Contemporary Culture • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Graeme Malcolm gives an expert reading of a well-balanced look at the life and work of Pope John Paul II. Malcolm's scholarly tone complements Cornwell's impartial assessment of the papacy and the Pope's contribution to the world at large, covering both flaws and strengths with equal voice. Cornwell touches on the hot topics relating to Catholicism today: abusive priests, political involvement, the role of women in the Church, birth control, and abortion. Cornwell's criticisms of the Church may be difficult for devout Catholics to hear, but anyone looking for a balanced perspective on the impact of John Paul II's papacy will find a thoughtful retrospective read with gentle authority.
