The new book, Amoris Laetitia: A New Momentum for Moral Formation and Pastoral Practice (Paulist Press, 2018), is based on presentations and discussions from an October 2017 conference at Boston College where bishops and theologians considered how Pope Francis’ family life exhortation could be applied at the local level. The volume is co-edited by Grant Gallicho, director of publications and media for the Archdiocese of Chicago, and Boston College Canisius Professor James F. Keenan, S.J., a co-organizer of the conference. Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich, the other conference co-organizer, provides the book’s introduction. Essays not only introduce readers to the theological depth found in Amoris Laetitia, but consider the full document, including its reception in the multicultural and diverse environment that characterizes the church in the United States, and the full range of challenges and issues related to marriage and family life.
