About the Book:
In an era of unprecedented social, cultural and technological change, the family remains the cornerstone of community and the locus of religious faith around the globe. In In the Light of the Word, Paul Clayton-Lea explores the inclusive vision of family life contained in Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation on ‘love in the family’, Amoris Laetitia. Comprising a selection of fifty-two biblical stories, reflections and prayers, alongside relevant phrases from the exhortation, this thought-provoking book makes a perfect prayer, liturgical and communications resource.
