What is Beauty?
A Guide for Christian Schools
Dr Clare Campbell explores the concerns of the 'selfie' culture that makes our children so obsessed with their physical beauty rather than the true beauty of their hearts and souls.
The book raises concerns about the beauty industry, advertising and social media. The author also writes about finding inner beauty through the Scriptures, the lives of the Saints and the inner beauty of the Holy Spirit.
Chapters cover concerns of a primary teacher; using the big questions with children; what is the impact of social media on self-esteem? How can we care for children's mental health? What is the price of beauty? What is the true cost of beauty? Why are we against animal testing?; what is the environment cost of beauty? Does the beauty industry perpetuate hyper-consumption? What is the beauty of the Holy Spirit? Can we find beauty in nature? Can we find beauty in simplicity? Can we find beauty in barren places? What is a beautiful life - St Mary Mother of God, St Teresa of Kolkat, St Philip Neri, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, St Therese of Lisiuex, St Rafael Arnaiz Baron, St John Henry Newman and St Theres of Avila.
"True beauty lies in purity of the heart."
