One of the things that has so annoyed me in working on engaging the encyclicals of Pope John Paul II has been the fact that there is no complete collection of his encyclicals in print. There once was such a volume, but it has since gone out of print and can’t be found online for under $200 (U.S.). I’ll certainly be doing what I can to get a Wipf & Stock reprint going for this book, but I don’t know what complications there might be in trying to get a collection of a former pontiff’s back in print. Regardless, it is a tragedy that these important theological writings are not readily available in one volume. Being able to print stuff of the Vatican website is no subsititute for a bound and printed volume!
