Overview

A great international bestseller, the book in which, on the eve of the millennium, Pope John Paul II brings to an accessible level the profoundest theological concerns of our lives. He goes to the heart of his personal beliefs and speaks with passion about the existence of God; about the dignity of man; about pain, suffering, and evil; about eternal life and the meaning of salvation; about hope; about the relationship of Christianity to other faits and that of Catholicism to other branches of the Christian faith.With the humility and generosity of spirit for which he is known, John Paul II speaks directly and forthrightly to all people. His message: Be not afraid!

Fifteen years into his Papacy, and on the eve of the third millennium, Pope John Paul II goes to the heart of his personal beliefs and speaks with passion about the existence of God; about pain, suffering, and evil; about "salvation"; and about the relationship of Catholicism to other branches of the Christian faith. With the humility and generosity of spirit for which he is well known, John Paul speaks forthrightly to all people. (Religion--Roman Catholic)

    What a good shepherd!

    My soul rejoice the brilliance of his theological insights. The pope's humility and generousity reflect the manner he answered the questions.

    How do you rate a pope?

    First, I'm not Catholic, but I found this book to be beautifully written and articulate. In putting together a book I was working on for Putnam, I wanted to get the pope's understanding of end-time prophecies. This was the right book, but I got much more than that. One of the poignant parts of the book was the pope's explanation for all the divisions in the Church. First, he acknowledges that many of these divisions came about because of the sins of Christians against one another. (Though he doesn't say on which side, but presumeably on all sides.) The pope is surprisingly affirmative of the different denominations that have split off from Catholicism. He asks, 'Could it not be that these divisions have also been a path continually leading the Church to discover the untold wealth contained in Christ's Gospel. . . ? Perhaps all this wealth would not have come to light otherwise. . . . It is necessary for humanity to achieve unity through plurality. . . .' I recommend the book to any non-Catholic who wants to get a more accurate perspective of what the Roman Catholic Church believes at its heart.

    The Pope of the People speaks to his children so powerfully and

    The Pope of the People speaks to his children so powerfully and movingly in CROSSING THE THRESHOLD OF HOPE. I read this book by Pope John Paul II twenty years after the hardcover edition was published, and discovered that it is a timeless work that is as relevant today as it was when it was first written, just as the Bible is. Pope John Paul II, now a Saint, is truly one of the most important and noteworthy authors of our time. He writes so significantly regarding not only the Catholic Church, which he led for so many years, but for the faith in and hope for all mankind. His explanations of God, the Gospels, Jesus Christ, faith, the Blessed Mother, the Catholic Church, Christianity, eternal life and salvation, the Apostles, and prayer are so insightful that it will resonate in the lives of every Christian.
