Unpack the deep riches of Karol Wojtyla's Love and Responsibility with a dependable and thought-provoking guide.

About this Book:

After years of counseling young adults and married couples, Father Karol Wojtyla-now Saint John Paul II-published Love and Responsibility. With insights into how we think, behave, and relate to one another, Love and Responsibility is an important complement to the theology of the body.

In his preface, Dr. Richard Spinello states, "Quite simply, Love and Responsibility is not an easy book to read, and rarely does its author give concrete examples to illustrate his arguments." Karol Wojtyla's classic work is even more relevant today, but the language is often high and theoretical, with very little to bring it to a more understandable format.

Let Understanding Love and Responsibility help you understand this rich, thought-provoking, and challenging work. Based on the new English translation of Love and Responsibility, Dr. Spinello's thoughtful commentary will enable you to discover for yourself the beauty of Saint John Paul II's timeless work, and through it, the magnificence of human relationships and our God-given need to give and receive love.

Features & Benefits:

  • Extensive cross-references to the new English translation of Love and Responsibility
  • Explains Wojtyla's thought in simpler terms
  • Written by the author of multiple titles on Saint John Paul II's thought

About the Author:

Dr. Richard Spinello is an associate research professor at Boston College and a member of the adjunct faculty at St. John's Seminary in Boston. He is the author of The Genius of John Paul II: The Great Pope's Moral Wisdom, The Encyclicals of John Paul II: An Introduction and Commentary, along with numerous other books and articles on ethical theory and applied ethics.

What Are People Saying about this Title?

"Understanding Love and Responsibility should play a major role in drawing thirsty souls into the mind, heart, and thought of one of civilization's greatest men on the issues of our age. Kudos!"
Damon Owens, Executive Director, Theology of the Body Institute

"If you really want to understand the theology of the body, you need to understand Love and Responsibility. Now you can, even without a philosophy degree!"
Angela Franks, PhD, author of Contraception and Catholicism: What the Church Teaches and Why

"[Richard Spinello's] commentary will help anyone who is looking to absorb the richness of the late Holy Father's thought."
Jason Evert, author of Saint John Paul the Great: His Five Loves

"Dr. Spinello's companion to Love and Responsibility is a winner... Spinello 'undensifies' the often dense work of Papa Wojtyla, enlarging on it and making it even more useful to all."
Sr. Helena Burns, FSP, Theology of the Body speaker, and author of He Speaks to You

What Are People Saying about this Title?

"As a simple text dealing with genuine pastoral issues, this is a book for educating priests and counselors as much as it is a philosophical study of Wojty?a's thought."
-Roland Clark, Catholic Library World review
