"Encountering Jesus Christ converts both people and their societies. This book explores at length and with the requisite expertise the dynamic of the many societal conversions set forth by Pope Benedict XVI in Caritas in Veritate. . . . A unique response to a profound encyclical."
-- Mundelein Seminary
"Relatively little has been written about Pope Benedict XVIs Caritas in Veritate, and yet of all his encyclicals, this is surely the one that will be remembered most by future generations. All will find a sure guide to the thinking that informs Caritas in Veritate in this marvelous and aptly titled compendium put together by Peter Casarella. In matters familial, economic, and ecological, Benedict and his interlocutors strive to awaken us to the primacy -- indeed the urgent necessity -- of love and gift."
Catholic Books Review
"A well-rounded and well-written selection of essays reflecting upon and addressing in varying ways the significance of Pope Benedict XVI's encyclical Caritas in Veritate. . . . Each essay is worth reading, and altogether the collection of essays form one very cogent work that will leave readers touched by the sensitivities and hopes of fellow sojourners."
