Witness To Hope by George Weigel is the definitive biography of Pope John Paul II.
Moreover, Witness To Hope by George Weigel is the authoritative biography of one of the singular figures of our time. With unprecedented cooperation from John Paul II and the people who knew and worked with him throughout his life, George Weigel offers a groundbreaking portrait of the Pope as a man, a thinker, and a leader whose religious convictions defined a new approach to world politics and changed the course of history. As even his critics concede, Pope John Paul II occupied a unique place on the world stage and put down intellectual markers that no one could ignore or avoid as humanity entered a new millennium fraught with possibility and danger.
The Pope was a man of prodigious energy who played a crucial yet insufficiently explored role in some of the most momentous events of our time, including the collapse of European communism, the quest for peace in the Middle East, and the democratic transformation of Latin America. This updated edition of Witness to Hope explains how this "man from a far country" did all of that, and much more. Witness To Hope by George Weigel reveals what both his accomplishments and the unfinished business of his pontificate mean for the future of the Church and the world.
