Expert Reviews of Ted Lipien's Book on Pope John Paul II and Feminism Jun 13, 2008
Wojtyla's Women: How Women, History and Polish Traditions Shaped the Life of Pope John Paul II and Changed the Catholic Church Ted Lipien has written an incisive and penetrating book on the role remarkable women, played in shaping John Paul II's outlook on important and controversial issues that defined his papacy. One of them was the Albanian-born nun and Nobel laureate Mother Teresa. Much of the ground that Lipien covers in his meticulously documented book is not familiar to students of John Paul II's papacy. He presents new information on the Pope's enduring relationships with women who had an enormous impact on his life, offers original interpretations, and makes a significant contribution in advancing the theoretical discussion on John Paul II's papacy. The greatest strength of "Wojtyla's Women" lies in the author's impassioned analysis of astonishingly complex issues and events. Lipien's landmark book opens new paths for other scholars and is essential reading for specialists as well as the wider public. Dr. Elez Biberaj, author of Albania in Transition: The Rocky Road to Democracy
Extremely detailed research into a heretofore unexamined aspect of the beloved Pope John Paul II's life. This book is worthwhile reading for anyone interested in the personal network of highly influential women who shaped John Paul II's attitudes, particularly on the debate of women's roles. Dr. Nancy Snow, author of Information War
An important book. Few persons are as qualified as Ted Lipien to enlighten readers about Pope John Paul II's Polish roots -- and the impact that they had on his views on women. Lipien provides a stimulating analysis of the Pope's ideas on gender roles and how John Paul believed the Church should deal with sexual issues. While he does not agree with many of the Pope's stands on women, Lipien makes a laudatory effort to understand -- and explain -- them. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the relationship between feminism and Catholicism, a key issue of our times. Dr. John H. Brown, former U.S. diplomat in Poland, editor of Public Diplomacy Press Review
