This is not the first nor will it be the last of the biographies I have read by this same author. Many shorter biographies can read like a 10th grade textbook or a Wikipedia article. You will not find that with Mr. North's books. I always look forward to reading his books because I know they will be full of solid information, put together to be easily consumed but without the "fluff" that is sometimes put in just to lengthen the book.
Keep it up Mr. North, great work as usual.
actions of Hitler and communist Russia. All of these factors shaped the way he approached his life as a priest and ultimately as Pope. Great insights.
This pope had a fascinating life and a memorable papacy. I'm not Catholic and didn't know much about this pope or his enthralling life. He may be canonized as early as tomorrow, December 8th.
I was especially impressed with John Paul II for his efforts to make common cause with Judaism and all Christian faiths. He was a true uniter, not a divider. He also stands out in history as a leader in the fight for human rights. Highly recommended!
