Since 1967, the New Catholic Encyclopedia has been reprinted several times, and four supplemental volumes have kept the coverage current through 1995. Now, a new volume promising the same scholarship and comprehensive, up-to-date coverage that the library community widely hailed is available. Jubilee Volume: The Wojtyla Years focuses on the pontificate of John Paul II and includes thematic essays that present the man and his work in such headings as:
"New material, especially about the controversial topics of gender and reproduction, has been added. Older articles have been revised, or their bibliographies updated... The scope of this edition is, in fact, impressively broad... Recent news about sexual abuse by members of the clergy is not mentioned, no doubt because of inevitable delays in publishing so large a reference set... Highly recommended."
