Setting the Stage: Early Plays of St. John Paul II
Two gems of literary history - long out of print for English readers - are available once again! The early rare plays of Pope John Paul II (Karol Wojtyla) include "Our God's Brother" and "Radiation of Fatherhood."
This long-awaited edition is the result of contracts with both the Vatican and the estate of the original translator approved by St. John Paul II himself for the English version.
Anyone striving to understand the origins of St. John Paul II’s ideas about the human person should read these two plays. They present the beauty of the creation of God, “made in His image,” made to become more through human action as we journey towards that destiny we’re all created for. Book includes commentary by Dr. Kenneth Schmitz which gives context for these plays within the wider framework of St. John Paul II’s entire Personalistic philosophy.
If you are of the JP2 generation, you will once again remember the smile and voice of our formative Vicar of Christ. If you are not, meet him here in his most raw, youthful, and yet piercing wisdom.
