SYNOPSIS: Rushed out to mark the election of the new Pontiff, here is a book with three distinct purposes - an assessment of Pope John Paul II, an account of the Conclave, and a portrait of the new Pope. This compelling new book is an assessment of Pope John Paul II, an account of the Conclave and a portrait of the new Pope written by one of the most experienced and perceptive commentators on the Catholic Church in the modern world. The dramatic events leading up to the appearance of white smoke over the Vatican and the public declaration from the balcony of St Peter's- Habemus Papam- has been the most remarkable yet in the election of any Pontiff. The demise of Pope John Paul II was anticipated ever since he was rushed to Gemelli hospital on February 1st. Now he has died, the legacy of this outstanding Pontiff is already the matter of fierce debate. Paul Collins will give a sound appraisal of the Pope's work in office, examining the many controversies and apparent contradictions in his thought and practice. The author will be in Rome throughout the Conclave reporting for ABC on what is happening within, and this will form the basis of the second part of the book. He is sure to unearth some fascinating details about the mysterious processes by which a new Pope is chosen. Finally, the book will offer character sketches of the serious contenders for the See of Peter and an intricate and in-depth profile of the new Pope. Included will be an account of the Conclave, the politicking and the jockeying for position. Quantity Available: 1.
