Over more than a quarter century, Pope John Paul II emerged as one of the most influential people of the era, shaping moral thought and political action. He was a pope of firsts and mosts. He was the most traveled pontiff by far, having visited and kissed the ground of more than 100 nations. He was the first pope to set foot in the main synagogue in Rome and the first to enter a mosque. One of the Vatican's most prolific writers, he produced more than 80 encyclicals, exhortations, apostolic constitutions and letters, plus hundreds of other documents and several popular books. He became the first non-Italian pope in 4 1/2 centuries, and he was among the youngest in the modern era, just 58 when he ascended to the papal throne. With photos, text and the accompanying interactive, multimedia CD-ROM, this book traces the life of a charismatic, often controversial man, both at home in the Vatican and on his pilgrimages to the world.About the Author:
