Love and Responsibility brilliantly sheds light on the mysterious dynamics between men and women and challenges us to live those dynamics better.—From the Introduction

The essential background to the Theology of the Body!

Father Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) published Love and Responsibility in 1960, the fruit of his pastoral work, particularly among young people. His analysis of the true meaning of human love is life-transforming and practical, shedding light on real issues between men and women.

Edward Sri unpacks the contents of this great work, making it accessible to every reader. The author emphasizes the down-to-earth nature of Love and Responsibility, helping readers appropriate practical information on such topics as:

  • how to determine if a relationship is one of authentic love or is doomed to failure
  • the problem of pornography
  • the meaning of friendship
  • how to achieve greater intimacy in marriage and much more.
Study questions with each chapter make this a valuable resource not only for individual personal reading but also for small group study.

Review:

Edward Sri is a gifted teacher and an equally talented writer. This book shows why. He breaks open Karol Wojtyla's great text, Love and Responsibility, in a way that's clear, engaging and very practical for the challenges of daily life. --Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M., Archbishop of Denver

...a terrific contribution to our growing understanding of the real-life implications of Pope John Paul II's thought. In this immensely relevant and readable book, Edward Sri offers sensible, nuanced guidance on some of the trickiest spects of relationships between the sexes. Readers in all walks of life will benefit from Sri's clarity and common sense. --Colleen Carroll Campbell, author, The New Faithful: Why Young Adults Are Embracing Christian Orthodoxy
