Summary Sixteen years into his papacy, an on the eve of the millennium, Pope John Paul 11 brings to an accessible level the great theological concerns of our lives. He goes to the heart of his personal beliefs and speaks with passion about the existence of God; about the dignity of man; about pain, suffering, and evil; about hope; about the relationship of Christianity to other faiths and that of Catholicism to to other branches of Christianity to other faiths and that of Catholicism to other branches of the Christian faith.
