John Acquaviva, PhD


John Acquaviva, PhD, professor of exercise science at Wingate University, writes and speaks about body image using themes from the Theology of the Body, a series of lectures given by Pope John Paul II, select verses from Scripture, and the general teachings of the Church. This series on body image will discuss some of the triggers that lead to body dissatisfaction; offer solutions through faith that can lead to healing; and weave in God’s intention for the body so that we can see it as gift and as a means to gain salvation, rather than as something that must perfected.
