Pope Francis's apostolic exhortation entitled Amoris Laetitia deals with the pressing issues of marriage and the family today. It was welcomed by many as liberating good news, but at the same time has been an object of contentious argument and criticism. Here in his latest book,Cardinal Walter Jasper clearly and determinedly avoids any polemic while pointing out that Amoris Laetitia does not represent a new doctrine. Cardinal Kasper shows how it takes the challenge of the Gospel seriously and presents a creative renewal of the tradition that fully complies with and carefully continues the views of the Second Vatican Council as well as the pontificates of John Paul II and Benedict XVI. The Apostolic Exhortation Amoris Laetitia has sparked a lively discussion. While many readers have perceived the text as liberating, others with mixed feelings have made pointed arguments about its meaning. Cardinal Kapser points out that it is based on the Gospel and the documents of the Second Vatican Council, is a creative renewal of the tradition that picks up and carefully continues the work of the last pontificates. In the service of 'the Joy of Love', Kasper constructively conrtributes to the discussion while taking in all points of view.
