From behind the scenes at the Vatican to his pastoral trips, the Pope emerges as a man of faith in solitary prayer and as a statesman at the table with the world's most powerful politicians. Karel Wojtyla appears more than ever as a complex figure restored to his genuine human dimension. In the final chapter of this remarkable volume, the ecumenical role of the Pope, perhaps the most distinguishing feature of his pontificate, is documented.
Many pictures in the book are taken from John Paul ll's unforgettable pilgrimage to Jerusalem where he performed his role as ambassador of the message of evangelism. This awesome photographic record does more than simply document these historic events; it constitutes the definitive portrait of John Paul ll, an extraordinary Pope in extraordinary times.
