    Book details

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.

Review Text

  • By Mr. W. L. Burleigh on 7 March 2014

    Seminal, accurate and honest with a clear background picture of power and manoeuvring through which Angelo Roncalli steadfastly forged his path of holiness. It's high time Pope John was recognized again for his huge and life-giving influence on the Church
