October 11-22, 2021

Taught by Christopher West

What's Included:

This online course introduces students to the key themes of the 129 Wednesday audience addresses that comprise John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.  Particular attention will be paid to the imago Dei, fall and redemption, Christian ethics and ethos, freedom and person, gender and vocation.  Students will be encouraged to journey from “head to heart” in applying the theological concepts they learn to their own lives and relationships.

How Does the Online Course Work?


  • Access to Course

    Registrants for this online TOB 1 course, will receive access to a filmed version of our in-person 5-day TOB 1 course and a digital course workbook from October 11-22, 2021

  • Course Set Up

    The videos are from a previously recorded in-person TOB1. You can watch them on your own schedule, but we suggest committing 3 hours per day in order to get through all of the material. You will not have access to the videos beyond the end date of the course.

  • Resources and Direction

    Each video session is complete with the resources used in the course, as well as directions for helping to make this online course, not only intellectually stimulating, but also spiritually fruitful.

  • Live Group Q&A Sessions

    There will be live group Q&A sessions provided during that two-week period for all students who wish to participate. Details about dates and times of the sessions will be provided in an email you will receive after registering. Christopher West, Bill Donaghy, or Jen Settle will host the live sessions. These group sessions will be recorded for those students who cannot make the designated times and will be accessible through the online course portal.

  • Steps to Certification Program

    Full participation in this course counts towards Certification and the Master’s Degree Programs. Students who wish to attend another course with TOBI or enter into the TOBI Certification Program, must watch all of the videos and complete a multiple choice exam at the end of the course. A passing grade of 80% is required for the exam.
