Who is Christopher West?

by John Smyth

This Friday Christopher West will be our guest on Charbel's weekly radio show (This Friday 31/3/17 at 8am). Who is Christopher West? He is one of the best evangelists in the world today and the most well-known teacher of Pope John Paul the Great's "Theology of the Body", a key part of the New Evangelisation. Last year Parousia Media brought Christopher West to Australia and became official partners of his Cor Project allowing thousands of Australians to hear his powerful message - if you would like to see Christopher in Australia again let us know via our speaker request page

Here is Christopher West in his own words:

I am a proud husband and father of five. My global lecturing, best selling books and multiple audio and video programs have made me 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, I lead an international outreach devoted to spreading this liberating teaching and empowering others to learn, live, and share it. My work has been featured in The New York Times, on ABC News, Fox News, MSNBC, and countless Catholic and Evangelical media outlets.

Beyond my work as a popularizer of the Theology of the Body, I have 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, I helped establish the Theology of the Body Institute near Philadelphia, Pa., and serve today as Senior Lecturer of Theology and Christian Anthropology. My week-long courses there continue to draw students from around the world.

I travel across the globe each year leading an average of 50 evening talks and full-day seminars to help spread this life-changing teaching. You can learn here about the various events I offer, which tackle many of today’s hottest cultural issues regarding marriage, family and sexuality
