Reviews - What do customers think about John Paul II: The Encyclicals in Everyday Language?
Excellent reference May 29, 2006
This is a great book to have on hand. Pope John Paul's set of encylicals compromise a modern, comprehsensive presentation of Catholic theology. Father Donders makes these writings available to the more casual reader. Reading these encyclicals is a great way to reflect on the great pontifcate of Pope John Paul II. Highly recommended.
