Description

The selections in this collection reflect the heart, the mind, and the soul of one of the most important and influential figures in the world today and one of the most eloquent and inspiring popes of all time: John Paul II.These writings come from his bestselling books, from speeches made all over the world, from papal pronouncements that have set the course of the modern Church, and from poetry and drama that reveal extraordinary literary gifts. They deal with themes as age-old and eternal as love and death, purpose and meaning, and as contemporary as social inequity, racial discrimination, and the power for good and for evil of modern technology. He speaks of war and peace, of gender, of family, of prayer, of love, of justice, and of the temptations and the opportunities, the dark pitfalls and the shining potential of the world at the end of the twentieth century. He reveals his heartfelt feelings toward the Jewish people and about the Holocaust. He explains the Church's position on the sacredness of human life, and illumines the supreme reality and universal relevance, the power and the glory, of Jesus Christ.show more
