An authoritative biography but an inspiration too,
By A Customer
This review is from: Witness to Hope: The biography of Pope John Paul II (Hardcover)
Any Christian who wonders what the Pope is really all about should try this vast book. It is not just a life - it is an account of a remarkable and inspirational person. The Holy Father is living proof that an intellectual can also be a mystic. His wartime experiences, his early life as a priest in Poland under communism, keeping faith alive under enormous pressure - these put many of his later actions, which I don't feel so happy about, such as his backing for Opus Dei, into a better perspective for me.
