After half a century, how has the teaching of Pope Paul VI on marriage and birth control, presented in his encyclical HUMANAE VITAE held up? Very well, says philosopher Janet Smith and her colleagues. This new book shows how the ethical, theological, spiritual and sociological case for Paul VI’s controversial document remains strong–indeed, how it’s in some ways even stronger today, following Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and in light of the problems caused by the sexual revolution. In addition to essays by Dr. Smith, the book features contributions from scholars such as Mary Everstadt, George Weigel, Therese Scarpelli Corey and others. The Krakow Document composed under the supervision of Cardinal Karol Wojtyla, (later Pope John II), which provided research by moral theologians and other experts is included. Paper.
