    Witness To Hope: The Biography Of Pope John Paul II

    By: George Weigel

    Date Released

    Out of Print

    With the cooperation of Vatican officials, more than twenty hours of one-on-one conversations with the Pope, unprecedented access
    to autobiographical and archival materials, and interviews with
    the Pope’s closest friends in Poland, Witness to Hope is a
    brilliant portrait of Pope John Paul II. A biographer with first
    hand knowledge of the Pope, theologian and religious commentator
    George Weigel offers a profoundly revealing portrait of the extraordinary
    man as:

    An accomplished philosopher and intellectual with a deep
    appreciation for untutored popular piety.
    A humanist whose message to a world dominated by the pleasure
    principle and personal wilfulness is that universal truths exist,
    and that in knowing them, certain moral duties are laid upon
    A successful statesman who, despite having lived under totalitarian
    regimes for thirty-nine years, has a thorough understanding
    of the cultural forces that make democracy possible.

    Unparalleled in scope and depth, Witness to Hope includes previously
    unpublished material about the Pope’s involvement in world
    events. Juxtaposed against these historic events is a look at how
    the Pope has lived on a daily basis for twenty-one years: his schedule,
    his personal spiritual disciplines and routines, and his recreations.
    Capturing the heart, soul, and mind of one of the most important figures of the twentieth century from his own writings and reflections on his pontificate, Witness to Hope is the definitive account of
    Pope John Paul II - the man, philosopher, and world leader.
