When one thinks of great orators, people usually articulate the obvious list of politicians and social activists. After some careful thought, religious leaders come to mind as well. But, in the Roman Catholic faith, bishops, priests, and pontiffs are usually remembered for their careful wisdom or their gentle visits to hospitals rather than their fiery discourse about social events. Even when a Pope declares something ex cathedra, most audience members read it as a document from the Church, and not the rhetoric of a single orator.
When we remember Pope John Paul II, however, we think of a different type of Roman Catholic orator. Indeed, of the great twentieth-century speakers, Pope John Paul clearly ranks among them. But why does this Pope differ so markedly from previous pontiffs? How did he become such a great rhetorician? In what ways can we remember him as a magnificent master of public address?
A book such as this hopes to entice the general reader, interested in the life of Pope John Paul II, to read about the specific issues dealt with in the volume. Of course, we also hope that religious scholars will find this book important in their work with how the Pope managed issues in the latter part of the twentieth century.
Perhaps most important, however, the book is meant to highlight the significance of rhetoric. In general, rhetoric is important in how it operates in our daily lives. More specifically, however, we aim to show how rhetoric was vital in the life of Pope John Paul II and, as a result, to the millions of Catholics worldwide.
