people can relate to, and this book provides a clear and entertaining understanding of TOB. Author David Hajduk breaks it down into easy-to-understand components, unfolding layer after layer of understanding that the reader can easily assimilate.

Features & Benefits:

  • New revised edition gives added insights
  • Concise description of TOB for teens
  • Based and rooted in Scripture
  • Finishes each chapter with notable quotes and vocabulary
  • Includes study/discussion questions at the end of each chapter
  • Brings readers back to Catechism of the Catholic Church via reading assignments

Katherine Bogner says...
This new revised edition of Gods Plan for You is a perfect handbook for teens as a tool to help them understand that they were created by love and for love. It breaks St. John Paul IIs Theology of the Body into bite sized pieces while retaining depth. Beginning with the foundations of the goodness of the body, the purpose of creation, and complementarity of male & female, it then moves into tougher topics like contraception, homosexuality, and cohabitation. The text itself can be heavy, but is broken up by quotes from Scripture, Catechism references, "Did U Know?" facts, Notable Quotables, JP2 in his own words, and closes each chapter with several questions to ponder and share. Those questions would lend themselves perfectly for families who want to read this with their teen and then dive into the material of the text without being stuck with vague open ended questions like, "So what did you think of this chapter?..." The only thing lacking in my opinion is a good index. This is the kind of book that a teen (or an adult supporting a teen) probably isnt going to read cover to cover, but might like to pick up and read about a specific topic. There is a Table of Contents, but the titles are short quips related to the content, so it takes some flipping to find a certain topic. Overall though, this is a fabulous and approachable resource for introducing Theology of the Body. ***Pauline Books & Media provided me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Carolyn Astfalk says...
Gods Plan for You is a thoughtful, well-organized presentation of Catholic Churchs teaching on what the subtitle says (Life, Love, Marriage & Sex) with a heavy emphasis on Pope St. John Paul IIs Theology of the Body. The information is presented in a logical sequence, each chapter building on the one previous. The sometimes heady TOB teachings are distilled for readers while snippets of the original text can be found in the margins - which makes the book visually interesting as well. (I also appreciated seeing references to Pope Franciss teaching too.) Questions at the end of each chapter make the book appropriate for informal group or classroom use. The book read smoothly and felt like a TOB refresher for me. Well done!
