This updated and expanded edition of Dr. Edward Sri’s classic meditation on Pope John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility includes a new introduction, new chapters for single people and engaged couples, and the stories of people whose lives have been transformed by Pope John Paul II’s foundational teaching on relationships.
Fr. Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) published Love and Responsibility in 1960, revealing a fully formed philosophy of marriage—in which full union can only be achieved when each partner prioritizes the well-being and self-realization of the other. His analysis of the true meaning of human love is life changing and practical, shedding light on real issues between men and women.
In Men, Women and the Mystery of Love, Dr. Edward Sri unpacks the contents of this great work, making it accessible to every reader. Dr. Edward Sri emphasizes the down-to-earth nature of Love and Responsibility, giving readers actionable advice on issues such as:
• The problem of pornography.
• The meaning of friendship.
• How to determine if a relationship is one of authentic love or is doomed to failure.
• How to achieve greater intimacy in marriage.
Study questions with each chapter make this a valuable resource not only for individual personal reading, but also for small group study.
