The Saint for Shalom: How Pope John Paul II Transformed Catholic-Jewish Relations
This treasury bears witness to the extraordinary contributions made by John Paul II to the historic dialogue between Jews and Christians. The pontiff devoted much of his papacy to reconciliation between the two congregations and their beliefs. By courageously confronting one of civilization’s longest and most tragic religious conflicts, he built bridges of respect and understanding fostering a historic rapprochement between Catholics and Jews. This complete collection of John Paul II's public writings on Jews, Judaism, and Israel serves as a model for reconciliation, inspiring both believers and non-believers to pursue deeper understanding and work together in harmony to help improve the world and strive for peace.
