+  Life and Love: Opening Your Heart to God’s Design

  • Description: "Human life. We marvel at its complexity, we wonder at its fragility, and as Catholics we embrace its dignity. But as far back as 1880, the Church has faced the reality that our culture often stands in opposition to God's loving design for life, love, marriage, and family. In Life and Love: Opening Your Heart to God's Design, Terry Polakovic takes us on a fascinating tour of eight Church documents, spanning nearly 140 years, that pertain to human life and love."
