Trying to digest the huge body of Bl. John Paul II’s writings can be a daunting–if not impossible– task. Fortunately, gifted author and teacher Alan Schreck has unpacked the 14 encyclicals of our beloved holy father of happy memory in his new book, The Legacy of Pope John Paul II.
The encyclical letter has been, in modern times, the instrument for popes to express their most important teaching—teachings that have lasting value for the Church, and often for the whole world. Dr. Schreck invites the reader to become familiar with the encyclical letters of Pope John Paul II. In The Legacy of Pope John Paul II, Dr. Schreck breaks down more scholarly writing into accessible language. The reflection questions and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter help facilitate a systematic study of the central teachings of this brilliant but pastoral pope, who conveyed the truth in love.
