Christopher West’s At the Heart of the Gospel…

…is an awesome book.

It’s the most reflective writing I’ve seen from West. He makes the crucial point that if we Christians can reclaim the human body as an icon that points to God, then we can evangelize the world. The Catholics of Patheos are using it to have a great discussion concerning sexuality, the Theology of the Body and all that beautiful stuff, over at the Patheos Book Club. (I especially enjoyed Brandon Vogt’s writeup, which gives the book its proper background.) So go there!

But even more importantly, BUY THE BOOK!
