4.0 out of 5 stars A good read
This is a very good read. Cornwell takes an overview of John Paul's pontificate. I didn't agree with most of his conclusions, but this didn't detract from the book. However, a better book looking at Catholicism today is the unusual From Gangland to promised Land by Greg Watts and John Pridmore. This was a really upifting book.

1.0 out of 5 stars WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY
Ordered this product 6 weeks ago - still waiting for delivery despite reminders, will not bother ordering anything from steviespages again. Totaly disappointed and will seek my money back. Had to give this 1 star to get my review accepted but obviously this is a no star rating

4.0 out of 5 stars An Insightful Diatribe of His Holiness JPII, 7 Oct 2007
By

(REAL NAME)   
Cambridge scholar George Holmes analyzes the long reign of Pope John Paul II, the former Karol Wojtyla. He discusses the pope's accomplishmnets and his views on controversial issues including birth control and abuses by the clergy. The author seems to be making his case for critizing the centralization of papal power. Though he does show us both the good and the bad affects the policy of this pope has had on the world. We see him as pope and a person. The book is well-written, but does not answer any questions. I am pleased I read a library copy. But I do suggest you read it and make up your own mind.
