Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312266812, Hardcover)Drawing on years of personal interaction with the pope, and on his unique understanding of the intersection of Catholicism and politics, former US ambassador to the Vatican and mayor of Boston Raymond Flynn shows how John Paul II changed the papacy, perhaps forever. Unlike any other pope, and indeed, unlike any other person, John Paul II has reached out, creating dialogue or creating uproar, but always striving to unite the human community, Flynn (with co-writer Robin Moore, the bestselling author of The French Connection) gives an intimate, compelling and comprehensive portrait of John Paul II's controversial papacy, from its origins in Poland to his impact on the American people and their politics, and his travels to the far corners of the world.
