    A nodefinitive biographical account could one ask for, Witness to Hope or Witness to Grope, as my sardonic brother said years ago goes into extraordinary detail into the John Paul s theological, philosophical, personal, and ecclesiastical agendas, providing an almost completely chronological narrative of his 20 years in the papal office at the time of the writing What this authoritative biography lacks compared to today s famously successful biographers McCullough, Goodwin Kerns, I A nodefinitive biographical account could one ask for, Witness to Hope or Witness to Grope, as my sardonic brother said years ago goes into extraordinary detail into the John Paul s theological, philosophical, personal, and ecclesiastical agendas, providing an almost completely chronological narrative of his 20 years in the papal office at the time of the writing What this authoritative biography lacks compared to today s famously successful biographers McCullough, Goodwin Kerns, Isaacson, etc , I feel, is objectivity for the subject This is a biography of reverence Of course, the individual in question here is the Pope, the head of the Catholic church for a quarter of century and an enormous media figure in his day, but unfortunate...

    It took me quite a while to get through this book, but it was well worth the effort What an amazing man Pope JPII was Even if you re not a Catholic or even a Christian, you have to admire the effort that this man put into living and spreading his faith The miles traveled, the numerous writings, surviving the Nazi occupation of Poland during WWII and then the Communist Government thereafter Pope JPII raised the bar for future Popes He was trul...
