 Our Description

"Dr. Wetzel has provided parents with an excellent aid to teach their adolescent children about God's gift of sexuality to the human person. He uses the Bible, Catechism, Church documents, and Papal writings to show how the Catholic Church is very much the authoritative teacher in human affairs." - Most Rev. Fabian Bruskewitz, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska

"Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents is the best handbook for Catholic parents, Catholic teachers, Catholic priests, Catholic bishops, and mature adolescents that I have ever read. Everything that any parent needs to know, in order to lovingly impart Catholic teaching on questions dealing with human sexuality, is contained within this volume. The glossary, the index, and the test questions, not to mention the certification and appendices all add to the useful nature of this volume and are the frosting on the scrumptious cake! Anyone who is truly committed to raising a child in the way of the Lord, even among those who are not Catholic, should be praising God for Dr. Wetzel's effort. This volume is incredibly well-written and inspired. Of that there is no doubt." - Judie Brown, Founder and President of the American Life League

Catholicism has been in a crisis of sexuality education for decades. Very few Catholic teenagers and young adults know and love the unsurpassable teachings of the Church on sexuality. Even in homes where Catholic values are strongly emphasized, the children often fall into serious sexual sin as adolescents and young adults. To address this urgent need, Dr. Richard Wetzel, who gave us the incalculably valuable book, Sexual Wisdom, now offers the course he gives to his own 16 to 17 year-old Catholic teens: Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adolescents.

Every Catholic teenager should take this course, even if the student has had sexuality education in school.

This book is authentically Catholic, with highlights from the Theology of the Body. It is the first course of its kind - truly comprehensive for older teens. Written by an internationally recognized sexuality expert who has been featured on EWTN, Catholic Family Radio, and Fox Television.

Please note: This program is best if taught by a parent but can be self-taught.

This item received 2 stars overall. Not Recommended for Teens

Sexual Wisdom for Catholic Adololescents is not a book I will be handing over to my older teens (it's recommended for 16-17 year olds or juniors in high school); not because I don't think they can handle the information but because I think the book focuses too much on 'scare' tactics. I was looking for a program that would focus on the joys of remaining chaste and celibate until marriage instead of scaring kids with statistics about STDs, unwanted pregnancies, etc.

At times the language used was too coarse; I would have preferred clinical, dictionary or polite conversation terminology. The author failed to footnote most of his data. For example, in Lesson 5 he includes a 2 page chart on Sexually Transmitted Diseases (including name, symptoms, accuracy of screening tests, treatment and complications) but has no footnote to support his claims and the book has no bibliography. While Dr. Wetzel's statistics may be accurate, the book comes across as less s Full Review...
