Great read, great achievement,
This review is from: The End and the Beginning: Pope John Paul II -- The Victory of Freedom, the Last Years, the Legacy (Hardcover)
Whether one likes or dislikes his teaching, Karol Wojtyla is one of the central figures of the 20th and early 21st centuries. And for good reason: It will be a long time before any world religious leader rivals his combination of intellect, energy, vision and wisdom learned from his personal experience of war and repression. This biography is really the crowning achievement of George Weigel's career. It's elegantly written, thoroughly researched and a vividly engaging portrait of Wojtyla and his legacy; a worthy conclusion to the story begun in Weigel's "Witness to Hope."
We often learn best from the lives of other people. Weigel has chronicled with uncommon skill one of the pivotal lives of our age.
