Understanding Love and Responsibility

After years of counseling young adults and married couples, Father Karol Wojtyla (Saint John Paul II) published Love and Responsibility. This classic work  is not an easy book to read as the language is often high and theoretical. Boston College Carroll School of Management Associate Professor of the Practice Richard Spinello has published Understanding Love and Responsibility (Pauline Books & Media, 2014), a companion piece that allows readers to better understand St. John Paul II’s rich, thought-provoking and challenging work. Based on the new English translation of Love and Responsibility, Spinello’s commentary will enable readers to discover the beauty of Saint John Paul II’s timeless work. Spinello is also the author of The Genius of John Paul II: The Great Pope’s Moral Wisdom and The Encyclicals of John Paul II: An Introduction and Commentary, along with numerous other books and articles on ethical theory and applied ethics. More on his book in this blog post from The Pilot.
