Pope Francis the Family and Divorce: In Defence of Truth and Divorce
Stephen Walford – Preface by Pope Francis
Stephen Walford writes,“Chapter Eight will surely be remembered years from now as one of the most controversial things a Pope has written as part of the ordinary magisterium. In dealing with the pastoral care of those in irregular situations—such as the divorced and civilly remarried—it presents a substantial challenge, inviting all to step outside the comfort zone wrought by a general rule and discipline-based approach to complex moral issues."
In response to dissenters of the papal magisterium on Amoris Laetitia, Walford has written a book that is sure to spark discussion. It calls for approaching with love, compassion, and mercy those who find themselves in complex relationships. This is in keeping with the understanding that Pope Francis teaches with the authority of Christ. This book speaks to lay persons as well as to clergy and members of academia.
