"Paul VI, born Giovanni Battista Montini, ranks among the most influential figures in the modern history of the Roman Catholic Church. When he was elected pope in 1963, he faced the awesome responsibility of guiding the Church through the conclusion of the historic Second Vatican Council. With the Council behind him, an overarching challenge remained: shepherding the Catholic communion during the turbulent aftermath of Vatican II - the aftershocks of which are being felt throughout the Church to this very day." "Peter Hebblethwaite succinctly characterizes the pontificate of Paul VI: "He managed to complete the Council without dividing the Church. He reformed the Roman Curia without alienating it. He introduced collegiality without ever letting it undermine his papal office. He practised ecumenism without impairing Catholic identity. He had an Ostpolitik that involved neither surrender nor bouncing aggressivity. He was 'open to the world' without ever being its dupe. He pulled off the most difficult trick of all: combining openness with fidelity."" "Yet, the life of Paul VI encompassed more than the fifteen years of his papacy. His biographer devotes nearly as many chapters to the time preceding Paul's pontificate as he does to his years as pope. Montini's personal experiences coupled with the tumultuous events of his time gave shape and purpose to the activities and judgments of a pope beset by the challenges of modernity. His anti-Fascist crusade as a young priest; the talents, know-how, and contacts he developed during three decades of service in the Vatican Secretariat of State; the terrorist bombing of his residence while he was archbishop of Milan; the devastation of two World Wars; the stripping away of people's religious freedom at the hands of oppressive regimes - all this helped to define Paul VI."

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"As John Paul II, having survived an assassination attempt and serious illnesses, now enters his seventeenth year in this demanding office, more than one billion Catholics and millions of others around the world can't help but wonder who will succeed the most-traveled and most widely known pontiff in history." "Now, Peter Hebblethwaite, an expert on Catholic affairs and confidant to some of the Church's key leaders, profiles the most likely candidates for the papacy and reveals the intricate and highly politicized process by which the college of cardinals will choose among them." "Reviewing trends that have shaped previous elections, Hebblethwaite then examines the issues that will influence the next conclave's decision, including the ordination of women and the Church's relation to a rapidly growing Islam. The result is this engaging and informative account of the mystery-shrouded process in which the cardinals, literally sealed off from the rest of the world, will elect the 265th pontiff."--Jacket
