Matthew E. Bunson is the author or co-author of over fifteen books on religious themes, and is the compiler of PAPAL WISDOM: Words of Hope and Inspiration from John Paul II. He has also served as consultant to documentaries on A&E and the BBC, lectured extensively on religious topics, and served as television commentator during Pope John Paul II's trip to New York in 1995.From Library Journal:
Since his election in 1978, Pope John Paul II has worked tirelessly to bring the Roman Catholic Church into dialog with contemporary culture and religion. In addition, he has sought to renew the spirituality of Catholicism through his writings and speeches. Bunson, the author of numerous encyclopedias, has collected in one place selections from the pope's encyclicals, plays, public addresses, and papal letters that provide the pope's insights into topics ranging from death and the afterlife to world religions. On humanity: "[Man is a] pilgrim all his life, a pilgrim of the Absolute, traveling towards a goal, seeking the face of God." On women: "Women have the task of assuring the moral dimension of culture." Given the pope's popularity and the controversy his words often generate, Bunson's book will be a worthy addition to most collections.
