Annual Theology of the Body Lecture, delivered by noted speaker and author Dr Eduardo J Echeverria, Professor of Philosophy and Theology in the Graduate School of Theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary, Detroit, Michigan, USA. His most recent books are Dialogue of Love, Confessions of an Evangelical Catholic Ecumenist (2010), and “In the Beginning. . .” A Theology of the Body (2011) described as a major contribution to our understanding of the Theology of the Body, providing us with the biblical, theological and foundations of John Paul II's thought. He shows us how the pope's Theology of the Body deepens our understanding of the Catholic teaching that 'the human body shares in the dignity of the 'image of God'' (Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 364).
