Pope John Paul II
Simon & Schuster UK, 2016年8月11日 - 176 頁
Pope John Paul II was one of the pivotal figures of the last century, the spiritual head of more than one billion believers and a world statesman of immense stature and influence. Yet he remains a mystery - theologically, politically, and personally. Through unprecedented access to both the Pope himself and those close to him, veteran New York Times correspondent and award-winning author Tad Szulc delivers the definitive biography of John Paul II. This strikingly intimate portrait highlights the Polishness that shaped the Pope's mysticism and pragmatism, while providing a behind-the-scenes look at the significant events of his public and private life, including: the inside story of the negotiations involving John Paul II, Soviet President Gorbachev and General Jaruzelski of Poland that led to Poland's and Eastern Europe's transition from communism to democracy; John Paul II's secret diplomacy, which resulted in the establishment of relations between the Holy See and Israel; the never-before-told story of how the Polish communist regime helped to 'make' Karol Wojtyla an archbishop, the key step on his road to the papacy.
Fascinating and thought-provoking, this biography of Pope John Paul II is vital reading not only for Roman Catholics, but for anyone interested in one of the most important figures of our time.
