"With such a past, his future had to be a matter of consequence. And it was - amid open, productive ecumenical dialogue; as dissident voices were raised against his teaching on contraception; in a world made smaller by his efforts on behalf of human rights; amid criticism from left and right as he sought to move the Church forward; as he stood before the United Nations urging peace." "With candor and compelling narrative, Hebblethwaite furnishes his readers with a rare understanding of a misunderstood man, a controversial pope."--Jacket

8 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 491 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

The theology of the church by Peter Hebblethwaite( Book )

7 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the Church is not the most important question in theology. It is secondary to the loving scrutiny of Father, Son and Holy Spirit, to the study of revelation, the divine plan for mankind and the doctrine of grace. Yet, what is the Church? can be the more pressing and urgent question, since it is here that the difficulties crowd and cluster today. The author begins from the paradoxes of the Church, at once an object of faith and of sociological enquiry, God-given yet made up of fallible human beings, undoubtedly in this world foreshadowing the world to come. The starting-point is what is nearest at hand: the local Church. Further chapters examine the unity of the Church, its essential structures and diversity of tasks in the Church. A final chapter presents the Church as the sacrament of salvation and hope, embodying the divine vocation and at the service of mankind

Angelo Roncalli was elected Pope in 1958 and in four and a half years, through summoning the Second Vatican Council and putting in hand a major revision of the code of Canon Law, had transformed the Roman Catholic Church. Through his personality and teaching, and his initiatives with world leaders, he gave the papacy a new vision and set before the Catholic Church a new version of its mission to the world. Today many people throughout the world see Pope John XXIII as one of the twentieth-century's most loved and influential figures
