Product Review: Set Free to Love


This isn't the usual type of book that I would read, but I agreed to review it for The Catholic Company. I like books about real events and real people, and thought that this might be interesting. "Theology of the Body" is kind of a catch phrase in Catholic culture, but I didn't really have any idea what it meant or how it could possibly pertain to my life.

Marcel LeJeune does a beautiful job of laying a foundation for someone, like myself, who has little or no experience with this. I found myself immersed into the different scenarios through testimonies by priests, nuns, single and married people. Each story presented some sort of struggle and ended with a sense of peace.

That said, I am not sure how much Set Free to Love: Lives changed by the Theology of the Body would offer to someone who, unlike myself, had a deep understanding or experience. I am not intending to turn people away from the book, but to be honest, part of the reason the book excited me is because it was all new information. The book is a fast read and is priced very reasonably at $11.99. It is the type of book that is important enough to be considered a must for a Catholic home library.
