Christopher West criticism and a response


This is a little late as I am just examining the controversy surrounding Christopher West’s infamous comment on Nightline about John Paul II of blessed memory and Hugh Hefner of not-so-blessed memory.

Below is a link to a criticism by Dr. David L. Schindler, Provost at the Pontifical Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Washington DC. Schinlder identifies a faulty doctrine of concupiscence (a topic in which I am currently very interested) within West’s theology:

Christopher West’s Theology of the Body by David L. Schindler

Here is a response by Dr. Janet Smith in Christopher West’s defense:

“Moral Theologian Says Christopher West’s Work is ‘Completely Sound’” by Janet Smith
