TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR A NEW MILLENNIUM…
No-one is more concerned about the progress of the human race as it enters the third millennium that the Pope himself, John Paul II. He predicts a time in which there may be a great reawakening to the Gospel of Christ. On the other hand, he documents the ever-increasing threats to human life.
Collecting his writings and speeches – published and unpublished – under ten major headings, 'Agenda for the Third Millennium' shows once again the Pope's extensive knowledge of world affairs and acute understanding of the human condition.
In what amounts to a sequel to his best-selling 'Crossing the Threshold of Hope', John Paul II addresses Faith, the Church, Prayer, Love; History, Evil, Work, the World. Peace and Religion. Among the many controversial topics discussed therein are the position of the laity and women in the Church, contraception and population control, feminism, money, unemployment, human rights, the ecological movements and Islam.
