Good Book, but Lacking a Very Important Document...
This book by Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C. is a noteworthy contribution to the literature on Pope John Paul II. It gives an overview of many of the Encyclicals and Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortations of the late Pope. I would certainly recommend this book to those who might generally be interested in the Pope and, particularly, in his thought. But, given that Cardinal Wuerl makes the exception of including an Apostolic Letter (On the Most Holy Rosary) and an Apostolic Exhortation on St. Joseph not preceded by a synod, it seems strange to me that he would not include space for a reflection on the Apostolic Letter "Novo Millennio Inuente" (On the Beginning of the New Millennium), arguably one of the most important and referenced of John Paul's writings as it reflects on the Church's mission and identity in the third millennium. This absence detracts from an otherwise a good book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
