John Paul the Great: Remembering a Spiritual Father
written testimony about . . . the most historically recognized pope"
("Library Journal") With such accla imed books as "When Character Was
King," Peggy Noonan has become one of our most eloquent and respected
commentators. Now she offers a stirring portrait of a spiritual and
intellectual giant who personally confronted all of the worst tragedies of
his age. Drawing on scholarship, interviews with prominent Catholics, and
her own experience, Noonan traces the extraordinary life and struggles of
Pope John Paul II with characteristic insight and probity-and explores how
much we can learn from his leadership, diplomacy, humility, and holiness.
Passionate and often deeply personal, "John Paul the Great" is as
exceptional as the man it celebrates.
